Beautiful
Feb 2019 • Friends
This is a beautiful rocky beach. The hurricanes destroyed a lot of the corals that are to be found in large slabs on the shore
Within reach there are several coral conglomerates, not very colorful but with great colorful large fishes
In several spots, current can be pretty strong and if the waves are strong it may be difficult to get out of the water
Views from the beach are stunning

The Island of Castor and Pollux
Apr 2016 • Solo
Socotra is the jewel of the Indian Ocean, an island belonging to Yemen off the coast of Somalia. From the Dragon's Blood trees on Mount Sand, to the caves at Halah, to the dolphin waters off the west coast, to the finding of the very rare and miniature Rock Frankincense tree it has it all to exit the wonder of discovery. The islanders speak a very ancient South Arabian dialect. In ancient times Frankincense from here, the Island of the Dioscuri, was very much prised by the Nabateans of Petra. The famous treasury building of Petra is dedicated to Castor and Pollux, the Dioscuri. Yemen mainland is not safe at present but Socotra is if you ever get a chance to travel there. My visit was in 2003.

Nice Reef
Jun 2014 • Solo
There is a great reef just offshore here. Walking inland from here, there are some wild rocks and arches on the peaks behind. The site has some structures providing shade for the heat of the day.

As seen on the TV
this was my first time undersea , it was fantastic thirty minutes to discover coloured fish and other sealife creatures.
services are not bad, part of the road is still under construction but its close to Hadibo and enjoyable.

Best place in socotra
Feb 2014
One of the best place in the island. Its not for swimming koz of the rocky beach but u still able to swim in it.
Also best place for snorkeling.
I recommend the local restaurant. They serve best rise,fresh fish in the island. But u should make reservation before luch time by 3 or 4 hours.
Good place for who seek adventure and also peace of mind.

paradise for snorkeling
Feb 2014 • Friends
Don't expect spectacular beach, because it is not. But after just few meters of stepping into the sea you will be astonished what is hidden underneath the sea. Around 80 different kinds of corals, amazing fish of all colours you can imagine, all sizes and shapes... Fantastic and breathtaking... Absolutely worth visiting and enjoying for at least half a day. Once you are in, it is hard to get out of the sea.
You can rent equipment for snorkeling on the spot and it is not costly. There are shelters on the beach that provide shadow.

Superb for snorkelling
Apr 2014 • Friends
Haven't seen a place better for snorkelling whether you are a beginner or expert, definitely don't miss, better to take your own equipment, but if you don't have or forgot, then they will supply you with one.
Worth taking your under water camera if you have.
You can spend the night their at their shelter, and if you are planning to spend any time day or night and want to order home made delicious food, let the guys their know in advance to prepare it for you.
Their fees is nothing compared to the fun you will have there.

Great place for diving and snorkelling
Mar 2014 • Solo
Dihamri is the location of some good diving spots, so if you will come here it's for either diving or snorkelling, because the rocky beach isn't that beautiful.
The diving center is located in the village few minutes from the huts on the beach and a couple of houses where you can rent fins and mask.
The waters are clear so the visibility is very good, the corals beautiful, even though not the best I've ever seen. The marine life is very rich: even if I didn't see mantas or stingray, I saw a big grouper, a whitetip shark, a couple of mooray eels, a crab, a lobster, and plenty of different fishes, including a lion fish.
Snorkelling is enough to see fishes, but diving offers a wider experience and given the chance to see sharks, mantas and even sea turtles, go for this option if you have a PADI certification.

Homhil-a fairyland...
Nov 2013 • Family
I am not a good writer,i dont know how to describe precisely the beauty that we saw...but my 7yo daughter said, to her,Homhil is like a fairy secret land.Yes that is so true.We arrived in the evening,a few hours before sunset,just enough time to explore the fairyland.On the way there,our guide suggested that we should hike up and let the driver took the car alone.so,we agreed and were so glad that we did that.It was so beautiful,green huge field with wild flowers,dessert roses,bottle trees,there were sheeps running around,with cool mountain breeze...just...beautiful..
Once we reached the stream,saw plenty of dragon blood trees and reached the campsite,we were smiling to each others and said that we agreed with our little one,that the place is really is a fairy secret land.
The next day,after breakfast,we walk down the mountain(the other side),the sceneries were different than the one we experience the day before,but of course it was still a jaw dropping view.We spend less than an hour in the natural pool since it was too cold and continue walking down the to Hala Village.Spent a few hours on Hala beach since we had a puntured tyre.
