Imagine an island which is untouched by tourism. A sugar white beach which belongs solely to you, shy people who live in caves, fantastic trees and fauna, excellent fishing, paragliding and snorkeling activities on an island which receives only 2-4 tourists every month. Famous for Blood Dragon trees, Socotra is somewhere in the middle of Indian Ocean and is called "Galapagos of the East". 90% of the island's flora and fauna are endemic and the island remains closed for 6 months due to strong winds. Only 2 flights/week cater to Socotra and the island is a virgin paradise for adventure and nature lovers. There are more goats than humans on Socotra and there is only 1 road which encircles the island. Public transportation is rare and I had waited by the highway for more than 3 hours to get a bus. It is not for comfort lovers, but if you love sleeping in caves, swimming in sparkling streams in hidden valleys, sleeping under the stars, fishing your own meals and catching sunsets from giant sand dunes, then Socotra is the place for you. Right now, it is once again closed due to Yemeni war situation and direct flights from Dubai to Socotra are expected soon in winter. Socotra is not a destination. It is a lost planet, an adventure of a life time.
