Two more sailing boats have visited Socotra on their way to the Red Sea. German catamaran and Irish yacht spent on Socotra for about a week. It was a pleasure to meet interesting people, some of them live aboard for more than 10 years.
Socotra was hit again by the storm. A lot of destroyed houses all over the island. There are several dead. Half of our restaurant was destroyed. The ship carrying humanitarian aid ran aground during a storm.
We have launched a new project on Socotra - a seafood restaurant. Almost all we have built with our own hands. Now we are working on the menu and train the staff. At the beginning of the tourist season we will provide you a tasty and well-cooked food.
"Our mission is to document the presence of rock art located in the depths of Dahaisi cave using the latest photographic techniques. We are hoping they will help us uncover and study the animal and human figures, crosses, and strange array of geometric patterns that adorn the walls of the final chamber."
Socotra started to receive cruisers. Our agency "Socotra Tamam" started working as an agent for sailors coming to Socotra island. We help sailors with all documents, buy food, water and fuel. And of course we showed our guests the island of Socotra.
We visited the other islands of the archipelago of Socotra. These very beautiful places are not spoiled by civilization. White sand, beautiful reefs full of fish and nice people who live in uneasy conditions.
