Summer monsoon winds on Socotra

Summer on Socotra became unusual this year.

In addition to the very strong wind that does not stop all day, for many days the sky in Hadibo was covered with clouds. 

The sea now looks like this:

South-west monsoon normally ends in early September.

The tourist season starts in late September.

We hope that the new regular flight from Dubai will be launched soon.

    As far back as in Alexander of Maсedon’s times Socotra supplied a great deal of not only frankincense and myrrh, but also Dragon’s blood, which was rubbed in by gladiators before combats for quick wound healing.
