Widely considered one of the gems of Socotra Island, Detwah Beach is the ultimate paradise. Walk to the viewpoint over the small, rocky hill and gaze out at the endless horizon. You’ll see massive sand dunes built by wind at the foot of some of the hills. The gorgeous azure clear water splashing against the white powder sand is breathtaking. Savor it. There’s no one but you, the sea birds and the fishermen. Feel free to camp out for the night and take a peaceful morning dip. Just watch out for the stingrays.
Due to the tumultuous political climate, we do not recommend venturing to this spot. However, if you do decide to try your luck, you will need to be persistent, adventurous, and determined.
