Crab City, Socotra, Yemen

Crab City

Head to the north coast along the Ras Erissel area of Socotra and you will almost certainly come across a white sand beach covered in small pyramids of sand- this is Crab City.

Ghost crabs, which can be found all over Socotra’s coast dig holes on the beaches of the island creating these pyramidal mounds of sand while they nestle themselves into their new home, guarding the entrance.
