DiHamri, Socotra Island, Yemen

Di Hamri

Translating to ‘Two Rocks’ from Socotri, Di Hamri lives up to its name with two massive red rock piles that are visible from far away. 

Di Hamri is a marine nature sanctuary and home to some of the best snorkeling on Socotra. 

From the beach, a short swim will bring you to colorful coral reefs, a rainbow of fish, sea turtles, barracuda, moray eels, reef sharks, and more.

Di Hamri’s Beach is unique in that it’s made up of coral fragments washed up on the shore making it uniquely beautiful.

There is an established campsite here at Di Hamri with a simple toilet and shower block and is served by a small restaurant run by locals (their rice and fish are excellent).

Snorkeling gear is available to rent for the day for $10 per person. Diving trips can be arranged in advance from Di Hamri too for $150 per person including two tanks and the boat ride.
