Neet, Socotra, Yemen


About a one-hour boat ride from the village of Shua’ab is the seasonal fishing village of Neet.

Isolated in located in a somewhat hellish place, Neet is nothing more than a scattering of simple structures on a white sand beach flanked by mangrove forest and a barren cliffside.

Dhow-style fishing boats can be chartered from Shua’ab with advance notice for a trip to Neet, a venture best done in the early morning before the seas get too rough to get back out from Neet.

Just before you reach Neet, watch the coastline to see a shipwreck sitting on the coast.
