Shua'ab Beach, Socotra Island, Yemen


Arguably one of Socotra’s most beautiful beaches, Shua’ab is most definitely worth the boat trip over from Qalansiya to visit.

With a pristine band of white sands that extend along a wide sweeping bay of water that morphs from a brilliant aquamarine to turquoise and eventually to emerald and fades into sapphire, flanked by cliffs, Shua’ab is photogenic, to say the least.

Boat trips to Shua’ab should be done in the morning before the seas get too rough and even then there are certain times of the year and certain days where it might be too turbulent to reach by boat.

There is a village by the name of Shua’ab at the southern end of the bay, accessible by road.
