Dihamri Marine Protected Area, Socotra Island

#2 of 6 in Outdoors in Yemen
Outdoor Activity
Go diving at Dihamri Marine Protected Area to see coral and rich underwater life. Whether you snorkel or dive, you will come across colorful fish, turtles, lobsters, and other marine life. The biggest attraction is small sharks. The crystal-clear water provides great visibility for diving and also for swimmers. Due to strong currents, steer clear of the area's rocky beach; visit the sandy one instead. You can rent gear on site and try freshly prepared seafood dishes. Put Dihamri Marine Protected Area and other Socotra Island attractions into our Socotra Island tour site, and watch your holiday take shape.
