The Socotra Archipelago, an island in the Arabian Sea, is a prime center of unique biodiversity. It is historically renown by its rare and spectacular plants. Only Socotra can give you a magic view of the dragon trees (locally known as blood tree), frankincense trees, desert roses…etc. that characterize its mountains and coastal landscapes. As one of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Natural World Heritage Sites in the Arab world, Socotra ranks among the top of endangered islands in the world with over 250 endemic species.
