Yet another gorgeous Socotra vista!

It’s a windswept place, and the dunes are here because of it. It was windy when I was here, and you can see the sand blowing off the top of the dune, making the edge look out of focus.

This is nothing compared to the monsoon winds in the summer months. During that time it is very unpleasant here as everything is sandblasted by gale force winds.

I camped in one of many dune-valleys here, and was pleasantly shielded from the wind.

The beach is vast and beautiful – I was completely alone – amazing!
