Was on the island in Feb and March. These are supposed to be the least windy months. Only had a 10m and a TT with me. Kited about 2 days a week, would have gotten 5 days a week with a 13m. Summer is supposed to be super strong.

Socotra is an amazing place. Don't worry about it being part of Yemen, it's like a whole different country. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. Don't plan on finding posh living here. Plan on ruffing it, only hotels are in Hadiboh.

Nightlife

None.
