I enjoyed sleeping less that 15 meters away from the calming waves of the Gulf of Aden in the comfortable tents located in small wooden shacks throughout the camp. The staff, who cook fish meals in the evenings, were delightful and the owner’s sense of humor had everyone laughing well into several cups of tea afterward. The bathrooms and showers are spartan and electricity – as it is on the entire island – prone to frequent disruption. There is also no wireless or Internet available but that again is the norm on an island as isolated as Socotra. A breakfast of eggs, toast, jam, and tea or coffee is served in the mornings.
