You can get to Shauab Beach by boat from Qalansia village.
It takes about an hour and a half then you will arrive to a marvelous
and unbelievable isolated place
of the island.
There is a wonderful underwater world here which is a perfect spot for snorkeling.
When your boat continues its way you will find yourself on a breath-taking sand beach, with its turquoise water, it is one of the best places on Socotra island.
Shauab bay is overrun with fish. It is quite easy to catch
tuna, barracuda or redfish by a trammel net on your way to
the sand beach. You can also hook herrings schooling near
the shore of Shuab bay.
Setting off on a journey to Shauab, do not forget to take a sunburn cream, a kerchief or a cap to protect yourself against the sun. Also, to avoid catching a cold take something warm to put on in case you meet wind and spoondrift on your way back.view map
