Day 7: Hoq Cave / Rosh Marine Protected Area

Day 7: Hoq Cave / Rosh Marine Protected Area

This morning, we will make an early start to drive to the base of Hoq cave in Terbak village. Before the sunshine gets too hot, we will walk up to the entrance of the Cave. It is more than 3 km long with a water pool at the end and holds a wealth of Socotri history. Inside, you will see ancient stalactites, stalagmites and crystallic formations. Ancient writings on the cave walls and also what appears to be a picture of an old trading ship have been preserved over the ages by a calcite glaze. There is also evidence to suggest that the cave was once used for ritual purposes by the presence of mysterious ‘alters’. Then we will drive to Ar-Ar fresh water creek and beach to spend the rest of the day. In Ar-Ar you can relax on green grass around the creek, swim in the sea or if you feel fit you can climb a huge sand dune to get a fantastic view over this charming spot.

Dinner and overnight at Socotra tourist hotel in Hadibo.
