The Last Paradise Socotra (Arabic: سُقُطْرَى‎‎ Suquṭra), also spelled Soqotra, is an island and a small archipelago of four islands in the Arabian Sea. The territory is part of Yemen, and had long been a subdivision of the Aden Governorate. In 2004, it became attached to the Hadhramaut Governorate, which is much closer to the island than Aden (although the nearest governorate was the Al Mahrah Governorate). In 2013, the archipelago became its own governorate, the Soqatra Governorate

The island of Socotra is located in the Indian Ocean and is technically a part of Yemen. It has sandy beaches, mountains, limestone caves, and incredible biodiversity. 37% of the island’s plant species, 90% of its reptile species and 95% of its land snail species do not occur anywhere else on earth. In a way, it is its own world.
