About this spot
The Firmihin Forest (also Firmihn or Firmin) on Socotra Island stands as a testament to the island's unique ecological diversity, featuring an extensive area densely populated with the famous Dragon's Blood Trees. This forest is particularly remarkable not only for its concentration of these iconic trees, which exude a deep red sap, but also for the way they shape the landscape into an almost otherworldly scene. Firmihin provides a captivating visual experience, with the gnarled and twisted forms of the trees set against a stark, arid background, making it an ideal subject for photography and nature studies. The forest is a crucial habitat for various endemic species and offers visitors a profound connection with an ancient and isolated natural environment, enhancing Socotra's reputation as a biodiversity hotspot.
