About this spot
Momi Plateau on Socotra Island offers a dramatically different landscape compared to the coastal marine reserves. Situated inland, it is known for its stark, otherworldly scenery that makes it a fantastic subject for landscape photography. The plateau is characterized by its arid, rocky terrain and is dotted with Bottle Trees, which are unique to Socotra and provide an iconic silhouette against the often-cloudy sky. Photographers visiting Momi Plateau can also capture images of endemic plant species and a variety of birdlife, including the Socotra starling and sunbird. The area's elevated position and panoramic views over the surrounding landscape make it ideal for capturing sunrise and sunset scenes, with the changing light beautifully accentuating the rugged features of the plateau.
