    In Qalansiya, tourists usually go to charming Ditwah Bay, some of them take a boat to Shouab. But not far from the village, a real gem is hidden under the rising sandstone cliffs. Qiso Oasis is a large garden of date palm trees where it's lovely to take a rest and have a picnic in the shade of palms. There is a fresh water spring so even the meadows around the palmeria are nicely green with many goats grazing. The place has a kind of agriculutral look that you won't see anywhere else on Socotra.
