The islands' land surface is notably ancient, constituting a remnant of the ancient southern supercontinent of Gondwana. Socotra, originally situated centrally in Gondwana, was in close proximity to present-day Africa, Arabia, India, and Madagascar. Its present location as a continental fragment emerged approximately 20 to 15 million years ago when Arabia separated from the African continental plate, leading to the opening of the Gulf of Aden and leaving Socotra on the same continental plate as Africa.
