It is part of the west Socotran district Qulansiyah wa 'Abd-al-Kr ( ), which derives part of its name from the island.Abd al Kuri is hilly, except for its flat central part around the isthmus , and has area of 133 km2. From the westernmost point, Ra's Khayat an Nawm , to the easternmost point, Ra's Anjara , the island is 36 km long. In width, it varies between 2.1 km (at the central isthmus) and 5.8 km (in the eastern part). It reaches a height of 256 meters at Jabal li . The northern coast consists mostly of sandy beach, with a few rocky points. The southern coast consists of steep cliffs. To the east of Abd al Kuri are the islands of Samhah and Darsah , that are collectively known as Al Ikhwn (The Brothers).A population of some three hundred lives in three villages. The main village is Kilmia, near the middle of the south coast, overlooking Bandar li (Level Bay), with a military garrison immediately northeast of it.
