Indian Ocean tides - High tide & Low tide
Indian ocean & the East African coast can have extreme differences in high tide and low tide. During Spring tide the diffence between high and low tide can be over 4 meter difference in height/depth. During Neap tide result in less difference in tidal conditions with only sometimes only 1 meter. There is a 7 day inteval between Spring and Neap. The tide time shift an average of 45min - 1h per day i.e. high tide at 6.00am will be at 12.00 (noon) 6 days later.
At high tide we have a nice sandy beach, at low tide corals will be visible. We have a 150 meter pier that can take you out into the water. For low tide we also have a raft from where you can jump and swim. Sit-on-top kayaks are available at all times for getting out on the water
