In fact, the tides in Zanzibar are not a problem at all, on the contrary: they are one of the most fascinating characteristics of the island. Almost absent in the far north, the tides are very significant in the eastern part of Zanzibar. Amazing! Depending on the time of day, it will be possible to walk for hundreds of meters in a seemingly endless shoreline of corals and pools of water where tiny fish, frantic shrimps and above all colorful starfish live; in a short time, the sea rises again and soon not only the shoreline, but a good part of the beach is covered by the waters of the Indian Ocean.
In practice, Zanzibar offers a constantly changing landscape; the tides are a wonderful phenomenon, and savoring their magic during the day makes this island even more unique in the world.
Of course, those who have never observed this phenomenon (or at least not of this magnitude) and are accustomed to seas that are always the same with waves that break on beaches that are always the same, may be impressed the first time, but with the passing of time they will be able to admire this natural wonder that, at certain points and at certain times of the day, brings to light enchanting tongues of white sand that will disappear after a few hours, to return the next day as eternal surprises.
