High and Low Tides

Your life on the beach in Kenya will be strongly influenced by high and low tides. With an interval of almost six hours, the sea level changes  with  height  differences  that may extend beyond 12 ft.

At low tide you can take long walks on the sea bed and reach normally submerged islands.

So, the first thing to do is to check the table of tides.

At the reception of the Lodge, a table will show you the timing of the two phases so you can plan your excursions.

In front of Lonno Lodge the low tide creates  three  small  beaches  and  you can take a pleasant walk under the cliffs until Papa Remo Beach and at the beginning of the long beach of Ocean Breeze, with very little tourists and therefore very little beach boys.
