12 May Khao Lak Tides 2019
What you need to know about Tides
Tides are caused by the combined effects of gravitational forces that come from the sun and the moon. A tide is a fall and a rise of the sea level. The tides in Khao Lak change every 6 hours, with the following consequence that the beach grows and shrinks over the day.
There are four different characteristics for tides.
- there is the flood tide, at this time the sea level rises so much that almost the whole beaches are under water in Khao Lak
- At high tide the water level is on its peak
- during the ebb tide, the water level decreases, its a very good tie in Khao Lak to go to the beach
- The water level stops falling, when it reaches the low tide
At full moon the gravitational force from the moon is so strong that the high tide is reached very quickly.
