Islands you can walk to at low tide
When is an island not an island?
Arriving at an island destination usually requires traveling by boat or airplane. But did you know that there are some islands you can reach on foot? These so-called tidal islands are connected to the mainland by a natural or man-made causeway that when exposed at low tide allows access for visitors to cross over. But these handy corridors are only revealed for a few hours each day and are submerged, sometimes quickly, as the tide comes back in. Be sure, therefore, to check tide times before exploring a tidal island, otherwise you're in for a long swim home!
