          Hey, I will be at the resort at the end of this month from the 24/6 for 7 nights and was wondering how are the tides at Gabi beach around those dates? I saw the tide forecast and it says that around 11am untill 5 pm it is low tide but I am not sure about what it says as it is for all zanzibar and not by location on the island. Thanks
