          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

          the tide is significant, but you can still enjoy the beach pretty much.. Gabi beach is where you can go swim or hangout and it's great
