We see the beautiful sun rise every day and then it sets behind us on the West coast. The East coast of Zanzibar experiences the phenomenon of daily high and low tides. Bathing is possible in front of Waikiki during low tide as a small sandbank and lagoon is created in front of the resort. The sun beds and umbrellas are available to guests staying in the resort.
