7 Remarkable Sites Around the World That Disappear During High Tide

Certain people have their own preferences when it comes to choosing the best vacation spot. While others might want to be at the city, some of us loves the sea and nature.


As people are excited to start travelling again as the Covid-19 situation is getting better throughout the universe, there is a lot to look into.


Here is some idea for you if you are looking to explore new and remarkable sites especially the one that only 'emerge' at certain times.


1) Mont Saint-Michel (France)

Despite its resemblance to Hogwarts, Mont Saint-Michel is an Abbey — a structure inhabited by monks and nuns. This Gothic Abbey is one of France's most popular tourist destinations, attracting thousands of visitors every day.


Because it is located off the coast of Normandy, you must cross a specially designed bridge on foot or by bus.


In order to replace the former causeway, a bridge was built. This allows water to flow freely, preventing sediment buildup on either side.


At high tide, the bridge disappears and the Mount is no longer accessible. However, this is the only time you’ll get to witness Mont Saint-Michel as an island!


2) Horse Head Rock (Australia)

This magnificent rock formation is thought to be 500 million years old, making it one of New South Wales' oldest rocks. This natural wonder, found along the Sapphire Coast, is set against a stunning backdrop of the South Pacific Ocean.



You'll need to climb over some rocks while walking along Camel Rock Beach to get a close-up view. It is, however, only accessible at low tide.


The sandy beach disappears as the tide rises. You can instead go to the viewing platform to see the Horse Head Rock in all its glory. If you're feeling daring, you can take the coastal path even at high tide — just watch your step because the rocks are extra slippery!


3) Jindo Sea (Korea)

In contrast to the castle path, which appears twice daily, the Jindo Sea only appears two to three times a year. Every time, a narrow strip of land appears — this is when the annual Jindo Sea Parting Festival takes place.



This occurs only once a year, usually between March and April. Thousands of locals and tourists will walk from Jindo Island to nearby Modo Island during this time. Locals will be digging for abalone along the way!
