Timing for low tide at Tanjung Rhu

Hi, I am interested to walk on the seabed to the small island/off shore rock formation near Tanjung Rhu's beach during low tide. Does anyone know the time for low tide in Jan? Will be visiting on 22-23Jan.

Lye, you need to contact one of the Langkawi nature tour companies. Do not try to do this without local advice and I mean the experts, not the hotel receptionist. Its dangerous, and not as easy as you think, I've done this by long boat, the area is surrounded by mudflats. BEWARE.

Thanks a lot for the info, Jeku.

Thanks for the warning Robelyn09. I just wish to walk a little on the seabed. I have done it before part of the way but turned back as we were not sure of the duration of low tide.

Are you allowed into Tanjang Rhu Beach again? Last year when there gaurds were blocking the road and wouldn't let us in.

Dear Lye,

on the 22nd low tide is at 15.20

on the 23rd low tide is at 16.30

but both days the tides are very small due to the moon. It might not be low enough to walk to the other side, sorry

Eva
