Nang Yuan in low tide

I've seen many pictures of Nang Yuan and would really like to visit it, I read somewhere however that the beautiful path I've been seeing in pictures between the islands is not walkable in high tide season, it is covered in water... Can anyone please confirm?

I am planning on visiting in August is that considered high tide? Is it still worth the visit?

(I am linking to the path below) THANKS

I think low tide & high tide refers to the time of the day (i.e morning & afternoon). I went in January and stayed in Nang Yuan for 2 days. You can see the shape of the island change as you sit there throughout the day.

During noon the path is walkable all way through but as you get to 3~4pm, you can watch the paths slowly disappear (you can still walk through it, but it's just covered with shallow water).

I think August should b fine to visit as long as the weather is nice~
