According to the position of the moon the time of tide changes. The sea is not rough here and the waves are gentle. One can enjoy the bathing in knee deep or waist deep gentle water of a slow upcoming tide .

   Beside this hide and seek of water, the Casuarinas and creepers, sand dunes seem to be swaying on a melodious musical note with the flowing breeze of air touched by the flocks of humming waves on the sea water. When the water recedes making the land open and dried one can observe many dead and alive jelly fish, hermit crabs, Horseshoe crabs,conches,shells of different colors.The beautiful red crabs are also seen in herds making the illusion of a red carpet on the shore.These red crabs suddenly get into their burrowed holes the moment one steps on the ground.
