11 'Sometimes' Islands You Can Walk to at Low Tide

The paths to these locales disappear and reappear with the whims of the sea.

The incredible rhythm of the ocean’s changing tides is so powerful, it can cause entire landforms to submerge and reemerge with each ebb and flow. In fact, many places we consider islands are only surrounded by water most of the time. Sometimes, they reattach to the mainland as the tide rolls out and ocean floor reappears to form a footpath or even a drivable road. When visiting these 11 “sometimes” islands, timing is everything, lest you be stranded out at sea when the waters rise again.
