MALIBU - About the Beach Tides


The tides change every 6 hours (approx)…Low High Low High and actually the tide “moves back” about5 40 minutes per day, so if it is low today at 10 AM, tomorrow it will be low at 10:40 AM, etc.

We live with a tide book and plan our walks during low tide… At times we have red tide (with a lot of red phosphorous in the tide) and also we have very very low tides. The moon, storms and other weather affect the height of the tides, both low and high.
