When we choose a venue on one of Britain sea cliffs, we look at one of two site, to check the tide times, for access purposes, but also the size of the swell (waves), as sometimes this can be something we overlook.
How do tides happen? The moon causes tides on Earth; the moon’s gravitational force pulls on the water in the oceans so that there are “bulges” in the ocean on both sides of the planet. The moon pulls water toward it, and this causes the bulge toward the moon.
Both the Climbers’ Club and Magic Seaweed websites show the tidal times, please click the links below:
