Here, at the sea, water moves between 2-5 kilometers during ebb tide (the duration between the high tide and the low tide) and come back to the shore at the time of high tide. This unusual natural phenomenon happens daily where you can actually watch the sea, nowhere to be seen in front of your eyes.
