Another defenition is an island that only appears during low tide. In high tide they get covered up by they water. is wrong. The correct term for this would be drying island.--JBellis 18:19, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Guernsey is not part of the United Kingdom. Separated an island listed under the UK. Mrs.EasterBunny 20:07, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
- This article needs a similar picture of St. Micheal's Mount with the tide out- to make it clear what makes it a tidal island.
- It would probably be useful to compare and contrast it with the similar-sounding Tied Island.
Islands one can walk to in low tide
I was speculating about if a certain type of islands should be mentioned here (or if there is some more appropriate place for them): In the area of Denmark I live in, we have at least four islands (Æbelø, Dræet, Ejlinge and Svelmø) for which it is possible to walk and drive to in low tide, but not in high tide. But even in low tide there is water between the island and the mainland, just water shallow enough to walk / drive by tractor (it was around 50 cm deep when I walked to Æbelø and Dræet some hours before low tide). Most of these islands have some kind of marked "road" on the sea floor (although not paved). The same behaviour is the case for some of the Halligen mentioned in this article, but not for all of them. Scm (talk) 00:01, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
