Oceans low tides create their own beaches. It leaves more room for people and birds. People get more room to layout and get more sun, and shore birds scooting between one wave and the next digging up as many small crustaceans as they can. The sun, the moon and the earth pushing and pulling add the whopper waves and pull the drain plug diminishing the water line. It makes for a good low tide.
