When the sea water is high, the white sand of the beach combines its color with clear blue sea water. However, when the sea water recedes. Mangrove roots appeared one by one like the tip of a spear that was just plugged in.
Try to touch the sea water and take a closer look at the tree above the water which is the icon of Lhok Mee Beach. Just like trees in general, there are trunks, twigs, branches, and large leaves that sometimes move and fall because of the wind. But at the base of the tree, you don't see land, but sea water.
