On Thursday, June 6th, powerful coastal waves, reaching heights of up to three meters, struck Kuta Beach. As a result, many vendors, sunbed renters, and tourists were forced to vacate the shore. Additionally, the waves partially flooded the Kuta Beach road and caused erosion, resulting in the displacement of sand from the beach.
The high tide began around 6:00 AM, peaked at three meters around 9:39 AM, and receded by 11:00 AM. Made Oka Adnyana, the emergency coordinator at Kuta Beach, described the situation as quite extreme, noting that the waves even flooded the parking lot of his office.
Adnyana anticipates the high water situation to persist for 3-5 days, until June 8-10, and urges visitors to exercise caution. He advises the public and tourists to refrain from swimming at Kuta Beach temporarily. Meteorologists are also forecasting unfavorable weather conditions during this period, including rain and strong winds.
Kahyo Nugroho, head of BMKG III-Denpasar, explained that tides in northern Bali range from 0.25 to 1.25 meters, while in the south, they reach 1.0 to 3.0 meters.
