Kuta Beach Threatened by Erosion

Recent high tides and large waves have accelerated erosion at Kuta Beach, which large quantities of sand washed away.

Recent tides, exacerbated by big waves, had been the highest in the last five years, and had swept much sand away from the shore. In the past counter-abrasion work had been conducted at Kuta, by rearranging and replenishing the sand. Similar work had also been conducted in the Canggu area, which is particularly vulnerable to erosion. Rock retaining walls designed to stop sand being washed away at Canggu had themselves been damaged by rough seas and high tides.
