(11/2/2009)

The investment of substantial sums in recent years to reclaim and protect Kuta's shoreline has done little to prevent severe erosion in the last days of October 2009. A major stretch of Kuta has lost 15 meters of beach depth along a stretch 200 meters long.

A member of Commission B of Bali's House of Representatives (DPRD), Wayan Puspa Negara, said the erosion damage was severe and has been taking place over the past several months.

A Kuta Beach official, IGN Tresna, said the worst erosion has occurred near Kuta' Pura Pesangrahan Temple. Tresna explained: "The beach sand which was used to reclaim the beach has been washed away. Moreover, the foundation stones placed below the sands are now visible due to the wave actions of the sea."

Tresna said he was worried that (eventually) all the sand placed on the beach would wash away.

According to DenPost, the erosion of the beach is not limited to the areas surrounding Pura Pesangrahan, but has also affected the beachfront near the Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel and the Discovery Shopping Mall to the point that the paper postulated guests may be dissuaded from using the beach.

The Head of Bali's Waterway Department, Ir. Wayan Ray Yusa, said the erosion problem was still under review and monitoring, suggesting that repairs would commence on Kuta's beach in 2010.
