(4/15/2012)

A survey conducted by Bali’s Environmental Agency (BLH) has noted that severe abrasion of shorelines has occurred along eight main beaches in Bali. The 8 beaches are: Padang Galak Beach, Lebih Beach, Purnama Beach, Lepang Beach, Watu Kelotok Beach, Seseh Beach, Soka Beach and Pengambengan Beach.

The head of BLH for Bali, Anak Agung Alit Sastrawan, told Beritabali.com that the eight beachfronts have been classified as having suffered "severe abrasion" by virtue of an annual 5-meter intrusion of the shoreline at each of the beaches.

Sastrawan said the rising shoreline is not due solely to building too close to the water’s edge, but can also be linked to rising seas worldwide linked to global warming.

Sastrawan said that, in fact, almost all the beaches of southern Bali areas are experiencing some degree of beach erosion.
