Two Tourists Dead After Being Swept Away By Hectic King Tide In Bali

Two tourists are dead after being swept out to sea by enormous tidal waves in South Bali.
The victims, one from Hong Kong and the other Singapore, were enjoying the sun at Padang Galak Beach in Sanur when the tragedy occurred, local paper Tribun Bali reports.
Nearly 1,300 people have left Java’s Lumajang and Pekalongan in recent days amid continued forecasts of tidal waves and flooding along the southern coast.
Melbourne tourist Kate posted to TripAdvisor that the king tides are causing mayhem.

“Currently staying right on Kuta Beach and over the past few days at times the whole beach has been washed away,” she wrote.
Hectic vids posted to social media by tourists show hot-spot Ku De Ta, in Seminyak, copping a battering by giant waves this week.

Surfs up at Ku De Ta… 8 to 12 foot sets rolling through… Literally?? #kudeta #seminyak #bali #surfsup @lilly_wood @kudetabali

Another unknown Seminyak resort was hit, too.
Meanwhile, The Rock Bar at Ayana Resort is currently deserted after sustaining damage by the rough weather conditions.

The news of the two tourists’ deaths comes after Perth woman Lestari Williams was one of five people killed after being swept out to sea on her honeymoon earlier in the month.
If you’re in Bali, or have plans to visit in the very near future, please be bloody careful – and don’t swim at closed beaches.
