Bali officials have implemented a new visitor policy at Kuta Beach by only allowing a certain number of visitors each day.
An official from Kuta Village, I Wayan Wasista confirmed that authorities have set a limit for visitors on Kuta Beach by utilizing the PeduliLindungi tracing app at all the entrance points as of Sunday (26/9). “We have begun to install a QR code at all of the entrances of Kuta Beach, so from now on Kuta is allowing a maximum of 8,000 visitors per day in accordance with the government’s instruction.” Wasista said on Sunday afternoon (26/9).
Wasista explained, from a total of 28 entrances, Wasista decided to only open 8 entrances while the rest will be permanently closed to prevent the beach area from getting over capacity. “Each entrance can only accept 1,000 scanners, so it will automatically deactivate once they reach the maximum capacity, so people will be unable to access the beach area.” Wasista added.
He also said that officials will begin to close the other 20 entrance points with concrete to avoid creating a crowd inside the beach area. “We have planned to invite a construction company to block the closing entrance points with concrete as soon as possible.” Wasista concluded. Since the implementation, multiple domestic tourists who have visited Kuta Beach were grateful with this new policy as people have felt much safer when visiting the beach.
