Share The Article

Each Legian Beach visitor will soon be required to scan a QR code before entering the beach area.

    The Head of Legian Society Empowerment, I Wayan Puspa Negara stated that as one of the most popular beaches in Bali, Legian Beach will potentially gather large amounts of crowds as the beach was recently reopened when the partial lockdown turned into a level 3 with lower risk of Covid-19 transmissions, so Wayan initiated to implement a screening method using a tracing app called ‘PeduliLindungi’ that could help the authorities control the capacity of this tourist attraction.

    “We will put a QR code on the main entrance of Legian Beach that each visitor is required to scan with the PeduliLindungi app before accessing the beach area in the near future.” Puspa Negara said on Friday (17/9). Apart from the main entrance, Puspa wil also put the QR code on all the small entrances along the beach area as it was recently instructed by the Health Minister and Bali provincial government to help prevent another surge of Covid-19 cases.

    Puspa Negara hopes that all these efforts could bring a positive impact to Bali tourism that has been diminished since the Covid-19 struck in 2020. “With this technology, we want to assure that everyone is safe, so Bali tourism can recover as soon as possible.” Said the man who used to serve as a Senator in the Badung regional government. Meanwhile, the central government has been aiming to implement this tracing app in all public facilities to help them easier control the people’s mobility during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Why do they need QR code for Pantai Legian? Outdoors and beach is safe because it is out in the open. Only need QR code for shopping, warung/restaurant, cafe, bar, hotel, gym, airport etc. Next they will be asking for QR code for Kemar Kecil. LOL. Or before you can breathe. :(

Why the need for tracing on a beach? ain't a mall nor a restaurant or even an airport where people are indoors.

Let's not overthinking it...we are all going to end up in the looney bin.

entering the airport must show additional healt letters, boarding an airplane is subject to requirements, leaving the airport as well as entering the hotel must meet the requirements, going to the swimming pool must be checked, going to the tourist sites must show a vaccine certificate, entering the mall must be a QR code, going relax on the beach must be tracing app ... then where is the tour to relax to calm the mind ???

How practical, and than they get there mobile phones stolen or broken on the beach, because not all mobile devices are salt water and sand resistant. - Also not all tourists have good Bahasa Indonesia knowledges.
