The access road to Serangan will apparently soon be closed and the warungs on the beach demolished to allow a new development....... not just a new resort, the entire island.
See kurakurabali.com for details.
A new Sentosa Island for Bali........... and 20 Balinese families who have made their living here for years are unceremoniously kicked out.
Shit, we have a friend who owns one of the warungs! Will find out what he knows.
Very sad days.
Great people in the warungs there.
Link to the development
Fucking disgraceful, serangan was such a fun wave and the locals at the warungs were always so welcoming.
Humans are fucked. More blatant greed and disregard for environment. When will it end? When the earth has been completely built out and there is no spare land left but just wall to wall concrete??? All the plants and animals will be either extinct or stuffed into museums and zoos. We all sold out to China now they are taking over the world.
I had a good look at the website. I'm cautious of any proposed development also, but the initiative seems (at least on the surface) to be making significant steps to align itself with ecological and cultural awareness and outcomes. Given the raping of the Bukit we've already seen, and given that development in the bukit will probably continue regardless of the fight to prevent habitat and cultural destruction, maybe this development is a step in the right direction for the bukit as a whole.
All the warungs have now been demolished.
Sad Times...is road access closed now ?
You will now have up to 200 beginner surfers a day looking for a place to surf
Are you still allowed to surf there if you go by boat ?
Still open for now I believe. I think his name is slim or something like that, from baliwaves.com, has been there over the weekend. 5/6 may.
Hi Udo, road was open on the weekend, Baliwaves insta has video footage from the weekend. Should still be able to get there by boat, don't see how they could stop that, but who knows.
I agree about the learners, who knows where they will bob up, wherever it is chaos will reign.
Social media updates this morning showing the road is now closed. Apparently locals can get in to go fishing but no one else........... I'm sure there will be some surreptitious missions attempted.
I wonder what the consequences would be if caught?????
