Bali Cliff Collapse

Swellnet Dispatch

Yesterday, a section of limestine cliff fronting Impossibles, on Bali's Bukit Peninsula, gave way. The collapse was due to development on the cliff face which weakened the limestone. At present, boulders are blocking beach access either way.

When finished, the development will feature 116 apartments, with prices starting at AUD $585,000 for a one bedder, lavishly descibed thus:

"Set in the white cliffs of Uluwatu, with incredible ocean views and onsite lifestyle amenities, Amali Luxury Residence brings new heights to serviced living."

The following photos and videos were provided by Julia, the first image taken before the collapse.

Sad reality is, there are loads of hominid lifeforms where even losing that kind of money wouldnt even make them flinch. I'm puzzled as to wht they have dug so far into the cliff that there is no cliff. why would? how does that?
That mausoleum looking penitentiary next door is at least ON the cliff.

Definitely a price drop with those units. book em on Air B&B. Would've been interesting to see how the trucks and excavators got into the pit,
I can remember back in the '90's after a long absence and being stunned and angered by the development on the cliffs at Ulu's, it was sacrilege to how it was years before. It's taken a long time before anything has happened, and luckily no one was killed, but will this be enough to stop the rampant cliff development.

Ash, re the access. 4th image you can see the access ramp on the left of image at the front of the excavation. Be interesting if it was the ramp that collapsed.

I didn't look close enough as photo #2, clearly shows the ramp.
Dicey looking site with those sheer walls. Some serious amounts of concrete and rio rod will be needed to make sure it all stays in place.
Rhetorical question, yes. But also wishful thinking, nobody wants to see the place completely smothered in hotels. Anytime from now would be a good time to curb the cliffside developments.

Also a point of reference, one of my friends’ daughters images was used in association with the development. She had nothing whatsoever to do with it. They bought the pic from an image site. She’s getting threats, but she has no involvement at all.

might be time to revise some of the recent 'development' right along the south coast...

https://www.google.com/search?client=ms-android-samsung-rev2&sca_esv=0eb...

the dude's with the excavator jackhammer attachment have been making some serious coin of late

pantai melasti and nearby really are quite impressive in some of the works that have been undertaken

from a scale of 'engineering' perspective... probably not so much from an environmental / safety perspective...

some of those cliff top beach clubs are next level too, pools and dj booths literally hanging off of a cliff edge

some nerves be wigging out today i imagine

and all in an earthquake zone!

I've always been nervous around those cliffs. Staying up there near the edge always gives me the creeps and walking below to get out to impossibles just freaks me out dodging between some of the huge boulders that have fallen in the past. One big earthquake will change the vibe. Hopefully not in our lifetime.

I've often wondered about that. I've heard chest-thumpers say they only measure waves from the back ?
Are they referring to when its a swell 100 miles out to sea? not sure.
What about 20 foot slabs.? That would mean that a 20 ft Teahpoo slab could be called 1 ft because its shaped like a cliff.
Not sure if I've heard correctly, thoough.

If I'm taller than 5ft and I can stand upright in a barrel then the wave is bigger than 4ft...but hey if one wants to call black white then reality speaks for itself.

It can be useful to have two scales of measurement one to measure the size of the swell before it rises as it feel the floor and a second to measure the wave face, I’m sure you realise that a swell can produce waves of various sizes at the same moment at neighbouring locations depending on bottom contouring, but I do get you point about the macho undercalling but by I’ve not had to listen to it for a long time thankfully.

Its not just surfing that has ruined Bali, tourism in general. Westerners of all persuasions have destroyed what we came for. Multiply that by the lack of infrastructure to cope with the numbers and corruption and you get what we got. It happens everywhere we go ..eventually.

Couldn't agree more, grubs. It's vile.
"Luxury" - the most overused, misguided, fool's gold term of the modern day. Every bloody thing these days is sold under the banner of "luxury". As long as we're all revelling in luxury, everything will be perfect. Don't worry about the cost paid by the planet, the animals, the indigenous peoples, or anyone else who actually cares about anything other than themselves! Humans! Aren't we fantastic!

Appalling what we humans can achieve when we see $$$ - in early 70s (if memory serves) there wasn't a single building (not even a warung) along that coastline from the Uluwatu temple to Jimbaran, with exception of a small temple on Balangan beach surrounded by white flowering, perfumed frangipani, and a couple of sail stores for jukungs above high tide mark. There were a few Balinese carrying boards and cool drinks for the few surfers making their way to Uluwatu. The first warung at Ulus must have been built around 1977 or 78 I guess? I slept in the cave at the S end of Balangan beach in May of '76, enjoying the solitude, with a couple of surfin buddies from QLD and NSW, and beautiful head-high barrels in front of 'wave rock' on high tide, until locals snuck in while we were surfing and ran off with our food. As noted, a major 'quake, like the Boxing day one of 2004, will create havoc there, and elsewhere ...

As surfers I think we can all take a bow for what was once a paradise. Can't be helped, our travelling to Indo has always been our birth rite since MOTE & so I can't see how we can complain how Bali has evolved. Our involvement is megga as our culture has been totally embraced by all the "Claytons Surfers" that have been fitted out by the big conglomerates & so compounds the slicing of a very small pie. We're part of the sideshow for all that visit, so it's any wonder that development has gone gangbusters on the Bukit Peninsula. It's a double whammy visitors & surfers trying to be as close to the water as possible. Anyone that doesn't surf I'm certain hold a deep fascination for what we do & they'll pay whatever it takes!

"Could this area of the Mentawai be the start of the new Bali - could be fucking curtains!"

it's what the authorities want!

if you travel indo a bit, and have a bit of local language, it doesn't matter where you go, there's always some 'bapak' spruiking it as 'the new bali" ...or wanting it to be so...

you cannot blame them, they don't surf!

and they also don't understand all that comes with "the new bali"

there's actually 10 places in indo that are planned to be the new bali, with the australian embassy having its dirty little hands in the mix

and guess what...

the mentawai's is one of em!

hence the new airport

there can be a lot of good that comes with such plans... but in a country where corruption is still so rife, there's a lot to question too...

there's a reason russian investment has slotted in so well, they do corruption well too!

and I dare say, many 'investors' are little rich kids from the oil and gas barons of russia

they know how to play the game...

and also, frighteningly, the new prez. loves to spruik his russian love credentials

Hey mredhill,
Here's another classic example of a 'finest' environmental vandalism you'll find right here on our shores. These rocks must hold some spiritual significance for the local Garigal ancestors. Did they get permission to do this from any Aboriginal authority?
The two big rocks at Palmy have suffered severe and deliberate scouring by hacking into and disfiguring the face of these iconic rocks. I wonder what Midget would have thought! What does the Northern Beaches Council have to say about this?
Senseless and insensitive, why did they choose that place to install Midgets statue, why there? Away from the central area too. Quite minor compared to the development above but..yes..human's ill-founded decisions and actions are getting worse and worse.

They have a 5+ earthquake at least once a year and 6+ every 15 years or so. If those cliffs collapse under the weight of an excavator they're going to have to do massive works to make the site stable.

The inevitable collision between an excess of money and an absence of class.

So I finally convince the wife to stay on a cliff top place for a few days and its the Anantara right next door. Not for a couple of months though. I better not show her this article

Same. I'm there (Anantara) and Suarga in August. Hoping the cliff holds.

why not pitch a tent at the bottom of the cliff there and have a nice beach camping holiday instead?

That's what I would consider environmental vandalism.
