Seasonal Inundation of Trash Lands on Kuta Beach as ‘Westerlies’ Begin

(12/27/2013)

As 2014 dawns in Bali, the popular Kuta Beach area of the island is receiving its seasonal wash up of large amounts of flotsam and jetsam that arrive by the ton with each rising tide.

The normally relatively debris-free stretch of Kuta Beach began to fill with large piles of trash two days before Christmas; a condition expected to persist well into the month of January 2014.

Washing into Bali from far and near, the trash is comprised of logs, timber, coconuts, bottles, miscellaneous trash and plastics of all description.

So pervasive is the inundation of floating trash that, despite continual efforts by local residents and Kuta Park officials, many visitors are refusing to venture into the water.

Beritabali.com reports that foreign tourists visiting Kuta beach are voicing their dissapoinment with the rubbish, complaining they had received no prior information of this seasonal phenomenon.

One Canadian tourist, Katie Pierson, said on Christmas Day 2013 that she had heard that Kuta beach was very beautiful, but when she arrived it was “very dirty and disgusting.”

Those working to haul away the accumulating debris say the phenomenon is a seasonal event coupled with the start of westerly winds that bring trash from Java and Sumatra to Bali’s shores.
