It's Too Dam Hot

Bali's Current Heat Wave Chasing Visitors Off the Beach.

Tourists and residents across the island are complaining that temperatures on the island are exceptionally hot.

According to, Bali's hotter-than-normal-heat-wave have seen sunbathers, who used to spend the entire day on Kuta Beach, abandoning the shoreline at 9:30 a.m. to escape the escalating heat.

Michael Lois, an Australian who has visited Bali three time, complained" "It's very hot. I can't stand to sunbathe too long." On past visits Michael was able to sun bathe for five or six hours, but current heat conditions make it impossible to enjoy the sun for more than 3 hours at a single stretch.

Similarly, Lois Jean, a Canadian tourist, said she found the beach heat unbearable.

Because of the extraordinarily high temperatures, the famous 12 kilometer stretch of Kuta beach has substantially fewer sun worshippers than is normally the case at this time of year.

One local tour guide, Made Surta, complained the sand becomes so hot that bare feet feel as though they are burning.

Those tourists venturing onto Bali's hot beaches are seeking relief by wading in the shallows, swimming or wind-surfing.

Officials at the Bali Meteorological, Climatological and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) date the current heat wave from mid-October when temperatures began averaging 33-34 degrees centigrade, several degrees above the average of 32 degrees centigrade at this time of year.

Endro Cahyono, a BMKG meteorologist blames the sun's current position at 10 degrees south latitude as the cause of current heat wave. The high temperatures are expected to persist until mid-November as the sun slowly moves to more southern latitudes, bringing summer to the southern hemisphere.

Cahyono also warns that the high temperatures may bring local showers and conditions ripe for the creation of localized land and water spouts. Cahyono also warned that lightning storms can also be expected during the current change of seasons.
