The Klungkung Dispar can only give an appeal to managers to pay attention to the safety of tourists. Even then, you need to ask permission from the manager to install signs.

“We also ask managers and guides to be able to tell tourists not to swim if the weather is not good. This is what we will discuss, we will design it first,” added Citrawati.

As a form of government responsibility, the Klungkung Tourism Agency has installed signs prohibiting swimming in dangerous beach areas in Nusa Penida. One of them is Diamond Beach which is famous for having big and strong waves at certain times.

We have reported the leadership (head of service) to have a dialogue with the management of Diamond Beach,” said the employee, Thursday (5/1/2023).
