"We forbade all kinds of activity on the beach since mid-day," Kadek Suwanda of the Kuta Beach task force said.
Tourists were forbidden to carry out activities such as swimming and surfing in the waters off the beach at the time when strong winds and high tides affected the area, he said.
It was not until 04.00 pm that they were allowed again to carry out activities in certain places considered safe, he said.
He said coast guards were stationed at a number of monitoring posts to ensure visitors` safety.
The local meteorology and geophysics office said the winds had moved at a speed of 45 km per hour.(*) END
