When confirmed on Sunday (May 12), the Operations Division Head of the ITDC Nusa Dua, Made Pariwijaya, justified the implementation of the admission ticket having begun since May 1.

They are even forbidden to go down to the reef for security reason. “The closest deck distance is 15 meters from the cliff. Visitors must not go down to the reef,” he said.
Besides, during extreme weather conditions, the area is also monitored by security and lifeguard. There are also restrictions on the area based on the situation and wave height information from the National Weather Service (BMKG). “For security reason, visitors are also supervised by security and lifeguard.
