VIDEOS: Bali ‘king tide’ strikes Ngurah Rai Airport, Ku De Ta, Rock Bar, Seminyak Beach in unreal footage

More awe-inspiring videos of Bali’s current ‘king tide’ are getting shared around social media, as violent waves continue to rip around the island’s southern coast lines. 

This out-of-control tide shows that it’s a force to be reckoned with and we dare not get in its way. But seriously, stay safe out there—two tourists were killed in Sanur on Thursday afternoon when dragged out to sea by these violent waves. 

Just look at this epic footage of disappearing beaches and you’ll see why you should exercise caution when going to the beach down south:

Tides creep up on the airport runway

Ngurah Rai International Airport General Manager did tell Tribun Bali on Friday that while these tides are much higher than usual, they are not cause for panic at the airport and will not affect airport operations (for now). 

Tick, tick, boom! Time to duck for cover at Ku De Ta!


The tide at this Seminyak Beach resort gives ‘infinity pool’ a more literal meaning! Sea and swimming pool become one!


#kingtide has his Seninyak too! Pool usually has a huge beach in front of it, now it has a beach IN it!

Rock Bar, one of Bali’s most exclusive, elite bars, looks like the scene of a ship wreck!
