Because of recent accidents at the popular tourist spot, Bali ASITA had planned to temporarily take Devil Tears out of their trip packages that they usually offer to Chinese tourists. The Indonesian Tour Guide Association (HPI) also planned to issue a moratorium a few months ago.

“We have said several times that we won’t stand idly by while there are so many accidents occurring in the area of Devil’s Tear. We took action, but it did take time to materialise,” he added.
Sukasta explained that tourist visits were still high even though there were many plans that threatened the continuity of tourism in the area. He hoped that the accidents can be minimized with the barrier installment and there are no more issues related to Devil’s Tear.
“We will temporarily install 180 meters this year, but we have already submitted the budget to complete the job,” he concluded.
There were four serious accidents at Devil’s Tear this year alone, and three of them resulted in being fatal. The accidents mainly occur while people took selfies at the edge of the cliff and the big waves swept them away.
