Diversion Management for Aquatic Activities at the Water Outlet of Houbi Lake to Improve the Quality of Sea Recreation

Recent online news reports mentioned that canoeing, stand-up paddling (SUP), and other aquatic activities have been prohibited for no reason on the western side of Houbi Lake’s water outlet area (commonly known as Little Bali). The Kenting National Park Headquarters (KNPHQ) stated that this decision was in fact made to meet sea recreational regulations in relation to local seasonal tourism changes, as well as special climate and geographical restrictions.

To encourage environmentally-friendly sea recreational activities, the KNPHQ revised the “Kenting National Park Sea Recreational Activities Management Guidelines” in 2020, which included opening the area to canoeing, SUP, and other non-powered aquatic recreational activities. The implementation was announced on April 1, 2020.

Diversion Management for Sea Recreational Activities to Avoid Conflicts between Aquatic Activities

1. During the summer, when there is no northeasterly monsoon, canoes and SUPs will be diverted to the Houbi Lake lagoon area, while Little Bali beach will be reserved for the large number of families coming to spend their summer holidays and snorkeling activities.

2. For the rest of the year, no diversions will be made as the number of people participating in aquatic recreational activities is relatively small.
