Tourists sipping cocktails while lounging beside infinity pools at popular beachfront bars have been wiped out by tidal waves as flooding and high tides batter South Bali and kill two tourists.

The surf has been off-limits due to dangerous conditions, but even those on land at idyllic hot-spot Ku De Ta in Seminyak have been endangered by the giant waves this week.

Shocking footage shows the waves crashing over tourists by the pool, while The Rock Bar at Ayana Resort 20km south has been deserted and damaged, WA Today reports.

Two tourists, from Hong Kong and Singapore, died after they were dragged out to sea at Padang Galak Beach in Sanur, local newspaper Tribun Bali reported on Wednesday.

Brad and Lestari Williams were walking along the beach at Angel's Billabong beach at Bali island Nusa Penida, when a rogue wave swamped them from behind and washed them out to sea, reported Nine News.

Social media has been awash with terrifying footage of the waves hitting coastal areas in South Bali.

"King tide has hit Seminyak too! Pool usually has a huge beach in front of it, now it has a beach IN it!" another wrote.

"Everything was so calm, so blue & the weather were just perfect [sic]. THEN a small scale of tsunami wiped our food and our clothes and our hair and everything away," another said.
