The Bungalow Sea View near Ba’s restaurant also faced the same fate, with its foundation exposed and walls pulled down.

According to the facility's owner, sea waves soared high early on Sunday morning due to the effect of Storm Vamco, which in turn wreaked havoc on the seashore lodgings.

“Walls and foundations were torn apart and ruined beyond repair,” the owner added.

Trees and residential housing along the shoreline were damaged in the catastrophe as well.
