I was here when I first came to Makassar. I didn't see white sands along the coast line, but in my mind before I came to this place that a beach must have many coconut trees and white sands along the coastal area. Okay, that is the unique of the famous Pantai Losari! We just see the sea of Makassar... More

It's quite hard to take good photos with people everywhere especially the ones sitting at the "words". Puddles everywhere even hours after the rain. Inadequate lighting too. However the breeze was nice and it has nice view from above (try some nearby hotels)

The view was good but the seafront was not in tiptop shape. Broken floor tiles were not repaired. Ground level shifted leading to gaps. Rubbish washing up to the seawall. Do not miss taking some photographs or selfie with the huge letters "Toraja and Makassar' that were found there.

You can enjoy sunset in here, a lot of people will come to this place everyday to watch the sunset. Losari beach is one of iconic place in Makasar and don't forget to try the delicious pisang epe in the banks of losari road.

Keep the cleanliness. Nice to visit in the morning or even better in late afternoon. Nice to have more beach chair.

Location beach is in Makassar city center and for such a central location it is actually quite nice. You can take a walk and have a view on the sea. There are also some rooftop terraces at the beach but we haven't tried them. Swimming is not possible though.

Don't expect a beautiful, sandy beach where you can catch a sunset or sunrise.. Losari is just a beach platform. The only thing that you can enjoy here is the Word Statues and other statues which you can take a photo with, and culinary attractions like pisang epe.
