How hard would it be to have early morning cleaners and someone in a little row boat scooping rubbish from the water? Not a tourist attraction at all.

the view supposely beautiful but unfortunately the smell of trash and all unwanted waste from the city and the surrounding small islands, including the restorants and hotels are making it worst experience especially in morning, you can even find beggars and street hawkers wasting their trash without cleaning afterwards. The street is also packed with too much of vehicle parking... More

there is no beach. It is a boardwalk but the walk is great - watching people, mosque, boats, etc very relaxing and heaps of people who want to talk.

Absolutely nothing more interesting to do here beside taking pictures in front of Losari Landmark. A mainstream picture that means you finally visit Makassar. Nothing special, just take several photos then go out for culinary journey!

Losari seems to come to life at nighttime. It's fun to watch local families enjoying themselves. If only the sea wasn't polluted it would be a nice beach...maybe one day!

The best attraction here was the lovely ocean sunset from right across the popular Kareba Seafood joint. One could also get a pencil or crayon portrait painted on-the-go at the Losari Art Gallery.

It is not like a beach. Place for the local to hang out. What we did here was taking pics with the PANTAI LOSARI sign. And it is very crowded. All along the road, there are many Pisang Epe food-carts, local snack which is baked-banana with brown sugar sauce. [sweet - I don't like it].

People call it Pantai Losari (Losari Beach) but what I see is a concrete savanna, not a proper beach! It works well as a public open space, though. However, it would have been so much better if it weren't covered in concrete. It's good to see people taking their children to play with the battery cars, but the sheer number... More

Don't waste your time on the 'icon' of Makassar as there is just no beach left, just the smell of garbage and untreated sewage...
