The beach is not like a beach in my opinion,,because the land is very high that we can not see any sand like other beach. The Masjid Apung is the only a nice one to see there, beside the beautifull sunset. Try to eat nyuk nyang near the beach. It's kind of meatball that have various kind. This one is... More

Along the beach you can take pictures with giant letters forming "city of Makassar", "Toraja", "Losari", "Bugis", etc. And there are many 'pisang epe' sellers here. It is nice having a walk along...
