We could run along the beach frontier in the morning because not many people around. However, in the afternoon tables and chairs were set up by the food traders along the assigned area. This drew many gastronomics to have their fills. It is the best place to while away your time either by eating, lying on the beach or just... More

This was a good beach in the past, but the glory has worn out as it became the hangout spot for people of all ages. Trashes from all the street food are everywhere. If you like crowded beach, then you may like it. Otherwise, I suggest other beach, Akkarena, around 20 minutes away for a more serene ambience.

Losari is an icon of the city of Makassar. The place is usually crowded with people in the afternoon and evening.

Sometimes also be a leisurely activity or musical performances. At night many food vendors around... More

I first came to Makassar in 2007 before the current beach facility was built. There was only a busy road along the waterfront. Now Losari Beach is built, and it comes alive at night with street food, tourists, Indonesians, and all kinds of things. Visiting is a must if you are in Makassar, especially in the early evening as the... More

Makassar is one of the biggest city in east Indonesia. There are so many amazing places in this city. you can start from Losari Beach. You can enjoy sunset here while eating "pisang epe'", a famous traditional food which made from banana.

Be ready to watch the beautiful sunset at Losari Beach daily from local time 5:30pm to 6:00pm. Full of tourists and local Indonesian. Every spot is a good spot to take the best shot of yourself or group photos, even selfie. Lots of local snacks and hawkers stalls for convenience. But reminder of some juices sold at the stores, may... More

Not much happens during the day, but comes alive at night. The vendors line the street and sea wall with everything from food and drink specialities, to clothing, toys, games and rides for kids. We enjoyed going out each evening to see the Makassar community enjoying the offerings.
