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.

The beach itself is not interesting for me. The only thing I like in this place is sunset. you can enjoy beautiful sunset at this place. But if you like to try local food, there are a lot of vendors offers pisang epe'. It's grill banana with many kind of sauce special from Makassar. It is also close to culinary... More

the name fools you. it is a long concrete boardwalk on the water. no sand in sight and no way to get into the water. but still worth a visit to see some of the art work and statues and the vendors. a good place to go people watching

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

There's a big sign stating Losari Beach upon arrival and you may find that beach to be artificial-like. Makassar's aesthetics and beautification campaign shall be conducted by professionals rather than done in a hotch potch way. If you are looking for a white sandy beach, you are better off heading to Bira Beach (the OTHER side). Losari Beach is a... More

Surely it is way better than Ancol beach in Jakarta, but still it is a 'beachless' beach. The shore is made of concrete, so no sandy beach. 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...

Losari is just a mediocre beach with an ordinary sand and a sunset. But it just nice to sit there waiting for sunset while having your pisang epe (a local food) poured with those superb brown sugar sauce, sometimes mixed with durian! for you who dislike durian, you can have one without it, taste the awesome smells of melted local...
