Sorry, friends! This is not the place which worth to called a beach. This place should be called the park with a food court. You'll see when you there. :))

If you have time spare in Makassar then the Fort Rotterdam, Losari beach boardwalk and Paotere harbour will fill your day and you can grab some nice photos. None of them are outstanding compared to the rest of what Sulawesi has to offer.

Nice view early in the morning but once there is light, you'll see trash floating around in the water and local men ready to gawk and cat-call at you.

Losari Beach actually is nice beach, as you could enjoy the smell of sea water and in the afternoon could see sunset. However, right now Losari not so good for tourism like few years ago, it is crowded now, alot garbage and of course really hot. But you could enjoy culinary there like "Pisang Epe", "Es Pisang Ijo", or sightseeing... More

This is a central gathering area for Indonesians in the evenings and on weekends. On the upside, it is generally clean and friendly. On the downside, it is pavement adjoining the sea. There are a lot of food-oriented street vendors and on Sundays the adjacent areas give way to a few hundred market type portable kiosks. Sunday mornings are best.... More

This place was nicer few years back rather than now though. The good thing is the government already removed those sellers and stalls along side the beach and put them in other places. Nice place to represent Makassar city. I just wish they have more ice cream parlor. Must try: eat "Pisang Epe" while watching the view.

I prefer the atmosphere of the beach 30 years ago before leaving Makassar to Jakarta. The current view of Losari beach seems dirty and exclusive, I could only stand in the seashore while the area is limited and can not be enjoyed for water attractions. Unfortunately local authorities restrict this area as public land, whereas coastal locations in the heart... More

Other than the big red fonts to take photos with, nothing you can expect here. But this is a local gathering station, if you like to see how locals are, this is your best viewing scene. Not a great place for sunset neither. Hate the fact that plenty of garbage stucked in the area/ sea.
