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...

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...

As being from Timor-Leste, I really enjoyed visiting this place! You can pay for Perahu Bebek and take a cruise around Losari.

There are plenty of restaurants and Street vendors in the evening. We enjoyed some evenings and many beers at Losari Beach, it is popular with locals. And you can enjoy a good view from the roof top restaurants. In the evening you won't see the rubbish and dirt anyway :) . Nothing special but also nothing horribal.
