The beach is situated across the popular Lapangan Merdeka (Merdeka Field). There is a huge Sport Center, and just behind the building you can find the Chopper field, and the beach.
The first time, I came to this place it was in the late afternoon and spent most of my time at the Chopper field on the left side of the beach. I took some pictures of the city scrapers and the couples and some group of people just hanging around waiting for the sunset.
My last visit, two weeks ago, I explored the rugged beach (the right side of the beach to the direction of Melawai Beach). There is a little rugged rock where people like take pre-wedding picture. When you climb up the rock and you can find another secluded little beach. If you walk further, you can take picture of the hill scattered by houses. This used-to-be ford location, is a good place to take picture of the sunset. Over weekend you will find many photographers here.

If you are visitor, tourist, who visited Balikpapan in a short time, this place is not recommended. Could be good spot of to watch sunrise with your camera, but the beach is dirty.

In Balikpapan, Melawai is popular to hangout. But near Melawai, there is a beach you can visit, called Benua Patra beach. It's alternative place to hang out with your friend to see sunset in Balikpapan. I recomended this place for friends, but not your family, because the terrain is quite difficult

This beach location is close to Mining Company (Pertamina) where you can see some mining workers around the area when they finish work. I didn't spend much time there but was good to know one of the objects. The location is reachable distance which is about 15-20mnts from the central town.

Benua patra beach is one of location that owned by PERTAMINA. It ussually provide for their family recreation and gathering. But now it seems open for public so we could visit it for free. A long the beach you could spend time with your family for swiming, creating sand statute or just waiting for sunset come up. So prepare your camera for the beautiful moment you will get there.

A bit difficult to go there. Must pay attention to the tide condition. Or you could trapped there. Other than that, there's nothing much can be seen.
