Losari Beach
Reviewed August 20, 2012

our ex vice president said that the only place that we can wacth sunrise and sunset at only one spot is losari beach. i dont know wether its true or flase, but i'm not happen to prove that yet. losari beach actually is a beautiful beach but its dirty, i think makasar goverment has to take care this problem in the future, before its too late.

I don't quite understand all the negative reviews- if you are expecting a waterfront area with the cleanliness of Northern Europe or Singapore then I'm not sure what you're even doing in Indonesia at all. But if you keep in mind that Makassar is a huge city in a developing country not exactly known for it's serenity or hygiene, then I think this area is actually quite nice.

It's lively enough to make for very interesting people watching. At the same time, they seem to have an unlimited number of chairs, tables and benches available. The sunset is absolutely stunning.

My only real complaint is that all the warungs sell the same thing- grilled bananas. And while the grilled bananas are actually delicious (try it with cheese! you will be pleasantly surprised), it would be nice to have other things on offer. There are literally dozens of warungs all next to each other that all sell this banana snack and maybe a few drinks.

Go elsewhere for a meal. But for a nice snack, great people watching and an awesome sunset don't miss Losari Beach! If you're already in Makassar you'd be silly not to come here.

You are at the biggest seaport in eastern part of Indonesia.
The sea and the beach are actually beautiful, but you can not fully enjoy it, since it has been reinforced with a concrete wall.

The only thing you can do is watching the scenery or riding some riding attraction (boat, etc.). No tanning, no swimming.

It is nice to hang out there while enjoying the Pisang Epe (Makassar snack). Very crowded during weekend

It's already been too crowded. The sand was dirty. Many garbage could be see on the sand. Many local people sold something. The government should pay more attention to preserve this beach.
