Kemala Beach, Balikpapan

3.3
The water may not be the clearest at Kemala Beach, but it provides plenty of fun for locals and tourists alike. Head here to experience the waves (they can get rough at times during the day, so be careful if you are traveling with children) as tankers go in and out of the harbor. A beachside restaurant offers seafood dishes, so you can refuel or enjoy a drink as you watch the boats go by.

  • The concept design makes the beach nuance of BALI, but need good care of facilities and cleanliness of the beach sand from garbage. 2K admission ticket for pedestrians, 3K Motors, 5K cars

  • If you want to leisurely watch sunset while eating here the place. Location is easy to reach even by public transportation. This beach is famous since long ago. There is a variety of food and drinks as well as Lesehan snacks. And enjoy the view of Balikpapan Bay. This place is crowded until the night with roasted corn and tent café for a coffee.

  • Decent place if you're looking for a good time with your family. Watch your step, though. There are broken glasses lying around on the sand.
  • Had fun!
