Benua Patra Beach, Balikpapan

3.6
#1 of 8 in Beaches in Kalimantan
Beach Nature / Park
A rocky and sandy strip of coastline located close to the town center, Benua Patra Beach features clear waters and rocky outcrops with trees clinging to the cliff faces. Pay attention to the tide here, as the beach disappears at certain times of the day. With cafes and stalls set just back from the beach, and the town center very close too, there are plenty of conveniences close at hand.

  • Very bad choice to holiday... Not come to this place... Sure you will be regret.
  • The beach are fair enough, nothing special with the food, budget lodging. Needs review for sanitation for the best service satisfaction.
  • One of my favorite spots in Balikpapan and a must-visit place for tourists who want to enjoy beautiful sunset in Balikpapan šŸŒž
  • I used to like it more when it was isolated and not so many people around.
  • free entrance, many youngsters here.. can see the sunset clearly
