Benua Patra Beach, Balikpapan

(40+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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. For Benua Patra Beach and beyond, use our Balikpapan trip itinerary builder to get the most from your Balikpapan vacation.
