Benua Patra Beach, Balikpapan

3.7
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.

Easily accessible from anywhere. Location ex. helipad can be used as a place to take pictures with friends or family. Note If the want to play on the beach not too far from the shore.
