Kemala Beach, Balikpapan

2.4
#3 of 8 in Beaches in Kalimantan
Beach Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Balikpapan

Balikpapan features upscale and business hotels, as well as budget and backpacker accommodations. Stay near the city center for easy access to nightlife and shopping. Volunteering at the orangutan sanctuary, however, requires sleeping on site at one of the basic rooms. Remember to take outdoor equipment like a flashlight and insect repellant if staying at the sanctuary.
