Kemala Beach, Balikpapan

3.2
#1 of 8 in Beaches in Kalimantan
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.

  • Really too bad that this beach is so dirty... it's nice to let the heat of the city to go to breathe the pure air of the sea but the sand is contaminated by pieces of glass and plastic bags. It does not want to bathe and even fewer want to walk barefoot. It's really too bad.
