Kemala Beach, Balikpapan
(2.4/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
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. For Kemala Beach and beyond, use our Balikpapan trip generator to get the most from your Balikpapan vacation.

  • mudah banget akses ke pantai ini karena tidak jauh dari bandara maupun pusat kota... tempat lumayan enak buat menghilangkan penat 
  • lokasi tidak jauh dari pusat kota Balikpapan, hamparan pasir putih dan tempat makan di area pantai kemala sangat cocok untuk menghabiskan waktu untuk menikmati sunset di kota balikpapan 
  • pantainya nyaman dijangkau dari pusat kota Balikpapan, letaknya di belakang asrama polisi, dekat dengan monpera dan kantor pemerintahan, tapi kebersihan pantainya masih kurang terjaga
