Kemala Beach, Balikpapan

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

  • This is (to me) the cleanest beach at downtown Balikpapan. Entrance ticket is for vehicle only. Some restaurants are available but nothing reccomended. Just come and enjoy the beach.  more »
