Paotere Harbor, Makassar

(140+ reviews on the web)
Pier / Boardwalk
Conveniently located just a 15-minute becak ride north of the city center, Paotere Harbor represents a bustling hub of seaside and fishing activity. Survey the locally built, famed Bugis ships, which dock here throughout the day and watch as they load and unload goods. Together with the locals working the fisheries, these ships provide a valuable insight into the day-to-day business of the area. Walk down the dock to visit a variety of stalls; head south to experience the vibrant fish market. A visit to Paotere Harbor represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Makassar trip builder to plot your vacation.
