    I came here for a site visit and this is a very beautiful small island! 10 minutes from Makassar city. If you go there, you have to visit the tambak, you can catch the fish and dine in there.

    Its beaches of white sand and clean although tdk is smooth. Bale-bale 50rb rent and the area around the bale-bale location bin, hati2 beling former drinks bottles. Bathroom antrinya old jd preferably sjk departing sdh wear swimsuit yg didobel dg shirt. The most special is there bpk2 offers GRILLED FISH RABBITFISH. Hrgnya quite expensive, $10, but it's VERY TASTY. Hrs the try! FYI our charter boat from the dock there near Switzerland Belhotel costing 500rb can for a day.

Where to stay in Makassar

There has been a slight upturn in Makassar's options for places to stay in the recent past, thanks to an increase in the area's tourism industry. A solid selection of three- to five-star hotels centers at the heart of the city and also dots the outskirts. Makassar definitely has you covered where luxury is concerned; expect plenty of air-conditioned rooms, top-quality annexed restaurants, swimming pools, gyms, and spa and wellness centers. Budget-friendly accommodations are a little thinner unfortunately, so guesthouses and homestays represent the best value for the budget-conscious traveler.
