Kemala Beach, Balikpapan

3.2
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.

  • We went at around 2pm when the beach was almost completely empty, after a late lunch we walked back down the beach and it was full of locals playing sports and generally having a good time.  more »
  • Most beaches are not so good and covered in debris from passing vessels and local storm water drain runoff.  more »

  • Decent place if you're looking for a good time with your family. Watch your step, though. There are broken glasses lying around on the sand.
  • Had fun!
