One of the tourist destinations in Sulawesi Island is Losari Beach. Losari Beach is the icon of Makassar City. It is located in Penghibur Street in the heart of Makassar City, South Sulawesi. Before known as Losari, resident called this beach as Fish Market. You can find many characteristic Makassar foods like pisang epek, coto makassar, conro soup, and palu butung. But now, those small shops had been relocated into nearby place. This step was taken by the local government so the beach will stay clean and comfortable.
We can enjoy the beauty of sunset and sunrise from this beach. While waiting for it, we can try various fresh sea foods, like lobster, calamari, stingray fish with affordable price. You can also use the internet facility while eating or waiting for sunset or sunrise. This beach is really unique because it doesn't have sand. Also it's prohibition to swim in this beach because the water is really deep. But we can still enjoy the beauty of this beach by using boats.
We don't have to pay any tickets to enter Losari Beach unless you have to pay for your vehicles.
