World class beach, great view and so clear water. Also, you can see sunset from this beach. Some hotels and resort are available. But, it has limited access of water and electricity in some hotels. You should bring some foods and water, since it's a little bit expensive there. Love this amazing beach view so much!

Along the way to reach Tanjung Bira from Makassar you may visit several beautiful places such as Tamalahea, Jeneponto, Bantaeng and Bulukumba. 5 hours drive would be paid off with the panaromic view offered by nature. In addition, you may enjoy white sand beaches, beautiful sea, delicious sea food as well as journey to the islands nearby. Buy some souvenirs... More

This must be a classical day-out trip for Makassar people, as the many wooden houses one can rent for a day suggest. But outside these period, when the Indonesians do not have an official public holiday, the place is deserted. You can walk along the beach. Swim in the sea. Go a little bit further for some coral and snorkelling.... More

It takes you for about 4-5hours to get Bira Cape from Makassar city by car. But all your tired will automatically disappears when you get there. It's so lovely place. You can go to the islands such as liukang loe island and kambing island by renting speed boat or using banana boat. It's cost 300-500thousand rupiahs.. Bira Cape famous from... More

Its lil hard to reach this paradise. You have to ride almost 6 hours to reach this beauty from Makassar. But after you find this place, you will love. Actually this beach is so beautiful. The sand like flours. So good. But so many garbages there. :( I think the society or the government have to concern about this. Its... More

Tanjung Bira offers beautiful turquoise sea and white sand beach and not-so-crowded ambient. Range of accomodation from backpacker hostel to luxury resort is available with reasonable price. Located 4 hours away from Makassar, this is definitely a place to go when visiting Sulawesi Island.

Despite of the long travelling time from Makassar, Tanjung Bira is Worth to be visited. For people who want to enjoy the calm, quite beach, Bira beach will give you headache, but luckily there is Bara Beach that you can reach by walking through the soft White sand from Bira beach. This beach has amazing view especially before and after... More

Bira Beach is crowded during weekend by locals and people from Makassar. At the beach you can find several warungs. Bara Beach is more calm with palms. But sometime when the wind is not good you can find rubbish at the beach :(
