Kutai National Parrk

Reviewed By Sophie M

We went camping for two nights in Breval Camp. The site was extremely dirty, not looked after despite the number of rangers who work and live there. Rangers who also did not explain much about the wildlife we saw, not even in Indonesian. The plus side of this trek was the nice boat ride to reach the camp and the beautiful jungle with a variety of butterflies, birds, spiders (tarantula), and of course the amazing orangutans. I recommend the trek, but avoid camping there at night.

Beras Basah Beach

Reviewed By Algrey22

You should go to Beras Basah beach if you go to Bontang. It has a very soft white sand, clear water, peaceful situation, and great view. To go to Beras Basah, you should go to Tanjung Laut harbor and rent a boat from the local fishermen. The journey is about 30 minutes. Overall, it's very relaxing and awesome getaway.

Segajah Beach

Reviewed By christianai - Bontang, Indonesia

Even though I have been living in Bontang since 1998, but it was my first time to visit Segajah Beach taking my best friends Fina and Vony from Jakarta. The beach is just a small, we can't find anything overthere, no caffe, no villas, no cottages even tent. Only the beautiful blue..blue...and blue colors surrounding there. Everything is blue, sky and sea which is combined by the contrast color of white sands. The atmosphere is clear, clean and nice.
You have to concern about the tides time. I suggest you to come there in the morning after 9 a.m, when the sea is in low tide. We can see the beach clearly. But in high tide the beach is still covered by water.
My boatman said that we could do snorkeling and skin diving around this beach.

Pulau Birah - Birahan

Reviewed By InnalRahman - Tenggarong, Indonesia

Pulau ini cukup jauh untuk ditempuh dari sangatta dengan menggunakan kapal, paling bagus dan dekat adalah memulai perjalanan dengan perahu dari sangkulirang. Karangnya bagus, airnya jernih, ada mata air, dan kita bisa berenang bersama penyu,
