A piece of Heaven in Bulukumba

Memories of it still feels sticky in my mind. At that time, in 1993, I along with my friends one force in the Department of Mechanical Engineering Hasanuddin Makassar exotic trips to the beach located at the southern tip of South Sulawesi province, precisely in the District Bonto Bahari, Bulukumba.

Our entourage set off by renting a bus from Makassar. Bira beach is located about 40 km from City Bulukumba, or 200 km from Makassar. The journey from Makassar to the City Bulukumba can be reached using public transportation such as cars Kijang, Panther or Innova at a rate of USD 35 thousand. Furthermore, from the City Bulukumba to Tanjung Bira can be reached by car pete-pete (microbus) with rates ranging between Rp8000,(IDR = Indonesia rate) -IDR 10 thousand. Total travel time from Makassar to Tanjung Bira around 3.5 to 4 hours. The entrance fee to the location of IDR 5000/orang Bira Beach. Schedule flight to Makassar from the big cities in Indonesia quite often, so it is not difficult if you're interested in visiting this tropical paradise at Bulukumba.

Once there, I immediately felt the warmth of the beach. The smell of the exhaled sea breezes and white sand beaches, clean and soft like flour instantly made me fall in love at first sight on the beach destinations of foreign and local tourists to this holiday.
in the evening time, along with my friends, I play ball on the white sand accompanied by the sunlight that slowly fade into place peraduannya. The beauty of twilight that was stunning from the coast where we stand. I chuckle in awe watching the stunning natural beauty. In the distance, the sun sink slowly menyemburatkan orange light is refracted out at the expanse of sea. Saw two fishing boats sailing in the distance, the more increase the contrast of beauty.

In this place there are also diving and snorkeling equipment rental rates to USD 30 thousand. For visitors who completed a swim at the beach, provided the public bathrooms and fresh water to clean the sand and sea water are still stuck in the body.

For visitors who want to tour around beaches, bike rentals available rates to USD 65 thousand. In coastal areas there are also the ferry port are ready to take visitors who want to travel to the island Selayar submarine.

At night, I do not spend time enjoying the night at Blue Beach with down it barefoot. The sensation feels different when dilangkahkan feet above the soft sand while enjoying the waves hit the beach. After that we stopped at a restaurant, and there we ate voraciously seductive dinner dishes, grilled fish and seafood dish typical Bulukumba.

In the morning, when the sun friendly greeting and a bright light bouncing in the clear blue sea, I was immediately tempted to swim and spend more time enjoying the charm of this paradise in Bulukumba. Some of my friends chose to dive and see the beauty of coral reefs all over the coastline this Bira. It is very pleasant!
