Bira is a lovely little sequestered beach town tucked into the extreme southern end of South Sulawesi. The miles of virgin white sand beaches are part of its attraction for intrepid travelers on the lookout for ‘out of the way’ locations to explore. Bira is a diver’s paradise with excellent diving spots for amateurs and experts alike. Sparkling bays, numerous hiking trails and spectacular caves with freshwater pools are part of this coastal town’s attraction. Snorkeling opportunities are aplenty, a short swim into the shore, with rays, sharks and pelagic fish packed into the aquamarine waters! Yet to be commercialized, unlike the more popular Indonesian beaches, the solitude offered by the seaside village is perfect for many.
