Sulawesi is known to have an enormous maritime potential. Most cities are located on the coast and have several touristic highlights on the coast too, mostly beaches. One of these highlights is Kilo Lima Beach, the name derived from the distance of the beach from Luwuk City (kilo mean kilometer and lima means five).
Most beaches are known well for their amazing sunset view, Kilo Lima Beach has a magnificent sunrise view but you need to get up really early (5am) to enjoy it though. But you can skip the sunrise too and head out here later in the day and you will still be welcomed with a beautiful view.
Kilo Lima Beach has soft white sand and the calm and clear water is just begging you to take a dive and swim in the sea. If you are a dive-aholic, rest asured, you can go diving here too.
But you don't need to swim and dive all day right, so good to know there are several cafes around the beach. Make sure to try the fried rice, fried banana and fresh juices here.
The beach is only 5km from Luwuk City and it's located near a main road so it is easy to reach here by own our vehicle or by public transport.
