Backyard Travel, the online boutique Tour Operator specializing in unique, insider tours throughout Asia, today announced a new 4-day beach trip to Cape Bira in South Sulawesi, Indonesia.
This short beach-lovers’ itinerary brings travelers to the beautiful southern tip of this gorgeous Indonesian island, showcasing its pristine beaches, teeming coral reefs, sleepy villages and unique local traditions.
Cape Bira is a little off the beaten path when it comes to Indonesian travel, which makes it the perfect destination for travelers looking for a quiet beach getaway. A scenic six-hour drive from Makassar city, the coastlines and islands around Cape Bira appeal to all types of travelers, from families wanting a fun seaside getaway to nature-loving couples seeking time out on the coast.
Launching in Makassar, travelers are chauffeur-driven to Cape Bira, visiting Bonto Salluang village and the stunning Bissappu waterfall along the way. While in Cape Bira, the itinerary includes a local fisherman’s boat ride to Liukan Island for snorkeling and beach combing, a trip to the Tana Beru to see amazing hand-built ships and a visit to Konjo to see the village’s iconic ikat basket-weaving technique, famous in Indonesia.
“Indonesia is home to countless idyllic beaches, and many remain largely undiscovered,” says General Manager of Backyard Travel Maeve Nolan. “This short trip to Cape Bira gives travelers the opportunity to see a lesser-known beach in this stunning archipelago – perfect for those seeking a quiet coastal getaway where free time is balanced by interesting cultural side-trips.”
