My experience, Explo description: 

Tanjung Bira Beach located in Tanjung Bira Village, Bonto Bahari District, Bulukumba Regency, Province of South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The distance is about 40 kilometers eastern of Bulukumba capital regency, or about 200 kilometers southeast of Makassar City.

Tanjung Bira is located in the southern tip of South Sulawesi peninsula, makes this place as different objects among others tourism places. You can watch the sunrise in eastern horizon and sunset in western horizon in a straight line. Along the coast, white sand is extended. It feels very soft. Many foreign tourists willing to enjoy the warm of sun shine along the day, than swim, or just immerse themselves to feel the sea water. You can also play volley beach there. Along the scenery off to the waters is only wide blue sea. In front of the eyes look, there are Liukang Island and Kambing Island, which is often visited by tourists.
