Tarakan is the largest city in the North Kalimantan. Tarakan itself originally came from the Tidung Language that “Tarak” means meet and “Ngakan” means eating, so Tarakan could literally interpreted as the “place where the fishermen come to take a rest for eating, meeting and up until making a trading with other fisherman’s caught goods.”

Here are some of the tourist attractions that you could visit during your stay at Tarakan City:

Located at the East Tarakan sub-district, Amal beach serves the vivid view of azure seas and a field of coconut trees. Suitable for the getaway-goers.
