Ola Beach Club
Always dreamt of exploring the sands of Hawaii? Ola Beach club serves up Hawaiian-inspired cuisine like Ahi Poke and Kua’Aina Burger. Sip on cocktails served in their adorable tiki-themed mugs whilst lounging by their serene pool. And just sayin’, this is the only beach club in Singapore that has a water jetpack…

Shoes are optional at beach gastrobar Coastes — an ideal spot for catching the sunset at Siloso Beach with live music in the background. Its signature chicken wings and extensive cocktail menu are proven to be crowd-pleasers, so be sure to order those first. Vibrant and charming with its white and blue decor, here’s where you can dine only a mere distance away from the sea.

Casual Italian eatery, Trapizza, is one of our fave laid-back spots for kicking back with a couple of beers after a (thoroughly exhausting) day of sun-soaking. Located on Siloso Beach, the seaside restaurant serves up wood-fired thin crust pizza, pasta, snacks and desserts. Trapizza is famously kid-friendly, if you’ve got some little guys in your gang.

The all-new Sentosa branch of award-winning FOC is now open on Sentosa’s Palawan Beach. The new space boasts an airy beachfront space with bright interiors, panoramic views and a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, including a pool deck and beachside sunbeds. The menu is super tempting, with contemporary Mediterranean dishes as the main stars.

Tanjong Beach Club
Hit the shores for a balmy beach party worthy of the most devout sun worshippers. Named one of the world’s top 50 best beach bars, the plush daybeds, great grub, and sweet pool makes it a perfect spot to watch the sun sink and rise into tomorrow. Their wicked carnivalesque parties with a slew of international DJs means we get our fix of weekend beach parties before ZoukOut rolls around again. Come for the food, stay for play in the pool, and dance in the sand to the island tunes.

Bora Bora Beach Bar
This serene hotspot is a favourite amongst the laidback crowds. It’s unpretentious, comfortable and perfect for when you need a break from the dancing crowd in super styled beach clubs. No need for stylish beachwear here; laze away (in whatever you please) on the sun loungers with a couple of frozen margs’ and crispy calamari.

EAST COAST PARK
A lazy afternoon at East Coast Park doesn’t mean you have to skimp on a good meal, and Sandbank is proof of that – we’re into the breakfast menu here and the pizzas here are great, but check out the Asian-inspired sharing dishes too, like the oven-baked whole seabass (with a spicy sambal sauce!). If it’s tipples you’re after, you have a mind-boggling selection of beers, single malt scotch, cocktails and other liquors to choose from that will leave you doing snow angels in the sand. A short stroll to the sand, Sandbank also has mini pools for little ones to cool off!
Sandbank, #01-28/32, 920 East Coast Park, Parkland Green, Singapore 449875. p. 6247 7988.
This super kid-friendly resto and sports bar had us digging its Japanese-fusion menu such as the lava cheeseburger, amazing garlic butter mussels, surprisingly delish waffle burger and the classic fish and chips if you’re feeling less adventurous. For afters, order the Black Pearl — molten chocolatey goodness flamed at your table! Can’t seem to keep the kids still? Atmosphere Bistro has an indoor play area as well as plenty of outdoor spaces for the kids to run around.

Georges Beach Club
An extension of Pasir Ris Park’s Georges @ Cove, Georges Beach Club along East Coast Park retains its Balinese-themed bistro with its signature rustic beach vibe. Expect a Western grill menu including the Georges burger, beer battered fish and chips, as well as black pepper tenderloin steak that keeps customers coming back for more. Wash it all down with ice cold beers!

PASIR RIS PARK
5 Drunken Rabbits Bistro & Bar
Taking a cooling evening stroll along Pasir Ris Park? Be sure to stop by this bistro for some drinks, especially for its beer bucket deals that will be a hit amongst your booze-craving mates. Bunny hours are from 3pm to 9pm daily, so we strongly suggest you swing by for the golden hour of sunset.

Georges @ the Cove

Whether you’re enjoying a live band, catching a live sports screening or having a go at the pool table, there’s no denying that a little R and R by Pasir Ris beach is the cherry on top after a long day or week.
