These beach bars and clubs in Sentosa and East Coast Park are great for boozing, chilling and all-out partying
Lounging on a sun-bed is lovely. Sipping on a summery cocktail and having the ocean as our view? Well, that is the absolute best. If you’re in need of a beach getaway but can’t squeeze in a quick escape from Singapore, these sandy bars, clubs and bistros in Sentosa and the East Coast are great for seaside siestas and even water sports.
Tanjong Beach Club
Topping our list is, of course, Tanjong Beach Club (pictured above). 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. We’ve also named it one of the best dance clubs in SG for good reason – their wicked carnivalesque parties with a slew of international DJs means we get our fix of weekend beach parties before ZoukOut rolls around again.

Can you really say no to steamed mussels in garlic and a glass of wine?
