We're all about the island life here – check out our fave beaches for enjoying the eternal summer...
We do love our beach clubs: cocktails, sand between our toes and sunshine? Yes please. But for those days when you just want to spread out with book in hand, or enjoy some quiet time outdoors, our guide to Singapore beaches has just the thing. Time to work your way from Sentosa to the East Coast and our secluded islands…
Pictured top, this is one of the more family-friendly beaches around, with the epic Palawan Pirate Ship water play park located nearby. It’s also where you can find the iconic suspension bridge, which links Palawan Beach to the Southernmost Point of Continental Asia, so get your cameras ready for some nice photos when you’re on an outing here with your fambam.
Palawan Beach, Sentosa
Sentosa – one of Singapore’s most iconic vacation spots! And we definitely are most fond of Siloso Beach for its fun-loving summer vibes. It may not be the most pristine stretch, but you can indulge in a plethora of water sports and chill with some beach grub by the water. At night, feel the sandy shores come alive with bar music and hip parties.
Siloso Beach, Sentosa
Join in the fun at Tanjong Beach, which is also home to everyone’s beloved Tanjong Beach Club. It’s well known as the beach for party-goers, but also offers a great view of the water if you are just looking for somewhere to curl up with a book and a drink. After all, it’s tucked away at one end of the island.

East Coast Park
Practically everyone loves coming here because there’s always something fun to do. Besides the usual cycling and roller-skating, it’s also a favourite spot to picnic and camp on weekends, or throw a beachside barbecue. If you go for a beach run, expect to find families with kids playing in the sand until sunset. If you’re looking for things to do with kids, hit the fantastic playground at Marine Cove. If you visit at night, there’s great alfresco dining with an evening breeze along Parkland Green.

Changi Beach Park
This is slightly off the grid, but the journey is worth it. As one of Singapore’s oldest coastal parks, it is constantly buzzing with activity and a great place for outings with family and friends. Round off your day with a hearty meal at the nearby Changi Village, which is also known amongst foodies for its many hidden gastronomic gems!
Changi Beach Park
These islands are two of Singapore’s Southern Islands and its inviting blue waters also make it a popular destination for snorkeling. There’s also a touching legend behind the formation of these islands, touching on sisterly love and acts of sacrifice. If you happen to drop by, do check out the Sisters’ Islands Marine Park, which aims to give visitors a first-hand experience of the rich marine biodiversity.
This is for the island-hoppers, or if you’re looking for a getaway from the main island. It’s just a ferry ride away and voila, the sandy beaches you see there make you feel like you’ve just been transported into beach paradise – we think it’s perfect for romantic dates.
St John Island
Here’s another option if you’re thinking of island-hopping. As one of Singapore’s Southern islands, it’s easily accessible via ferry cruises and a hotspot for fishing enthusiasts. Head for its beaches, which are tranquil and less crowded than those on the main island. There’s also plenty of greenery around to satisfy the nature-loving soul in you.
