Day 2380 - Family things to do in Singapore - Sentosa Beaches

There are beaches in Singapore?

I imagine during peak periods this area would provide a great bar atmosphere for the grown ups.

It makes sense that given Singapore is an island that there will be beaches. But they're not the beaches we get spoiled with in the land of Oz.

The Sentosa Beach area is more of a man-made haven where Singaporeans can get their beach vibe going.  Its in the resort district and stretches a little over three kilometres and is about thirty metres wide.

The beach area has a very resort feel with bars, huts, palm trees, bridges and a bunch of activities such as waveriding, a flying fox, kayaking, jet skis and volleyball.

There are three beaches in the area: Siloso, Palawan and Tanjong.  The area that we went to provided an interesting view of the container ships that crowd the Singapore horizon.

We spent our time at the Wavehouse Sentosa which provided us with a bar, restaurant, Billabong shop, small plunge pool, jet ski activities and the waveriders.  The waveriders are the closest thing you'll get to being a surfer in Singapore.

Plenty of places to relax

Plenty of fun activities to do which you can book at one of the kiosks

My boy was delighted to participate in the waverider activities.  It cost $30 for half an hour (shared time with 3-4 others).  Note:  To book you need to bring a photo ID and sign a waiver (parents to do for children under 18).

It's not a bad little spot and definitely another must-see if you bring your family to Singapore.
