As an island nation, it should come as no surprise there are plenty of beaches in Singapore for travellers to bask in the tropical sun. Culture Trip helps you discover which beach is right for you.

Besides taking advantage of the year-long sunshine, lounging about on Singapore’s beaches are an inexpensive way to experience the tropical vibes of Southeast Asia without ever leaving the island. The beaches here are generally safe and meticulously maintained, so you can expect minimal litter. Eager to get your bikini out? We list some of the more marvellous beaches in Singapore for you to explore.

Home to plenty of beach clubs and located in the southernmost point of Sentosa, Tanjong Beach is an idyllic spot to enjoy some quiet personal space. On weekends it gets particularly crowded, as revellers stop by the two prominent beach clubs: Tanjong Beach Club and FOC Sentosa, known to host some hip and uproarious parties. Even with all the hulabaloo, you can easily find a quiet spot in this spacious outreach and just while away the time on your mat or beach chair.

One of the oldest coastal parks in Singapore, Changi Beach is where you get a chance to see the old fashioned side of the city-state – for it still retains that nostalgic charm from centuries gone by. The white sands and coconut trees attract a lot of families and friends who love its old-world charm. Additionally, it’s situated right next to the Changi Airport runway, which means you get the chance to sight an airplane just off the coast as it takes off beyond the clouds.
