Sentosa is Singapore’s island getaway. One of the key reasons for visiting is the Sentosa beach, or more accurately beaches. With sandy shores, swaying palm trees and cool water, the Sentosa beach conjures up idyllic images of relaxation.
Beyond Sentosa’s beaches, the island has other waterfront areas that are popular with visitors as well. These Sentosa waterfront spots should not be missed out on a visit either.
Sentosa Beach Guide
When one talks of the Sentosa beach, they are referring to one of three beaches on the southern coast of the island.
Sentosa’s Palawan Beach is a family-friendly beach. Attractions at Palawan Beach include:
Palawan Pirate Ship Water Playground – A free pirate-themed water play area for kids.
Animal & Birds Encounters – View daily animal shows by the beach.
Southernmost Point of Continental Asia – Walk across a suspension bridge to reach an islet purportedly the southernmost point of continental asia (although we doubt that claim).
Palawan Kidz City (KidZania Singapore and Mosh!) – A short walk from Palawan Beach is a building that houses KidZania Singapore and digital entertainment centre, Mosh!
Old School Playground – This is a little play spot with old school play equipment.
