Sentosa: Singapore’s Best Beaches

Singapore might not be known primarily for its pristine beaches, but I’m telling you: maybe it should be. The island of Sentosa is a lush tropical paradise with wonderful beaches, connected to the mainland by bridge and located only a short drive away from the center of this tiny city nation.

To be totally honest, most of this paradise is man-made, but that rarely detracts from the experience. Even the freight ships at sea fail to make this anything less than the perfect spot for a day under the sun.

Sentosa has an astonishing amount of activities on offer, including all sorts of amusement parks and museums, but for me the glory of the island lies in its beautiful beaches. Just pick a quiet spot and settle in for a relaxing day at the beach!

Sentosa has three great beaches, but my favorite is definitely Palawan Beach, located in the center of the island’s coastline. Just offshore, connected by a suspension bridge, is the island of Palawan – which happens to be the southernmost point of continental Asia.

Crossing the bridge from Sentosa to Palawan is an adventure on its own
