Sentosa is often referred to as Singapore’s playground – it is home to the Resorts World Casino, Universal Studios and a whole host of other family-friendly visitor attractions. It is also where to head to in Singapore if you fancy a day on the beach. The beaches of Sentosa may be manmade and the view might be of container ships, but the sandy stretches that line the southern side of Sentosa – Siloso, Palawan and Tanjong are popular hangouts for locals and visitors alike, especially at weekends when they become particularly crowded with sun-worshippers and beach-sport lovers.
Siloso beach is closest to the monorail beach station and is home to several bars and restaurants, including Coastes and Café del Mar. You’ll also find plenty of nearby attractions such as Underwater World, Megazip Adventure, Songs of the Sea and the Luge. A free beach tram links all three beaches if you are too tired (or too lazy) to walk.
