Sentosa, home to the Resorts World Casino
and Universal Studios
is also where to head to if you want to spend the day on the beach. Lining the southern side of Sentosa Island – Siloso, Palawan and Tanjong are popular hangouts for locals and visitors alike, especially at weekends when all beaches become particularly crowded with sun-worshippers and beach-sport lovers. The beaches are home to several bars, restaurants, shops, hotels and tourist attractions, meaning you can happily while away an entire day or week here. A leisurely stroll from one end of Siloso Beach to the far-end of Tanjong Beach will take you around two to three hours and there are plenty of refreshment opportunities on the way. Free beach trams run the length of the beaches if your weary legs won't carry you back again.
