Changi Beach lies at the eastern extreme of Singapore’s main island. Its sands stretch for more than three kilometres in length, much of which is encompassed by Changi Beach Park. Seventy acres in area, the recently-upgraded park manages to maintain much of the authentic kampung village feel of old Singapore while providing facilities which include a cycle way.
Bicycles can be rented for anyone wanting to explore on two wheels. The beach is also popular with runners, as well as local families. They use the grassy banks shaded by trees as well as the sand itself to enjoy picnics on the weekends while looking across to the island of Pulau Ubin.
During the week, Changi Beach receives few visitors despite its access to a 2.2 km coastal boardwalk and its proximity to Changi Point Ferry Terminal. Beachgoers can also often hear aircraft taking off from nearby Changi Airport – the nation’s main international hub.
Other facilities include barbeque pits, a children’s playground and toilet and shower facilities. Those looking for food need only head as far as the park’s restaurant bistro. Additional offerings can be found in Changi village. Although swimming is generally not recommended, fishing is another popular past time.
