Created from land reclaimed from the Strait of Singapore, East Coast Beach Park is located on the southern shores of the island. Although entirely man-made, there’s nothing artificial about the beauty of this stretch of light, soft sand, which runs for a total length of 15 kilometres.

It is backed by East Coast Park, which at 460 acres in size is the largest and most-visited park anywhere in Singapore. It receives somewhere in the region of 7.5 million visits annually from a nationwide population of 5.6 million people.

The park provides an attractive wall of green, encompassing coconut palms and casuarinas trees, as well as a cycling and roller-skating path the same length as the beach.

Because of its length, East Coast Park Beach is often subdivided into different areas labelled A to H. Area A at the western end of the beach and areas G and H at its eastern end tend to be less crowded. Most of the beach’s facilities are located between areas B and F.

These include barbeque pits, hawker centres dishing up a ready supply of tasty meals and water sports. The National Sailing Centre offers both sailing and windsurfing, while fishing is popular from Bedok Jetty in area F. There’s also a large skate park, and children’s playground. Swimming is also possible, with breakwaters giving some protection from the full force of this part of the South China Sea.
