Palawan Beach (Sentosa Beach)

Palawan Beach is one of several long and broad sand beaches located on the southwest side of Sentosa Island, a short drive or cable car ride from downtown Singapore. It is generally considered the most child and family-friendly.

It is named after Palawan Island. Connected to Palawan beach by a chain-link suspension bridge, the island is said to be the southernmost point of continental Asia. Palawan Beach is shaped like an archer’s bow, and made up of two linked bays. 

Its deep, pale sands slip into calm turquoise waters that are the ideal place for a lazy swim or to try your hand at water sports. Kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and banana boat rides are all available. The HydroDash water park is also within sight.

However, thanks to a wall of greenery hiding much of the hotel accommodation and food options, visitors can almost forget one of the world’s most-densely populated cities is just a short hop away.

Particularly busy on weekends and during the school holiday period, the beach is watched over by lifeguards.
