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.
