A National Heritage Site due to a wartime history most would probably like to forget, Punggol Beach is located on Singapore’s northern shores. Quieter than many of the nation’s other beaches, it faces out towards the island of Pulau Ubin and the Straits of Johor, which separate Singapore from Malaysia.
Backed by verdant foliage dissected by a raised stepped promenade, its soft pale sands have a tropical vibe. They are studded with large rounded boulders which make Punggol Beach a popular subject with photographers.
There’s also a small wooden jetty for those who want to try their luck catching barramundi and other local fish species.
Facilities include a children’s playground and public toilets. Several well-regarded seafood restaurants are located at Punggol Point, where you’ll also find a stop on the city-state’s MRT mass transit system.
- Good fishing
