Escape from the city’s hustle and bustle by getting closer to nature at these recommended spots.
If there’s one place in Singapore that’s synonymous with outdoor revelry, it’s East Coast Park, where some seven million locals and tourists flock to for the variety of sporting, entertainment and dining attractions.
Along this 15-kiliometre stretch of beach, you’ll find hordes of cyclists and roller bladers enjoying the sun and sea breeze, while cable skiing and water sports are on offer for those who prefer wetter pursuits.
The action goes up several notches at the world-class Xtreme SkatePark, a place where adrenaline junkies can get their fix.
It’s a great place to just sit back and relax too, with no shortage of restaurants, bars and cafes along the beaches to sip on a cocktail or grab a bite. Keep it simple and have a picnic with family and friends by the beach under the swaying coconut palms and Casuarinas.
Whatever you choose to do, there’s no better way to end the day here than with hearty local fare at the East Coast Food Lagoon, where you can feast on local favourites like satay and barbecued chicken wings right on the beach.
The diverse lifestyle attractions available at East Coast Park makes this one of Singapore’s most exciting attractions.
