Singapore isn't exactly known for its beaches, but it does have them and they are quite popular with the locals. There are two main areas:
- East Coast Park
- Sprawling along the airport parkway between the airport and the central business district, the East Coast Park is probably the favorite outdoor hangout for Singaporeans. You can rent equipment at several spots for canoeing, wind surfing, cycling and roller blading in case you get board of lying on the beach. The beach can be a little windblown and most of the time the horizon is cluttered with many ships waiting to get into Singapore's busy port.
- In addition to its many other attractions, Sentosa has some fine beaches on its ocean side which are carefully maintained, with imported sand no less.
