3. Tanjong Beach
Located off-the-beaten-track at the southern end of Sentosa's beachfront coastline, this beach is perfect for those seeking some quiet respite from the city. 🤗 During the earlier parts of the weeks, the beach is rather quiet but gets buzzier over the weekend as events like Frisbee matches start taking place! You might even see some familiar beach athletes during your visit. 😜 Try stand-up paddling if you’re looking for a watersport with an intense core workout.
The waters here are relatively calmer when compared to the other Sentosa beaches. Which is why you’ll see many tranquil activities like paddle yoga! We recommend you visit this beach for the most peaceful atmosphere (it’s located further down South from Siloso beach so you most definitely won’t hear the excited screams of zipliners)!
