Interested in getting a tan in Singapore? Well, where else do you head other than the beaches and waterfront areas?
In this article, we explore five areas where you can get maximum exposure to the sun and sea.
Besides the parks in the East Coast and West Coast, you can also check out The Botanic Gardens, Marina Bay, as well as the outlying island of Sentosa.
East Coast Park
A good place to go is East Coast Park in the eastern side of Singapore. You can cycle, go swimming or just stroll down the beach. East Coast Park is one of the most popular beach destinations in Singapore and will show you the vibrant side of Singapore beach life.
West Coast Park
West Coast Park is another gem tucked in the corner of the island. Its quieter than East Coast Park and has a nice playground where you can bring the kids and family for a nice afternoon picnic.
The Botanic Gardens
If greenery and nature is more up your alley, then you definitely have to check out the Botanic Gardens. The lush greens of the gardens contain some of the most exotic flora in the city and you can easily lay out a canvas for a picnic. Many expatriate families come here during weekends to wind down.

Marina Bay is due for a revamp in a few years, when the Singapore Integrated Resort (IR) comes up. For now, its still a favorite area where you can do lots of waterfront activities. Many folks go there for an afternoon cruise along the Singapore River.
Of course, there’s that gem of Singapore called Sentosa. Situated ten minutes by ferry off the southern coast of the island, Sentosa has a very happening beach area called Siloso beach. You can check out the little beach clubs and have a drink or two if you like.
