The Sister Islands, and their beaches, are two of Singapore’s southern most islands, and sport crystal clear waters, excellent for snorkeling. There is also the Sister Islands Marine Park, where you can try scuba diving or other activities.

This might not be one of the most pristine beaches in Singapore, but it makes up for it with lots of options for water sports and local shops. There is also a continuous night life here, so get your drinks ready.
3. Changi Beach Park
Changi Beach is a popular outing for friends and family, and is generally only known by locals. This is probably because Changi Park is slightly off the grid, but the journey is worth it.

4. East Coast Park
This park is one of the more popular locations for local families, with or without kids, to just come and hang out in the sand. Its a favorite spot for weekend barbeques and picnics, as well as cycling and roller-skating.
You will probably see a lot of sunset beach runners, as its a nice cool seaside jog. If you have kids, you can take them to the playground at Marine Cove, or out for some nice dining around Parkland Green.
