Beaches in Singapore are generally well-known for one thing: being man-made! Whilst you can find some stretches of the white stuff that are 100 per cent genuine, most of the more picturesque beaches in Singapore have all been built using imported sand from neighbouring Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Cambodia.
The country has undergone vast development over the last half a century or so, and most of the original beaches were wiped out by the construction of the harbour front and overall urbanisation of the island. Nowadays, most of the best beaches in Singapore can be found on Sentosa Island, which can be reached via cable car, sky-train, car or even on foot. Here is your guide to all the beaches in Singapore, Sentosa Island and around.
