Weekend By the Sea: East Coast Park, Labrador Nature Reserve and Sentosa Beach, Singapore

There were weekends I holed up inside my room binge watching TV series and there were days where I long for nothing but sunshine and when those days strike I knew exactly where to go in Singapore.

The East Coast Park is synonymous to an active weekend and my personal favorite thing to do is rent a bike and cycle the 15km stretch.

Sunshine, sea breeze and that incomparable bliss of cycling which pretty much reminded me of childhood is what exactly I look forward at East Coast Park, apart from a glimpse of somewhat properly arranged tankers across the sea.

East Coast Park can be very crowded specifically on long holiday weekends where locals and tourists alike flock together whether to setup an overnight tent or a picnic mat, whether they are rollerblading or enjoying one of the water venture sports.

Apart from East Coast Park another good place to go for an afternoon walk with a sea view is Labrador Nature Reserve or commonly called as Labrador Park.

The only rocky sea-cliff on the main island of Singapore, Labrador Park offers more than a rich biodiversity, it is a place to combine jogging with a bit of history by passing tunnels and forts reminiscent of British military rule era.

Labrador Park is less frequented by tourists and generally visited by residents of surrounding area, thus making it less crowded and more quieter alternative.

To complete the list, there is always Sentosa’s reclaimed 2km beach manned by lifeguard patrols.

Located at the southern coast of Singapore, the beach area is divided into three section- the party shore of Siloso Beach, the secluded Tanjong Beach and the family friendly Palawan Beach.

If you want to set put into southernmost point of Continental Asia, then cross the suspension bridge linking Palawan Beach to a small islet off the coast.
