This is one of the three beaches in Sentosa. I liked it most because it looked very natural and serene (unlike Siloso beach which seemed to be more crowded and was facing ships jetty-a big turn off). It is a clean sandy stretch lined with trees and green. There were quite a few people there; it was heavenly for chilling... More

This beach is pretty average. It's average. No waves. No much to do unless you like building sand castles. With average sand. So average. So so average. Just really, I don't know.... average.

Singapore's Sentosa today is a popular place, but we discovered Palawan beach which is away from the busy areas and found it to be a great spot to just walk around and see what Sentosa was like before it became today's tourist attraction. (My wife recalled swimming there 40 years ago before anything was developed.) Billed as 'the southernmost point... More

This is a small beach. Sand was not fine, water was not clear and generaslly not well maintained. Rather off putting esp with tankers sailing by.

Baech is OK, water quality can vary, the sand is fine. Facilities around but limited and the highlight is the bridge over to the lookout and the southern most point of continental asia. There should be a path connecting the bridge back to the main path overwise very hard to get a pram or young kids through the sand. Look... More

We enjoyed our time here sooo much. Stayed the whole day and it felt like only an hour. Sentosa beach lets you absolutely forget you are so close to a major City. It is maybe the best way to spend a day in Singapore. Just do not go on the weekend since the island is very crowded then

The beach was ok. We didn't swim because the water looks dirty, but the kids had fun playing with sand.

The beach was okay, but the water was dirty and I did not feel comfortable to swim in there. For me it was okay to visit it once but i won't come here again.

There are very few places in Singapore where one can find a clean strip of beach. Palawan Beach is one of these places. Although the sight of cargo ships in the distance is rather unnerving (makes one wonder how clean the water really is... thus, the 4 stars), the beach itself is litter free, with tons of shaded areas to...
