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...

Do you want to swim at the self proclaimed southernmost point of continental Asia? Consider swimming from Palawan Beach, go under the suspension bridge to the tiny island, then swim to the other end of Palawan beach. It is about 1.2km in distance. Water is clean enough.

we found sentosa beaches not to be the cleanest. I am surprised that they do not have litter collectors patrolling the beaches. I'm sure it would cost the island much, and the cleanliness is kind of ruining the reputation for the beach life.

Title says much. One thing I didn't like though was that, just like the other 2 Sentosa beaches, the beach was sheltered so there were no waves coming in from the ocean. This makes the beach feel "artificial" and that's not very good. Good for relaxation, yet the sand is hot without a blanket.

Sand is nice for a picnic. Water doesn't look very inviting as you can see tankers in the water close by and the water is ocmpletely flat.

Passed by to see how it is (recommended by a hotel concierge) it is a wonderful beach near by the water park and not far from sentosa's good attractions (Imbiah lookout), but all it lakes is shades and sun beds. At sunset you will view the best romantic view ever. Free entree ofcourse

Located in the southern side of Sentosa, this beach is filled with beachgoers which enjoy the sun. Use the free volleyballs courts, the sea and the toilets at no expenses. There are also many interesting things to see on the beach
