Singapore is famous for its staggering manmade developments that have quickly turned what was just a small jungle island into a sprawling metropolis in just a matter of decades. Its beaches are no exception; the pristine white sands you see today on Sentosa’s coast are all the result of human intervention. Although technically manmade, there is nothing fake about the soft sand, which is actually imported from nearby Malaysia.
Sentosa island boasts 3.2km of white stuff, and visitors can find plenty to do, such as lounging at one of the various beach bars, splashing around in the shallow warm sea, or just finding a quiet spot underneath a palm tree with a good book for the afternoon. For the best spots, head to Tanjong, Palawan, or Siloso Beach.
