Sentosa Island is Singapore’s favourite leisure destination with exciting attractions, golden beaches, luxe retreats and the country’s first integrated resort.
Gone are the days when the island was a humble fishing village, known as Pulau Belakang Mati or ‘Island of Death from Behind’ in Malay. Because of its strategic location, it even served as a British military fortress up till World War II.
Today, Sentosa is home to renowned golf courses, a yachting marina and luxurious residences, and is also a holiday destination for Singaporeans and tourists alike. Nature buffs, history fans, spa-goers, adventure junkies – there’s something for everyone.
Beach lovers especially will love the island’s 3.2km stretch of sandy beaches, namely Siloso Beach, Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach. Sip cocktails with your feet nestled in warm golden sand, flex your muscles with a game of beach volleyball or get wet riding some waves.
