Changi beach is one of the oldest beaches in Singapore, one of the few places in the city-state to retain the village or 'kampong' ambience from the 60s and 70s. The beach water is bluish white and stretches for about 3.3 km along the coast. It is a famous spot for the locals to spend time with their families. Many people enjoy cycling and skating across the area. The beach is never overcrowded, giving a much-needed feeling of peace to its visitors, a contrast to the busy and cosmopolitan nature of urban Singapore. Changi Beach Park is one of the locations identified by Singaporean authorities as part of the Seahorse Monitoring Project, a project initiated to monitor the seahorse and pipefish population.
Changi beach was a war zone in the World War Two, which has led to rumours of the beach beaing haunted. Spread across 28 hectares, the park is host to a variety of dense trees such as Casuarinas, Kicars and Sepetirs, sea-facing restaurants, BBQ grills, picnic spots and more. The beach stretches from Changi Point to Changi Ferry Terminal. The coast is lined up with rows of trees and a grassy expanse, making it a good picnic spot. Due to its close proximity to the Changi International Airport, you will occassionally see planes flying to and fro above your head.
