Changi Beach Park, Singapore Overview

Changi Beach Park is one of the oldest coastal parks in Singapore, situated at the northern tip of Changi in the eastern region of the country. One of the few places in the city-state to retainĀ the village or 'kampong' ambience from the 60s and 70s, the beach park is never overcrowded, with a calm environ - a contrast to the busy and cosmopolitan nature of urban Singapore. Lined by a palm-fringed strip of turquoise water and barbecue pits, Changi Beach Park is a much-visited place for a picnic, swimming and barbecues. It is also a popular overnight family picnic spot, especially on the weekends.

Spread across 28 hectares, the park is host to a variety of dense trees such as Casuarinas, Kicars and Sepetirs, along with some delectable sea-facing restaurants and bounded by two playgrounds. Changi Beach Park stretches from Changi Point to Changi Ferry Terminal and 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. Due to its close proximity to the Changi International Airport, planes can be spotted, flying to and fro. The coastal park is a great sunset and sunrise viewing point - sunrise can be eyed from SAF Changi Ferry Terminal towards the eastern end, while sunset can be relished from Changi Point.
