Palawan Beach, Singapore Overview

The gorgeous Palawan Beach on Sentosa Island is one of the best family beaches in Singapore with fine white sand, the clear blue water and the warm, cosy atmosphere. Out of the three beaches in Sentosa - Siloso, Tanjong and Palawan - the latter is often considered to be the most relaxing and is the only one that is kid-friendly. This exotic beach was originally a reef, referred to as the Serembu Palawan. However, after land reclamation, it was renamed as Pulau Palawan, or simply, Palawan. Apart from being a swimmer's paradise, the scenic Palawan Beach is home to a variety of places ideal for children and adults.

The name "Palawan" was most probably derived from the Malay word "Pahlwan", which means warrior. The Palawan Beach grants access to a suspension bridge which connects it with the southernmost tip of Continental Asia. The panoramic view of the Sentosa Island offered by the two viewing towers at this spectacular beach is absolutely breathtaking. The beach bars and shacks offer drinks and food from mid-morning to late evenings, serving as a great place to enjoy this scenic beach from. There are several shops around the Palawan Beach area that sell fascinating trinkets, the perfect way to commemorate the trip to this coastal utopia.
