We spent a day in one of the oldest coastal parks of Singapore! That is Changi Beach Park. With beautiful sandy beaches, blessings of greenery and facilities to entertainment, Changi Beach Park is one of the best places to spend a family day while enjoying the sea views.
In 2017 we travelled more. We travelled to Sri Lanka 2 times within the year and I spent more than one month with the kid while husband returned to Singapore after a short holiday. We also had a trip to Cambodia during the Chinese New Year. In between we visited Johor Bahru, Malaysia several times. But, it seems we didn’t visit much places in Singapore during the year 2017 after our 5 days itinerary around Singapore with kids.
When it is time to plan our Christmas weekend, at first we thought of a overseas trip. But, kid and I were just returned from Sri Lanka after a long holiday. Instead of another oversea trip, we wanted to spend a family day without many activities. A beach day is the perfect idea for such a relaxing time. So, we planned a day at the Changi Beach Park!
I’ve visited Changi Beach Park many times before the kid’s arrival. However this was the first time we visited the beach park with the kid. So, he was really happy to spend a day at the beach with her favourite sand play toys.
Changi Beach Park
Changi Beach park is an ideal location in Singapore for family day, picnic or to experience the sea breeze. It stretches around 3.3km long from Changi Point to Changi Ferry terminal. If you plan a visit to Pulau Ubin which is the last Kampong of Singapore, then you need to get a boat from Changi Ferry Terminal which is near to the Changi Beach Park.
Things to do at the Changi Beach Park
As of in any beach, Changi Beach Park is also a perfect place to spend a relaxing day with fun beach activities. Usually most of the Singapore beach parks such as East Coast Park are crowded during the holidays and weekends. But, this park is not crowded and still it retains the Kampong atmosphere and the mood.
Below are some of the things to do in Changi Beach Park.

We spent a relaxing day at the Changi beach and returned home after having our dinner at a nearby dining place in Changi Village. It was a day worth to pen down as a blog post and kid enjoyed beach activities although there is a children playground which he could play.
