After a long week of work and school, many of us can’t wait to go out and take a stroll at the beach or park for relaxation. If the weather is good and the sun is shining brightly, it is highly recommended for you to head to East Coast Park for some fresh air and fun activities.
Located on the East side of Singapore, this is one part of the town where couples, friends, colleagues, and families can get busy with some activities such as cycling or sailing. However, due to the presence of COVID-19, some activities are limited to the size of the group for safety reasons. In this article, you will learn about 5 (unrestricted) things to do at the beach over the weekend!
It is a must to cycle at East Coast Park while enjoying the breeze! The park has a bicycle path which makes it really suitable for pedaling on two wheels. It's not compulsory that you have to bring your bicycle, as there are many bicycle rental stores for you to rent them at an affordable price for a period of time. Prices usually start from $8 for 2 hours and it also depends on the type of bicycle such as a two-wheeled single bicycle, or four-wheeled family pedicab. Besides cycling, other rental booths also have rollerblades and skateboards for some wheelie adventures (P.s. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, some booths might be temporarily closed to reduce gatherings).
If you are a thalassophile who loves the ocean and the sea, there are plenty of sea activities at East Coast Park. For instance, you can book kayaking, stand up paddleboarding (SUP), or windsurfing sessions, that are suited for all ages and skill levels. For parents who want their kids to learn sailing, there are many outlets that are available for sign ups!
3. Playground Time
The Marine Cove playground is best known for kids to have fun and play around at East Coast Park. The enormous 3,500sqm children’s playground has features that are safe and suitable for all kids to play. Most kids are usually captivated by the sight of the endless array of slides, climbing features, see-saw, and swings.
4. Picnic Date
When it comes to the East Coast Park, it is inevitable to pack up a picnic date with your partner, friend, colleague, or family. Do remember to bring your hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, food, mat, and mozzie spray before heading to the sandy beach. Within the coastline, it is also pretty easy to find the perfect spot to camp for the day.
5. Refuel at a family-friendly restaurant
There are many family-friendly restaurants that are best known for their signature seafood dishes at East Coast Park - even the fussiest eaters would enjoy any options on the menu! Although there are COVID-19 restrictions implemented, you could take note of the huge array of dining options in East Coast Park for future purposes. For instance, there is a huge list of local delicious foods at Laguna East Coast Lagoon Food Village. You do not need to worry about the lack of food options especially when you are at the East side of Singapore!
