The southernmost of Sentosa Island’s three beaches, Tanjong Beach hosts sleepy vacationers beneath its shady palms. Bookended by breakwaters where you’ll often spot locals fishing, its double crescent of white sand often sports kids building sand castles while families splash together in its protected cove.
Connected to its northerly neighbors, Siloso and Palawan Beaches, by an inland walkway, Tanjong stretch is quieter and less crowded. Here, there are more leafy trees than bars and restaurants. Tanjong Beach Club, the beach’s sole commercial enterprise, has a right-off-the-sand pool, lounge chairs, cabanas, bar and restaurant. At night DJs spin tunes that keep the party going late.
Tanjong Beach on Sentosa Island is connected to the mainland via driving road, the Sentosa Express from the VivoCity shopping mall (get off at the Beach Station), and cable car (Mount Faber Line to Sentosa Station). For the latter two, you’ll need to continue on via the Sentosa Beach Tram’s blue line to Tanjong. Tanjong Beach Club is open from 11am. Beyond the bar, facilities are basic (porta-potty and a few freshwater showers).
