East Coast Park information

Lonely Planet review

This 15km stretch of seafront park is where Singaporeans come to swim, windsurf, wakeboard, kayak, picnic, bicycle, rollerblade, skateboard, and, of course, eat. You'll find swaying coconut palms, patches of bushland, a lagoon, sea sports clubs, and some excellent eateries.

Renting a bike from kiosks like CycleMax , enjoying the sea breezes, watching the veritable city of container ships out in the strait, and capping it all off with a beachfront meal is one of the most pleasant ways to spend a Singapore afternoon.

East Coast Park starts at the end of Tanjong Katong Rd in Katong and ends at the National Sailing Centre in Bedok, which is actually closer to the Tanah Merah MRT station. It's connected to Changi Beach Park by the Coastal Park Connector Network (PCN), an 8km park connector running along Changi Coast Rd, beside the airport runway. At the western end of the park, the bicycle track continues right through to Katong, ending at the Kallang River.

On weekends only, bus 401 from Bedok Bus Interchange, outside Bedok MRT, takes you directly to East Coast Park. On weekdays, take bus 197 from Bedok and stop along Marine Pde Rd (ask the bus driver where to get off). Walk 250m south to an underpass, which will take you into the park.
