1Seriously S'pore don't have much of a beach, like those in Phuket or Malaysia.
Anyway for a beach out of the city I wud suggest Changi Point, which is not
far from the Airport. There is also a board-walk which you can walk along the
Take the No. 2 bus at the bus stop outside The People's Park Complex in Chinatown
or the bus stop along Victoria St if you are near the Bugis area. Take the bus right
to the end of it's route which is Changi Point (there's a bus terminus there). After
alighting proceed to the ferry terminal (for boats going to an offshore island called
Pulau Ubin, which you can visit if you start off early enough). Next to the ferry
terminal are some open air restaurants, walk pass these restaurants and you will
come to the starting point of the Changi Beach Boardwalk.
There is also a hawker center next to the bus terminus if you want to get some
drinks or food. To go back to the city proceed to the bus stop at the main road
outside the hawker center and shops. Have fun.

4Due to the geography location of singapore island..we have no choice...but ships pass by Singapore too often..so water is polluted.
Therefore all the nature beaches like Pasir Ris (which is my favourite :), Changi, East coast Beach are not as clear and clean as the beaches of Thailand, Malaysia or Vietnam.
Sentosa is beautiful as they have beautiful fine sand. And water is clearer. But it a made-man beach. :p
Anyway...if you going for a dip and the sun...I still feel you can still pay the beaches in Singapore a visit.
Have fun, sun-bathing :)

7Late-June can be a pretty hot and humid time of the year. Sentosa has more ammenities along the beach (hotels, kiosks, etc.). There are also many other interesting places to visit. But it is also far more expensive to spend a day or two there. The prices of everything in that place are inflated because Sentosa is a hot spot for tourists. Besides, the schools are having a month-long term break, which will end on 24 June 07. During the school vacation, Sentosa can get crowded, especially over the weekends.
Changi Point can be a much cheaper option. But it is really out of the way and there is really nothing exceptionally interesting about the place. Besides, I don't recall seeing throngs of people swimming at Changi Point. This could be because there are bumboats operating in that area. Unless you are interested in visiting Pulau Ubin, I would suggest giving Changi Point a miss.
Have fun! :-)
