What have you planned for this weekend? Looking for a place where you can relax, and the children can burn off some steam? Then check out our list of restaurants with indoor playgrounds or our beachfront restaurants.
The beach is a fantastic place for the family! All that sun, sea and sand is sure to bring back some of that resort feel, not to mention the ample space for the children to use their boundless energy. You can build sand castles, fly a kite, dip in the sea, and play with a Frisbee or beach ball with your kids.
If the kids are young, the beach is a great sensory playground. With the older kids, you can enjoy the fresh sea-air and relax as you watch over them.
Best of all, most of the beach activities these days aren’t confined to sand activities. You can cycle, roller-blade or run along the many footpaths near the beaches. Our National Parks Board had also very kindly set up many public facilities (toilets and showers) along the beach front to allow you to wash off the sand or freshen up before heading out to dinner.
Here are some of our favourite hang-outs at the beach.
1. Bistro at Changi (International)
Bistro @ Changi is an alfresco café serving light snacks and beverages for cyclists. It is located at the Changi Pitstop.
