Beaches of Singapore

Although a nation composed of islands, the physical state and extent of Singapore's beaches today pales in comparison to their proliferation and quality two centuries ago. Rapid urbanisation and land use pressures necessitated the disappearance of most of these natural beaches as a result of land reclamation.

Today, most of the beaches still in existence are man-made, formed at the edges of newly reclaimed land, the longest being the one along the East Coast Park. One of the oldest naturally existing stretches of beach is at the northern end of Changi Beach.
