Synopsis
A beautiful rustic beach with much to see and comb.

How much time you will need: Takes about 1 to 2 hours to walk the entire stretch of it and back.

What we thought of it: Great place to unwind, take in the sea breeze and watch the boats go by and the planes land or take off.

Review
Changi Beach Park is a shady, picturesque park, scattered with park benches, shelters and barbecue pits.

It is a great place to spend the day to unwind. A 3-km jogging/cycling track also makes it an attractive place for avid cyclists.
There are 2 main sections to Changi Beach: From Changi Point to the Cafhi Jetty and from the jetty to the Changi Ferry Terminal.
The first section is popular with families, picnickers and campers. Changi Point is near the river mouth, where the boats to Pulau Ubin and Pengerang (in Johore, Malaysia) come and go. It is also close to Changi Village, making it conveniently accessible. Hence, it does tend to get crowded on weekends and public holidays. If you enjoy watching boats come and go, this is the spot to be. It's also a popular fishing spot.
Going further along the coastal park, you'll find a good place for kids where there's a nice stretch of beach and a playground nearby. Towards the end of the section is a great spot for watching the large 747 planes take off or land. Again, fishing enthusiasts are a common sight here too.
The next section is a nature lover's and fisherman's paradise. During low-tides, you'll find much marine life. Hermit crabs are a common sight. Sieve gently through the sand and you'll find shellfish. Occasionally, you'll find barrels of mussels broken away from nearby kelongs (floating fish farms). But beware of jelly fish - there are seasons when there's plenty in the sea. Also beware of sandflies - they can leave a nasty itch.
Though less accessible, this section is also popular with families who come for a picnic or barbeque. Shaded by casuarina trees, it is a scenic and attractive place. During the northeast monsoon (October to March), this place becomes a windsurfers’ haunt. In recent times, kiteboarding has taken off and replaced windsurfing as a common sight. It is quite fascinating to watch the kiteboarders, especially when they do an aerial jump.

Tips
There are three basic changing and cold-shower (indoor and outdoor) rooms – one at the first section nearer Changi Point, one at the beginning of the second section and the last one at the end near the Changi Ferry Terminal. So be prepared for distance between them and the starkness of facilities.

Although the seaside is safe for kids, do keep a close eye on them.

Things to Bring
Bring drinking water - there is nowhere to buy drinks along the beach.

Bring swim-wear. There are changing rooms and showers at several places though they may be somewhat basic.

Opening Times
Opening times: Open all the time.

How to Get There
By Taxi - The fastest and easiest way to get there. Ask the taxi driver to let you alight at Changi Beach. Alternatively, you can alight at Changi Village near the jetty and cross over the pedestrian footbridge to the beach.

By Bus - Take SBS bus numbers 2, 29, 59 and 109 to Changi Village and head towards the river to cross the pedestrian footbridge to the park. Alternatively, you can take SBS bus numbers 9, 19 and 89 and alight anywhere along Nicoll Drive.
