We have shortlisted some places for you in the country where you can enjoy camping in Singapore.
Top 3 Places For Camping In Singapore
Here are the 3 most popular spots for camping in Singapore:
1. Pulau Hantu Besar
If you prefer to be closer to bicycle rental shops and general entertainment, we recommend applying for a permit at Area D. The abundance of tents almost creates a community- make sure you get your permit extra early! If you’re after peace and quiet however, Area G is for you. Located almost at the end of East Coast Park, we heard nothing more than waves hitting the shore.
Pulau Hantu is located to the south of the main island of Singapore, off the Straits of Singapore. Pulau Hantu is actually made up of two islets: Pulau Hantu Besar (Big Ghost Island) and Pulau Hantu Kechil (Little Ghost Island), with a total area of 12.6 hectares. At low tide, it is possible to wade across the shallow lagoon between the two islands, but not at high tide.
2. East Coast Park
Every Singaporean has been to East Coast Park, but few have seen its beauty from dusk till dawn. A home away from home, camp here if you’re looking for the best of both worlds between comfort and adventure. You’ll be fully equipped with barbecue pits, *clean* toilets, and even trusty old Macs for when the pit gets taken over by noob chefs!
Activities at ECP will keep everyone entertained with sandcastle building, in-line skating, prawning and water sports like surfing and kayaking available. It’s also your last chance to see the Big Splash before it disappears for good in October. East Coast Park is a beach park encompassing the planning areas of Marine Parade, Bedok and Tampines, along the southeastern coast of Singapore. It was opened in the 1970s when the government completed reclaiming land off the coast at Katong which extends from Changi to Kallang
3. Pasir Ris Park
A romantic night under the stars. Pasir Ris Park is the perfect choice for camping on the quieter side of the island, yet fuss-free with all the modern facilities you need. Chill in the tent as you watch planes fly past and stay up all night talking about your dreams.
When the day breaks, you can explore a 6-hectare mangrove trail, get lost in a maze garden, learn stand-up paddleboarding, or go for a pony ride at Gallop Stable. This will surely be a special date that you’ll look back with fond memories when you grow old. Likewise, you need to apply for a camping permit online or at an AXS machine at the park. Camping is permitted in areas 1 & 3 right beside the waterfront. While most things are available at your “campsite”, for first-time campers, be sure to read our 1st-hand tips below.
Are you excited about camping in Singapore? This will be one of a kind experience for sure. Plan a trip to Singapore and enjoy some amazing time with your family or friends in the most sporty way.
