COVID-19 has had an impact on the lives of many people around the world. From making adjustments to working from home to adapting business models to survive, Singapore is now seeing a by-reservation-only visit to Sentosa’s beaches during the peak periods.
Visitors required to book their slots online
The new rule will kick in from Oct 17. It is applicable to visits on peak periods such as the weekends and public holidays. Beachgoers to Sentosa’s Tanjong, Palawan, and Siloso beaches can get a spot by heading to sentosa.com.sg/beachreservations to place a booking.
Booking officially starts from Oct 10 and you may place a reservation up to 7 days before your intended day of the visit.

Beaches divided into seven zones

Part of COVID-19 safety and crowd management measures
Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) shared that the new move came after crowds and queues were observed during peak periods.
As such, this new system will give the public peace of mind by reducing queues at the beaches. At the same time, allowing everyone to keep up with safe distancing.
“The launch of a reservation-only beach entry during peak periods will help us ensure that Sentosa remains safe for all guests and staff,” said SDC CEO Thien Kwee Eng.
“We also seek the cooperation of our guests to continue being socially responsible so that Sentosa continues to be a place where all visitors will have an enjoyable experience.”
