Kick off your getaway in Sentosa with the Palawan Pirate Ship as your very first stop! Previously known as the Port of Lost Wonder, it has reopened as the newly revamped Palawan Pirate Ship. A water play area complete with slides and mini water fountains, this is one place that the little ones are going to thoroughly enjoy. And the best part? Admission is free of charge, so stay as long as you like! Fair warning though: the kids might be reluctant to leave after enjoying themselves so much.

Palawan Beach

Next up, it’s time for the beach! Sentosa has three beaches for you to choose from – Siloso Beach, Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach – with Palawan being the most family-friendly one. Here, you don’t have to worry about the kids ever getting bored as there are plenty of things you can do as a family. Build sandcastles together, splash around in the sea, or have a picnic lunch right on the beach. Just don’t forget to pack sunblock, as you don’t want to risk getting badly sunburnt while you’re out having fun (the Singapore sun can get quite relentless in the afternoons)!

Dinner at Flame

After a whole day of being out in the sun, there’s no better way to replenish all that energy with a hearty roast dinner! Head over to Flame – Singapore’s first beach rotisserie – where you can dine right by the beach, with the serene backdrop of the waves crashing onto the shore as your dinner view. And if you time your dinner to coincide with sunset, it will definitely be an unforgettable experience. From sharing platters to burgers and grilled mains, Flame has a wide menu selection that is bound to satisfy the entire family. You might even be able to get in some extra quality time with your partner, by allowing the kids to play on the beach after they’re done with their food!

Skyline Luge Sentosa

If your family isn’t ready to call it a night after dinner, don’t fret! At Skyline Luge Sentosa, you can race down the Luge tracks even after night falls. With neon lights illuminating the race tracks, you can now experience riding the Luge at night – an exhilarating experience that is completely different from riding it in the day! Sentosa’s Night Luge also happens to be the first of its kind in the world, which means… You won’t be able to get this thrilling experience anywhere else. So, it’s time to grab those helmets and get ready to go zooming down those tracks at super speed! Who says the fun stops after the sun goes down?

Day 2:

Universal Studios Singapore

No Sentosa experience is complete without a stop at Universal Studios Singapore, a truly iconic attraction! Featuring seven themed zones with 24 different attractions, it boasts the title of being Southeast Asia’s very first and only Universal Studios theme park. On top of the super fun rides will make the kids want to go on them again and again, get the kids to look out for their favourite characters, because there’s going to be plenty of photo opportunities as you navigate your way through the park. Here’s an extra tip: If you’re visiting on a weekend and are worried about having to wait in long lines, purchase Express Passes to skip all the queues!

With such a spectacular show to keep the family entertained, there’s no better way to end the night with a perfect bang!

Breakfast at Slappy Cakes

Begin your final morning in Sentosa with a yummy breakfast at Slappy Cakes! Unlike most pancake restaurants, Slappy Cakes gives their customers full control over how they like their pancakes. Each table has a built-in griddle where you can make your own pancakes – just pick a batter, your fixings, add your favourite toppings and you’ll be munching down your very own creation in no time. This is the ultimate family-friendly dining spot that mashes good food and fun in one experience, so we certainly wouldn’t be surprised if the kids constantly ask to be taken back here!

You might know Singapore’s most iconic landmark, the Merlion, but do you know what it actually stands for? There are a few Merlion statues in Singapore, but the Sentosa Merlion is unlike any of the other Merlions you can find in Singapore. Standing at a whopping 37 metres tall, the Sentosa Merlion overlooks Singapore’s Central Business District and Sentosa island, and is regarded as a guardian of prosperity. Here, you can learn about the urban myth surrounding the Merlion, as well as take home your very own souvenir from Singapore’s guardian of prosperity – a gold prosperity coin!
