10 Places For Water Sports in Singapore: Kayaking, Stand up Paddling, and More!

Many of these places are affordable, too!

While lamenting about the perpetual summer in Singapore, we’ve gotta admit that engaging in water sports certainly makes for a fun escape from the heat! 

Granted, most of us would associate water sports with kayaking and canoeing. However, many others have gained popularity in recent years too, such as stand up paddling, wakeboarding, windsurfing, and more! 

On that note, we’ve rounded up some of the best places in Singapore for water sports. Best of all, many of these places are affordable, too.
