There's no furtastic place to hang with your furry pals than at the beach, which Sentosa has an abundant of. While Sentosa beaches are pet-friendly, it is also open to everyone. So please be considerate when bringing your pets along.
We recommend heading to Tanjong Beach as well as the eastern end of Palawan Beach (near FOC Sentosa) where there are lots of space. Sentosa does require dogs to be leashed at all times.
HOT TIP: Get to the beach EARLY. The best time to swim and relax on the sand is from 9am-11am; before the crowd arrives, and before it gets too hot for your furkid.
The perfect day would not be complete without a delicious meal. What's better than a restaurant with good food than a restaurant with good food and is pet-friendly? Places such as Tanjong Beach Club, FOC Sentosa, Coastes and Ola Beach Club will welcome your pup and provide bowls of drinking water too.
Stand-up doggy paddleboard
Stand-up Paddling is one of the few water sports you can play with your pet on the water! This activity requires you to balance on an oversized board while standing up as you paddle your way across the calm waters and feel the gentle breeze brush against your skin. This hybrid between canoeing and surfing brings benefits such as balance training, body sculpting and many more! Your dog will surely love to spend the day out in the sea, not to mention the boost in their confidence in water; can they love you more than they already do?
You can rent a paddleboard from Ola Beach Club, where they provide other water sports activities too, or sign up for stand-up paddle classes with Stand-up Paddle (SUP) School located at Tanjong Beach.
