Singapore's first urban beach to pop up at Marina Bay

The beach can hold up to about 250 people, together with 30 deck chairs and one beach bar. It will be located at The Promontory@Marina Bay from Jun 13 to 14.



SINGAPORE: The Republic’s first pop-up urban beach will be appearing in the heart of Marina Bay next month, complete with a pool, palm trees and a beach bar, said DBS Bank on Wednesday (May 6).

The beach, measuring 50-by-50 metres, will also include a pool where activities such as stand-up paddling and yoga will take place, it added in the press release.

DBS said creating a man-made beach will be “no mean feat” - 28,000kg of sand will be brought in and that is expected to take up to 300 man-hours. The beach can hold up to about 250 people, together with 30 deck chairs and one beach bar.

“The sand will be laid onto a protective ground sheet that covers the entire area of the beach. A raised edge will help to contain the sand, and grass lining the perimeter of the beach will ensure that the sand remains within the beach’s boundaries,” the bank said.

Karen McGregor, Senior Vice President of Group Strategic Marketing and Communications at DBS said: “With this year being Singapore’s Jubilee year, and having the 28th SEA Games Traditional Boat (Dragon boat) and Sailing races take place in conjunction with the DBS Marina Regatta, we wanted to celebrate this landmark occasion by igniting the bay with even more transformative experiences.”

In addition to SEA Games Sailing races, the DBS Marina Regatta - an annual water sports festival - will also see an estimated 2,500 paddlers competing at across nine categories.

The beach will be located at The Promontory@Marina Bay from Jun 13 to 14.
