In the old days Changi was the de facto go-to beach, until 1970s when land fill extended the southern coast of Singapore and a new man-made beach, East Coast Park spanning 15 km long was created.

With the development of the massive Changi International Airport, Changi beach areas has also been sequested.

Changi Beach toady is a shadow of its former self. A 3km long swathe, the beach runs along Changi Coast Road from Changi Ferry Termoinal at one end and ends across Changi River, Sungei Changi.

Beach is situated very close to the 2 airports’ runways, you can observe planes coming in over the water then skimming the trees to land at the runway.

Airplane enthusiasts can watch incoming airplanes flying low over Changi beach, every 2 minutes, perfect for that sunset Instagram shot!

Ever questioned which direction the plane comes in? Is there a ‘right’ direction? Planes always take off and land into a headwind. At Changi, it depends on the prevailing time of year.

October to February is the North East Monsoon and planes will usually take off heading north. However, the direction can always change depending on the local weather.
