The beach is honestly not the greatest. It is reasonably clean, but it is narrow (especially at high tide) with a lot of trees. Forget about self-launching your kite here; you will need an assistant, or be comfortable drift-launching in deep water (not recommended). This is not an ideal place for beginners.

Extra information

Rules
Zones

Changi beach is now a well-established kiteboarding area where kiteboarding and windsurfing is tolerated by the authorities, but please use common sense and respect for others to ensure that things stay that way. Please stay reasonably close to the beach and do not ride out into the commercial shipping lane. Also, stay away from the ferry terminal near the south end of the beach, and keep clear of the upwind jetty at the north end of the beach. Doing so will also keep you well clear of the flightpath for the nearby Changi airport Runway I.

Nightlife

Singapore is a major international city. The Changi area is not the most happening, but the rest of the city is only 20-30 minutes away by taxi, car, or public transport.
