You do not have to lug half of your belongings to travel overseas just to catch a breather. A fun and affordable getaway is available right here along the pristine beaches by our parks. Gather a few friends or family members and spend a day or two at the park. Get close to nature and soak in that warm, relaxing atmosphere.
Have fun setting up a tent for the night's stay. Upon the successful set-up, you can choose from a wide variety of activities to do for the day. Rent a bicycle or a pair of inline skates for an idyllic exploration around the park. Dig out your camera and snap some shots for memories' sake. Let out your creative juices and mould sandcastles on the beach. Fly a kite high up into the sky or simply laze around on a mat, reading your favorite novel, while nibbling on snacks. In the evening, treat your growling stomachs to a delectable meal in one of the many Food & Beverage outlets around the vicinity. Or you may even want to host a barbeque session at the pit and be the chef of the night! Take pleasure in the purchasing of ingredients, the marinating of meat, the skewering of seafood and finally, the satisfying tastes of your own-cooked food.
When night comes, the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks will lull you to a pleasant sleep. As the saying goes, 'the early bird gets the worms'. Rise and shine to the one of the most amazing and truly beautiful sights of nature - sunrise. Lose yourself in the glorious beauty of the radiant sun rising above the horizon against the glistening waters reflecting its bright neon glows.
