Central Beach Bazaar presents a dynamic day-to-night carnival on the beach. It opened on September 15, 2022.

Nestled at the core of Sentosa, this recently established beach attraction offers an immersive experience. It brings captivating visuals, alluring aromas, and enchanting sounds on one sandy stretch. 

It serves as a central hub where families and groups of friends can relish a variety of entertainment and dining options, all conveniently situated in one vibrant locale.

Best Time to Go 

Central Beach Bazaar Sentosa offers something special all day long, so choose a time that aligns with your desired experiences.

If you prefer a quieter visit, consider arriving during weekdays or off-peak hours in the early morning or late afternoon.

If you enjoy basking in the sun, indulging in beachside activities, and exploring local crafts, visiting during the daytime is ideal. You can enjoy the vibrant atmosphere, shop at various stalls, and savour street food.

For a more romantic and visually captivating experience, consider arriving in the late afternoon to witness the sunset over the beach. As the sun dips below the horizon, the transition to evening creates a charming ambience.

If you’re drawn to vibrant lights, live performances, and a different kind of atmosphere, the evening is perfect. 

As night falls, the bazaar transforms with illuminated displays, and the Sentosa Musical Fountain and Sentosa SkyJet performances come to life.
