East Coast Beach (Part 1-Shipping Route)

East Coast Beach is the longest and most popular beach in Singapore while the beaches in Sentosa is the next popular. Over at East Coast Beach, there are many great food stalls, seafood restaurants, different culture restaurants, water sport activities, BBQ, cycling and rollerblading. There are even chalets for holiday makers too.

The beach over here is so much cleaner than Pasir Ris. Though we can view the shipping route from the beach, it is not that polluted at this beach cause much efforts are done to keep this popular beach clean. At least I can see nice clean sand on this beach.....lol

The ships are further away but looked near cause I zoom on them. We used to be the busiest port in the world but that title has since gone to Shanghai. For more info. click here
Another closer look at these huge ships carrying cargos. The ships are not only passing here, they stopped here to refuel, stock up on food and water and ship repairs. These means good economy for us. I think we prefer good economy than nice beaches, we can alway visit nearby Australia for their nice beaches provided the sharks dont get to us first....lol

I wonder what's with the people and the pleasure to polute... in Romania it's crazy what they do, and nobody takes any measures against.
