Sentosa Siloso Beach is the proposed venue for the Beach Volleyball and Beach Wrestling competition events of the Singapore Youth Olympic Games in 2010. The beach is situated on the resort island of Sentosa, just off the Southern coast of Singapore and a bridge connects the island by car, bus and light rail train services to the mainland.
At around 13 minutes travelling time from the Youth Olympic Village, it is hard to imagine that there would be such a nice island resort in such close proximity to the city centre.
The Sentosa Siloso Beach hosted the Swatch-FIVB Beach volleyball championships in May 2007, the first time Singapore hosted an event from the Beach Volleyball World Tour. Athletes
from all over the world competed to qualify for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and US$ 200,000 in prize money. The tournament attracted hundreds of fans to the island on a daily basis.
Sentosa Siloso Beach is home to Singapore’s beach sports enthusiasts, who gather here most weekends to participate in casual and competitive games. When the sun sets, the sporty atmosphere gives way to a relaxing and romantic dining and entertainment ambience with its al fresco restaurants, cafes and lounges.
