1. Changi Point Coastal Walk

The Changi Point Coastal Walk is a scenic walking trail found just by the waterfront that nearby residents frequent for their daily leisurely strolls. The fact that this spot serves as the midpoint where lush greenery meets the salty sea breeze is what makes it one of the most tranquil romantic places in Singapore for nature walks.

Couples can start a romantic evening stroll along the boardwalk or take a seat on one of the many benches with a picnic dinner to catch the eventual sunset and watch as the sky and sea are dyed with vibrant hues. All these, along with passing boats and airplanes truly set a dreamy, romantic atmosphere for intimate conversations and quiet moments.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens is a UNESCO World Heritage site with lush scenery with expansive landscapes. As a well-maintained historic garden, couples can expect a peaceful setting amidst nature without setting one foot beyond the city.

Since it’s open from 5am - 12am daily, earlybird couples can opt to have a morning run together amidst the beautiful foliage, or enjoy a romantic stroll around Swan Lake and a photograph or ten with the lake as a stunning backdrop.

You can even plan out a night picnic for a complete peaceful date night experience by packing a scrumptious dinner for two with a refreshing cooler in Montigo’s Ace Bottle to keep it cold for hours. If you’re lucky, you may even get to attend a free concert or event at the Symphony Stage!

Think relaxing watery elements, lush greenery, and themed gardens that remind your bae of that Korean or Chinese drama they’ve recently been binging on. Aside from romantic strolls, you and your other half will also have the chance to enjoy carefree splashing fun with shoes off at the Clusia Cove because romantic moments are also found in cheeky playtime. ;)

You’ve got historical artifacts found around the area, old tombs, and colonial structures that add a touch of enchanting somberness.

While the park’s green beauty is second only to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, it’s still one of the best romantic places in Singapore for curious couples seeking to include a blend of history, mystery, and perhaps even a whiff of the supernatural in their adventurous dates. 

On top of that, you can even train your partner to be the perfect IG boyfriend/girlfriend that captures stunning photographs with the backdrops here like the iconic Fort Canning Tree Tunnel. (You didn’t hear it from us!)

Sentosa Island is home to several beaches with Siloso Beach being one of them. What sets Siloso Beach apart from the rest is how it is actually a tiny body of land just off the coast of Sentosa Island. 

Beach-goers love its hip and happening nature thanks to the myriad of watersports and adrenaline-packed adventures available, fine sand, clear waters, stunning sunset, and vibrant light displays at the sea come nightfall.

Sunset chasing couples will love the romantic atmosphere at Siloso Beach’s quieter spots away from the main hustle and bustle while the beachfront bars and restaurants come alive at night for a lively backdrop. Those seeking a budget-friendly beach day out can always pack a scrumptious picnic candlelit dinner and enjoy it by the beach while admiring the sunset together over intimate conversations after a romantic stroll.

Cycle through the island while enjoying the clean, fresh air here amidst the park’s diverse flora and fauna, or take a brief respite on a bench and try your hand (or eyes) at bird watching, and visit the quiet beaches of Coney Island Park. 

You can also explore the area and search for hidden beaches and even your next hidden private spot that you and your other half can look forward to returning to for quality time away from city life.

What makes this particular bridge unique is how the secluded spots and seated wooden slats that offer comfortable seating are actually part of the bridge. The very structure of the bridge makes it a breezy romantic spot for couples to enjoy panoramic views of the city, harbour, and sunset while enjoying each other’s company over intimate conversations.

If there’s one spot in Singapore where one can capture romantic couple shots with the picturesque sunset, it’s definitely Singapore’s last standing lighthouse, the Raffles Marina Lighthouse. This is one of the rare romantic places in Singapore that exude a charming nautical feel while providing visitors with a panoramic view of the extensive Tuas Second Link bridge that connects Singapore and Malaysia.

This charming spot is best visited just before sunset so you and your significant other can marvel at the twilight skies over a leisurely stroll at the pier, then head to one of the waterfront restaurants found around the lighthouse for relaxed conversations over a romantic dinner date since picnicking is strictly not allowed within the premises. For an even more intimate setting, I’d recommend going during weekdays to skip the crowd.

This fully decked out theme park features a variety of fun attractions based on major Hollywood movies and shows like Jurassic Park, Transformers, and Shrek to name a few.

Even though it’s an incredibly lively and entertaining atmosphere, it’s surprisingly one of the top romantic places in Singapore for couples to truly unwind and experience the very same unbridled joys as kids typically would. 

Couples can enjoy thrilling rides, watch shows and catch the regular street parades or explore different themed areas to capture fun photographs they can then look back on in the future, and devour an arm-sized churro or giant turkey leg together to keep hungry bellies at bay.
