Love at first bite

If dinner followed by a stroll by the beach sounds like a romantic way to spend the evening, then you should certainly pay a visit to FOC Sentosa for a moonlit dinner by the sea. We’re not going to start waxing lyrical about crashing surf and starry nights, but this Mediterranean beachfront restaurant is certainly a great place to add a dash of Iberian-styled romance to your relationship.
We suggest that you order a bottle of Spanish Vermouth, and deepen your culinary appreciation for Mediterranean flavours with the restaurant’s array of authentic Spanish dishes.

Sights to stir the heart
A Stroll Through Nature
You could buy a bouquet of flowers for your sweetheart, but we believe that a visit to Gardens by the Bay is an equally romantic alternative. With 249 acres of ground, this urban garden space is a medley of stunning architecture and beautiful flora.
We recommend walking arm-in-arm through the Flower Dome, where you’ll be able to explore the world’s largest glass greenhouse, while immersing yourselves in the Mediterranean flowers on display. You won’t be able to pluck any, but these memories will last a lifetime.
Gardens by the Bay. 18 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018953.
Take your relationships to new heights, through new perspectives: go on an aerial exploration of the city via cable car, and enjoy stunning panoramic views of our island. Alternatively, take a ride on the Singapore Flyer, known to be the world’s largest observation wheel.
Both venues offer special packages for couples such as dining in a private cabin on the cable car, or a Moet & Chandon Champagne Flight on the Singapore Flyer.
Singapore Cable Car at Keppel Bay Tower. Tower 2, 1 Harbourfront Ave, Singapore 098632.
Singapore Flyer. 30 Raffles Avenue, Singapore 039803.
Escape the bustle of the city with your partner on the idyllic island sanctuary of Pulau Ubin. A perfect place of reprieve for nature-loving couples to unwind, the island is home to old kampongs (villages), granite quarries, lush tropical forests and abundant wildlife.
Active couples of all ages with a mutual love for exploration should rent a tandem bicycle and discover the island together; the numerous cycling trails around Pulau Ubin lend themselves to adventures off the beaten path.
