We Singaporeans love food, and oh do we love our barbecues! It’s common to see big groups booking out chalets just to enjoy some grilled meat or roasted marshmallows.  If you don’t want to spend over $200 a night booking out a chalet and want a fuss-free evening by the grill, here’s 5 BBQ spots you should book this weekend!

East Coast Park

It would be a crime not to start off the list with the legendary East Coast Park. Many Singaporeans have grown up in this scenic park stretching over 15km. If you want to whip up an outdoor feast, there are over 80 BBQ pits located in areas B – G of this park alone. Be filled with nostalgia as you sizzle up delicious food! If the barbecued food fails to fill your tummy, there are plenty of restaurants nearby for a second round!

Rent a BBQ Pit at East Coast Park from NParks for $16. You are allowed to use the BBQ pit from 12pm on the day of permit to 4am the following day on the day of booking.

Labrador Park

Labrador Nature Reserve has something for everyone – forest trails for nature lovers, a gorgeous beachfront for those who value tranquility and plenty of genuine World War II relics for history buffs. The best part is you can enjoy all of this while barbequing your evening away! NParks manages the 7 BBQ pits located within Area A of the park.

Fun fact: The barbecue pits at Labrador all have unique names to commemorate a specific war battery such as the Connaught Battery and Pasir Laba Battery. 

Labrador Nature Reserve is also part of the Southern Ridges, which connects to other scenic parks such as the Mount Faber Park. Find out more about how you can explore the Southern Ridges here.

Book a BBQ Pit at Labrador Nature Park (Promenade) for $12 from NParks.

BBQ Pits @ SAFRA

SAFRA formed in 1972 to boost the morale of National Servicemen and has become a network of recreation clubs across the island. 5 of its 6 clubs also offer BBQ pits for rent! Although much pricier than the BBQ pits managed by NParks, having your next BBQ party here means you can enjoy many activities under one roof! The best part? If you book a BBQ Pit at SAFRA Jurong, you can pay extra to ensure pool access for all your guests! Pool party with a barbecue afterwards? Sign me up!

Prices start at $21.40 for BBQ Pit rental depending on the time and venue. Only SAFRA members are allowed to book a pit. Click here for more information on the prices.


Sembawang Park

A lot of us tend to think that Sembawang is an “ulu” place (trust me I’m guilty on this too) but Sembawang Park is far from rundown. In fact, this hidden corner in the north of Singapore has one of two natural sandy beaches in Singapore. In addition, the park’s battleship playground is sure to occupy the kids as you grill up some tasty food.

If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, you can book one of the 7 BBQ Pits available at only $12. Plus, you get to drink the night away while watching the waves crash into the shoreline! What can be better?

Sentosa BBQ by the Beach
