If you’ve been spending all your hours cooped up in the office rushing to meet deadline after deadline, we think it’s time to get out and feel the warmth of the sunshine on your face again.

Where, you ask? Look no further than the CBD. This 1-4 June, DBS brings the beach to you.

Laze around in hammocks

Back for its sixth edition, the DBS Marina Regatta will see the return of Singapore’s first and only urban pop-up beach at Marina Bay.

Dubbed “Singapore’s Biggest BayFest”, there’s no place like the DBS Marina Regatta this summer.

There will be plenty to eat and drink

From lying in a hammock with an ice cold cocktail, to taking lululemon yoga classes against a scenic backdrop, to tackling Singapore’s largest inflatable water obstacle course, the DBS Marina Regatta has something for everyone!

Here are some amazing highlights at the DBS Marina Regatta!

1. Sip On Cocktails at Potato Head’s Coconut Bar

2. Make A Splash At The Giant Inflatable Water Obstacle Course

Tackle the course as an individual or a team of four, and stand a chance to win cash prizes if you or your team clock the fastest time. With both bragging rights and $8,000 up for grabs, you’ll want to start training now.
