One of the hidden gems along the East Coast Parkway is Parkland Green. This little plot of land is full of surprises. There you can find wholesome family fun activities from laser tags to bubble soccer. If you are driving, head for the car park C1 and if you fancy some exercise to work up the appetite, you can start from Parkway Parade Shopping Centre and make your way through the underpass to cross to the beach.
There are loads for eateries around the area ranging from Starbucks to Northern Indian and Mexican outlets.
My personal favourite is Atmosphere Bistro and Bar, just a stone's throw from the beach.
If you observe carefully from the photo above, the reflection of the beach can be seen on the glass pane.
The place is also kids-friendly and you can relax and enjoy your food while the kids play nearby.
The place serves a fusion of local Thai-style concoctions such as prata mussels and eggs benedict (nasi) lemak burger.
