Heart thumping beats combined with alcohol on the sandy beaches of Sentosa Island, these holi events are wet, wild and insanely fun! The massive crowds you find at the Holi events on Sentosa are made up predominantly of tertiary students, young working professionals and expatriates. On a sidenote, did you know that Sentosa’s tagline is the State of Fun?
