Beach Road is a road located within the planning areas of Kallang, Rochor and the Downtown Core in Singapore.

Beach Road near Raffles Hotel.

The road starts at its junction with Crawford Street in Kallang in the north, runs in a generally southerly direction, enters the Downtown Core at its junction with Ophir Road, and ends at its junction with Stamford Road and St. Andrew's Road to the south.
