Island GuideThe 10 most instagrammable spots on Sentosa

We know you have mad grammin’ skills and all the coolest filter-ing apps, but put those aside, folks.

On our gorgeous island, all you need to do is point and shoot (ok, in some cases you need to pose too!).

It’s hard to pick only 10 amazingly photo-worthy spots on Sentosa island, but these are the ones that will get you the most double-taps. Pinky swear.

Phones at the ready people! Here are the most Instagram-worthy spots in The State of Fun.

Palawan Beach

No need for the typical sand-between-your-toes beach shot. On Palawan beach, you could show off your #ootd while standing on a suspension bridge or while pointing at a sign that tells you are on THE Southernmost point of Continental Asia (Yup!).

Look out onto the horizon from the islet’s two viewing towers. Insert caption: something profoundly meaningful about looking to the future.

Tanjong Beach Club

Yes this beachside drinking spot right on the beach, but it’s not the clear blue waters or the almost-white sand that you should be photographing here. 

It’s the most beautiful people who congregate here on the weekends in their Sunday best (read: barely-there bikinis and butt-hugging board shorts). A selfie with a backdrop of bare-chested volleyballers, or playing beer pong with a bevvy of beauties, will give your followers severe feed envy. 120 Tanjong Beach Walk, Sentosa Island

Quayside Isle at Sentosa Cove

Singapore’s most tucked-away luxury enclave is an Instagrammer’s dream-come-true. Stand amidst the docked superyachts pretending to choose your ride for the day, or settle down for a drink at one of the many eateries that dot the Marina, and a shot of your #winewithaview will do.  31 Ocean Way, Sentosa Cove,

Poolside at The Capella

The photo opportunities alone make a stay at this 5-Star resort hotel, worth it. With The South China Sea blue waters beyond, a shot of their cascading swimming pools is de rigeur.

There are three (two free-form, and one lap pool) so pose anywhere you like, inside or out. If you are lucky, The Capella’s resident peacocks will make an appearance, and you might be able to take a selfie while #makingnewfriends. 1 The Knolls | Sentosa Island

The Cable Cars

They’re a great way to get in and out of Sentosa while giving you a joyride like no other. 

If taxis, buses and the Sentosa Express are too #basic for you, surely soaring above the harbour into the island in your own glass cabin will please your followers? Caption this: living the high life.

The Globe outside Universal Studios Singapore

Visitors to Universal Studios know that once you step past the ticket gantry, you are having too much fun to bother with the ‘gram. That’s why, the Universal Globe is the perfect, almost necessary, photo-op before you go in.

Gather the fam and make your goofiest faces. Or you could attempt the photo-trick where you attempt to hold the globe up, because why not.


S.E.A. Aquarium

Some people go to the Aquarium to see the 1,000 species of marine animals (including sharks, jellyfish, clownfish and more). Us gram’mers, we go to the aquarium for those blue-hued photographs inside the Aquarium’s acrylic tunnel. 

For max effect, carry a child on your shoulders who can actually touch the tunnel’s ceiling. Bonus points if the little one can sing ‘Baby Shark’ while someone does an IG Story.

AJ Hackett

Yup, you can bungee jump off a tower in Sentosa. At AJ Hackett you can drop, swoop and scream off a Giant Swing, or jump off a 47m Bungy. BUT you cannot take your phone while doing any of those things. 

What you CAN do is sit at the Paulaner Sundowner Deck, and take pictures of people jumping, swinging and swooping while drinking a cold one. Who’s to know it’s not you crossing things off your #bucketlist up there. Siloso Beach

Fort Siloso Skywalk

Go up this 11-storey structure at sunset. The 181 meters long Skywalk trail provides is a  scenic trek with tons of photo ops. 

Lay down on the glass bottom for a selfie, cause you are a #daredevil, or how about a romantic hand-holding shot against the sunset views with a #ihopethesunneversetsonourlove [insert heart emoji]? 51C Imbiah Rd, Sentosa Island

Trick Eye Museum

Here is a tourist attraction 100% dedicated to photo ops. These 3D exhibits and AR (augmented reality) installations are begging to feature heavily on your feed.

Ride a unicorn, get eaten by a giant fish and become a character in a storybook. Here, #nothingiswhatitseems. 26 Sentosa Gateway #01-43/44
