What more, the entrance to Sentosa is free till 31 Dec 2020!

Chill at Tanjong Beach

For those looking to have a relaxing time at the beach indulging in their favourite book and music, Tanjong Beach is definitely the place to get away from the hectic pace of city life. Its tranquil atmosphere is thanks to its remote location at the southern end of Sentosa beachfront coastline.

Explore the southernmost tip of Asia

For some adventuring at the beach, cross the suspension bridge at Palawan Beach to the southernmost tip of Asia. While you’re there, be sure to climb up the watchtower to enjoy a panoramic view of the South China sea as ships sail pass.

Play some beach sports at Siloso Beach

The beach isn’t just for sightseeing and chilling, it’s where all sorts of people gather to play beach sports such as Beach Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee and Football! So call up your friends and family and head down to Siloso Beach to engage in one of the most fun beach activities you can do!

 

Walk along Fort Siloso Skywalk

Singapore has its own fair share of well-known Skywalks such as the OCBC Skyway and Henderson Waves, but the tallest one yet is Fort Siloso Skywalk, at 11 storeys high! It boasts beautiful views of Western Sentosa, Mount Faber and Keppel Harbour. Be sure to take plenty of photos but please don’t drop your phones while doing so!

Go back in time at Fort Siloso

Singapore’s only preserved coastal fort is a treasure trove of WWII memorabilia. You can learn of its rich history by walking along its two trails: the Heritage Trail and the Gun Trail. Alternatively, you can go back in time with the Surrender Chambers immersive show where you get to relive Singapore’s epoch-making events.

Go hiking at Sentosa Nature Discovery

Nature lovers are sure to love this particular activity because in this 1.8-kilometre trek through a rainforest, you’ll get to get up and close with the birds, insects, plants of Sentosa. If you’re really observant, there’s over 20 different species of birds and even other animals like geckos and squirrels to see!

Mingle with bird-buddies

Animal & Bird Encounters is a great thing to do to break the routine and try something unusual. Here, you get to watch daily shows where exotic parrots and many different birds show off their intelligence. You can even get up close and personal with animals like monkeys and snakes and pose for a photo with them!

Explore the secret side of the State of Fun – Tanjong Rimau

Tucked behind Rasa Sentosa and beyond a rocky slope, lies Tanjong Rimau. The coast even has small caves ripe for exploring. At low tide, marine life such as crabs, corals and starfish reveal themselves. Free from reclamation and deserted due to its remote location, it almost feels like you own your very own private beach!

Take pictures with the Merlion

Grab your camera and give your best smile with the legendary mascot of Singapore. Standing tall at 37 metres at Merlion Plaza, it will surely make for an impressive picture!

Watch movies by the beach

Who says you have to get Gold Class tickets to enjoy a unique movie experience? At Palawan Green, you can enjoy an outdoor movie screening under the stars, showing classics like Mamma Mia and Hollywood blockbusters like Iron Man.

Bring your date to Quayside Isle

Situated near Sentosa Cove, taking a leisurely walk along Quayside Isle’s cobbled pavements in the evening is the perfect way to wrap up a date. The neatly arranged yachts also lend some charm to the scene of the setting sun. With its quiet atmosphere and scenic view, it’s a great way to unwind and end the day.

Watch RWS Crane dance fireworks

Alternatively, you can end your day at the State of Fun with a bang by admiring the fireworks display courtesy of The Crane Dance.  Awesome lights, sounds, and water effects await you at the Waterfront of Resorts World Sentosa every night at around 8 pm.
