Island GuideGET IN TOUCH WITH NATURE: SENTOSA’S WALKING TRAILS

Take a break from high-rise living and lose yourself in nature.

What better way to get active than to take in our scenic views and beautiful wildlife? If you’ve been a couch potato for too long, it’s time to get those legs moving and heart rate elevated.

Embark on a hike on our walking trails over at Sentosa. Choose from the Imbiah Trail or Coastal Trail. They offer breathtaking views that will keep you motivated as you clock in your steps for the day.

Don’t worry; these trails are beginner-friendly and won’t take up too much time.

Imbiah Trail | 2.3km (30 – 40 minutes)

The Imbiah Trail allows you experience a more tranquil side of Sentosa. Immerse yourself into nature and greenery as you venture into this trail. Pay close attention to the wildlife around you, as you may spot some of our endangered and rare species including the Magpie Robin.

Coastal Trail | 2.2km (30 – 40 minutes)

Be mesmerized with the scenic views this trail as to offer. Unlike our white-sand beaches that you are familiar with, the Coastal Trails brings you along to see new sights such as rocky and sandy shores, and coastal rainforests.

Dragon Teeth Gate

Dragon Teeth Gate

In the 18th and 19th centuries, sharp-edged rocks were aplenty around the island. The Chinese believed these rocks were the Sea Dragon King's teeth and named the maritime gateway to Sentosa (then known as Pulau Blakang Mati) 'Long Ya Men' or 'Dragon's Teeth Gate'.

Coastal Forests

Coastal Forests

Sentosa’s coastal forests are one of a few that are left in Singapore. The forests are home to endangered plants like the Seashore Mangosteen and the Dracena Minyagi, which is the oldest tree species on Sentosa at 200 years old. The forests also support a variety of local wildlife, including bats, squirrels, snakes, birds and macaques.

Apart from coastal forests, you can also enjoy the island’s natural beaches with both sandy and rocky shores while on this route. During low tide, a wide variety of marine life including hard and soft corals, seagrass, seaweed, crabs, anemones, molluscs and fishes can be observed on the beaches.

Sentosa’s coastal shores are also popular pit stops for birds on their way to and from their homes, some of which are as far away as Siberia. The migratory season for birds typically begins in October and ends by the start of the following May. Keep an eye out for migratory visitors such as the Arctic Warbler and Common Sandpiper. Situated along the shores are totem poles, which were salvaged from the now-defunct Sentosa Ferry Terminal.
