SENTOSA PRESENTS: SOMEWHERE ONLY WE KNOW
You don’t have to go far to find your holiday escape.
#MakeTime to explore the hidden gems of Sentosa, and they might just surprise you.
Coming into Sentosa from the mainland? Did you know it's completely free to walk, scoot or bicycle into the island via the 670m shaded boardwalk? Once you are on the island all ground transport is also free. Familiarise yourself with the buses and beach trams and get around for free.
Then set off on a 1.8-kilometre trek through a tropical rainforest, on Sentosa Nature Discovery where you can spot up to 20 different species of birds, insects, plants and even cute squirrels and geckos. From here, you can also explore Sentosa’s many nature trails such as the Imbiah Trail, and the Coastal Trail.
Sentosa’s several kilometres of pristine coastline and three separate beaches offer numerous ways to entertain yourself. Pack a picnic basket from home and pick a shady spot and settle down. Go for a swim, and for that we like Tanjong Beach’s clear and safe waters best. Run, jog or walk with the sand between your toes. Go exploring at Palawan Beach — cross over the rope bridge to the Southernmost Point of Continental Asia. Climb up one of the two towers, and marvel at the view of Sentosa, and the South China Sea.
End your jungle adventure, where only a short walk away is Fort Siloso. A small fort, an on-site military museum and an 11-storey, 181 meters long Skywalk trail can easily be accessed via a nifty glass elevator. The walk along the skybridge provides guests with a scenic trek among the treetops en route to the Fort Siloso. It’s a doable walk, with enough space to stop and take in the view. The trek is also wheelchair and stroller accessible.
For something ‘off the beaten track’, trek to the rocky slope behind Rasa Sentosa to Tanjong Rimau where you will chance upon small caves, a tiny strip of beach and naturally rugged coastline. During low tide, try to spot marine creatures such as corals, starfish, crabs, and even octopus hiding in the nooks and crannies of the rocky shore.. Walk along the tidal pools, mangrove trees and caves nearer the coastline and look out for the pitcher plants on the cliffs.
