Sentosa Attractions

What to See in Sentosa

Sentosa Island, which is hugely popular with both locals and tourists alike, is Singapore's mega theme-park on an island. The offshore island of Sentosa, once the domain of tropical forest and rocky coasts, has been redeveloped into a sprawling amusement park where you can swim, sunbathe, whizz down water slides, visit butterfly parks and wax museums, and eat to your heart's content.

Sentosa will take at least one whole day if you want to visit the various amusement sites. It's also a great place to stay overnight, to soak in the beach holiday mood and be away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are camping grounds, a hostel and two luxury resorts, the Sentosa Resort & Spa and the Shangri-La's Rasa Sentosa Resort.

Going to Sentosa Island is all part of the fun if you go there by cable-car or ferry. The cable-car service is from the HarbourFront Centre (previously World Trade Centre), and you will get a good bird's eye view of Mount Faber, one of Singapore highest points, during the ride. For SG$120, you can also experience a romantic "sky" dinner for two aboard the cable car on Friday and Saturday nights. Ferry rides, another enjoyable way to get to Sentosa, are also available from the HarbourFront Centre.

Alternatively, you could take one of the special buses running to-and-fro the mainland and Sentosa. You can take Sentosa Bus Service E from Orchard Road, Service C from Tiong Bahru MRT, or Service A from the  HarbourFront Centre. Admission to Sentosa Island is SG$ 6 for adults and SG$ 4 for children between 3 and 12 years. There will be separate charges for the various attractions on the island.

Once on the island, there's a free bus service that runs round the island and departs every 10 minutes. There's also a free monorail service that makes a loop round the island, and gives you a scenic view of Sentosa. Otherwise, you could rent a bike from the kiosk near the ferry terminal.

Below is a list and information of the many attractions on Sentosa Island.

Sentosa Beaches

Singapore is famous for its staggering manmade developments that have quickly turned what was just a small jungle island into a sprawling metropolis in just a matter of decades. Its beaches are no exception; the pristine white sands you see today on Sentosa’s coast are all the result of human intervention. Although technically manmade, there is Read More...

Sentosa Nature Discovery

Sentosa Nature Discovery is another great activity on the Sentosa Island for both nature lovers and families with young kids. The attraction starts off on an educational note, with visitors being treated to a range of interesting galleries and interactive exhibitions; this is all a prerequisite for entering the jungle, the idea being that you will become equipped with some skills and information needed for spotting some wild life yourself. The jungle trail takes you through eight different types of habit with an abundance of different vegetation, trees and wildlife, including birds, insects - and if you’re lucky - the odd reptile. You can find Sentosa Nature Discovery located next to the Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom (see above). One more important thing: entrance is free for all!
