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 nothing fake about the soft sand, which is actually imported in from nearby Malaysia. Sentosa island boasts 3.2km of the white stuff, and visitors can find plenty to do, such as lounging at one of the various beach bars (sea Sentosa nightlife), splashing around in the shallow warm sea or just finding a quiet spot underneath a palm tree with a good book for the afternoon. For the best spots, head to Tanjong, Palawan, or Siloso Beach. Read More...
Singapore’s Crane Dance is a family friendly audio visual extravaganza, similar in style to the Symphony of Lights in Hong Kong. Head to Resorts World Sentosa on any night of the week at 20:00 to see two graceful love-birds dance and flirt to the sound of music, all of which is spectacularly lit up in the dark. The show promises groundbreaking audio visuals, water effects and LED light which really impress the crowds who come to watch - for free - every night. You can also catch the show from across the water at Vivo City on the main Singapore Island if you don’t fancy making the short journey across to Sentosa Island. Read More...

Part attraction – part method of transportation - Sentosa Skyline Luge & Skyride is a perfect way of getting from A to B all whist getting some great views across Singapore, as well as an adrenaline fix too! The Sentosa Skyride is an open-air cable-driven chairlift which stretches from mainland Singapore all the way to Sentosa island. Within the same complex, visitors can also try their driving skills at the luge - a non-motorised, three-wheel carrier that goes down a steep hill from near the Imbiah Lookout and ends at the Siloso Beach. Both activities offer tree-top views of the nearby beaches as well as the Singapore skyline. Read More...

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!
