    Old Pictures in Sentosa Island, Pulau Belakang Mati or Sentosa Island was originally a fishing village in the 1800's and when then the British then made a militay camp and a fort named siloso here as coastal battery defense of Singapore. Captured by the Japanese in 1942 and returned by the British to Singapore, today, Sentosa is an island complex with a themed attraction, tropical resort, nature park and heritage centre all rolled into one! Just minutes away from the city by cable car, ferry or road. This small 390 hectare island at the southern tip of singapore is boasting a kaleidoscope of attractions and activities.

    Sentosa 2; war history, monorail & more beaches

    by WanderingFinn Updated Feb 1, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sentosa Island just is so beautiful to me, that there are not words to describe it.

    I was so lucky to be there during a working/weekday, so I could be alone and no-one was "spoiling" my photographs, I could just photograph the nature alone.

    Just had so many pictures that I needed to make two tips of Sentosa. This is the second part. Please see also "Continental Asia's southernmost place".

    In Sentosa there is also something for (war)history fans; an old fort named "Fort Siloso". There is a museum and a souvenir shop.

    There is a monorail going around the island; a good way to look around and save your feet.

    have you wondered where is the Southernmost Point of Southeast Asia? It is on Sentosa Island. Cross the swinging bridge to the 2 viewing towers at Palawan Beach and you will be able to see the Sentosa sand castle landmark.

    How about enjoy the cool breeze on top of the tower?

    Sentosa Island - Theme park of Singapore

    by SLLiew Updated Oct 3, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a get-away from the main Singapore Island. There is a short bus ride over causeway, drive your car across or cable car from Mount Faber or Harborfront Center to get there.

    A variety of places to visit. An underwater world aquarium, butterfly park, insect world, flying trapeze, Sky tower, beaches for swimming or playing volleyball, a new popular luge, 4D movies, historical museum, Fort Sisilo, dolphin shows, etc. Also golf, resort hotel and spa resort.

    Various sorts of packages. With admission, there is a free shuttle to take you point to point. The "monorail" and "ferry to Sentosa" has been long been discontinued if you were in Sentosa when it started.

    Hordes of tourists come to see the twice nightly laser, water musical fountain show. It is worth seeing once though there is a long waiting time as everyone come early to get a good seat. This is not Disneyland but if you are bringing along kids, it is another fun family time and a break from shopping.

    Sentosa's beaches

    by SWFC_Fan Written Oct 1, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Despite being noticeably artificial, the beaches on Sentosa Island are arguably the best beaches that Singapore has to offer.

    The three beaches on the island's south and west coasts are Siloso Beach, Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach.

    They have all been artificially created using fine imported sand and specially planted palm trees. While they do look very exotic, they do not look particularly natural. The sea varies along the coast from being relatively clear to being a little murky, but it's fine for swimming in. Several small artificial islands have been created off the coast which you can either wade out to or, in some cases, reach by bridge.

    Siloso Beach is the most westerly of the three beaches. It offers a few luxurious accommodation options and plenty of places to dine and shop. There are children's playareas, rollerblading tracks, volleyball nets and a few watersport options.

    Palawan Beach offers less in the way of accommodation and restaurants, but more in the way of entertainment. At the time of my visit, a beach football competition was taking place on several small pitches, while others were playing beach volleyball. There are also various watersports options available from this beach. Palawan does offer a handful of beachside bars where you can enjoy a drink or a snack with sea views.

    From Palawan Beach, you can cross a suspension bridge which brings you to a small islet which is the "Southernmost Point of Continental Asia" (see my other tip for more details).

    The most easterly of the three beaches is Tanjong Beach. This beach is quieter and less developed than the other two beaches on the island.

    Sentosa Island

    by SWFC_Fan Written Sep 30, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The pleasure island of Sentosa is located just off the southern coast of Singapore.

    It makes for a great daytrip (or even a few days stay on the island), especially if you are travelling with children.

    Sentosa is easily reached from central Singapore by a combination of the MRT (see my transport tip for more details) and then a bus or cable car across to the island.

    Entry to the island costs S$2 (correct as at November 2005) and this fee includes all transport around the island - by bus or monorail.

    Some of the attractions on the island are free. For example, there is a rainforest nature walk, a nightly laser show and the best beaches that Singapore has to offer. The impressive, but artificial, beaches boast soft sand, palm trees and clear seas. There is ample room for sunbathing, swimming, playing ball games and participating in a number of watersports.

    However, many of the attractions on the island must be paid for. If you choose to do this on an individual basis, the costs will soon mount up. The best value option is to purchase one of the packages on offer at the entrance. I opted for a package called "Tour 1" (S$56.90 per person). This included:

    - cable car transfers to and from the island;

    - a ride on the Carlsberg Sky Tower;

    - entrance to Underwater World aquarium;

    - a ride on the Cinemania virtual reality rollercoaster;

    - entrance to a Dolphinarium show.

    There are other more expensive packages available which include more attractions (rollercoasters, museums, shows etc) and you will need to decide which package best suits your needs.

    The island offers plenty of restaurants, fast food joints, cafes and food stalls. If you wish to spend longer than a day on the island (and I didn't have any desire to spend more than a day there to be honest), there are a few hotels by the beach.

    You can find more information about the island and its numerous (and ever increasing) attractions on the excellent official website:

    If you ever get to Singapore, a trip over to Sentosa Island is a must, but you need to stick around till dark for the musical lights concert, an awesome show that I would love to bottle for posterity.

    There are many interesting things to do on Sentosa whilst waiting for dark. I took the ferry across as the queue for the cable car was so long it would have been at least a 2 hour wait. Maybe one day I'll do the cable car trip but I'd recommend getting there very early.

    Great adventure that offers a variety of activities. You have to try the cable car ride going to the island as it has a fantastic view of the channel. Play golf, go to the aquarium, play in the amusement center, see the merlion light show, drink, eat, be merry - it's an island of recreation.

    Sentosa Island: Take the Trails

    by litekimchi Written Aug 17, 2006

    I love walking. I don't do much walking in Manila, so it's always a treat to walk (and not worry about traffic or pollution). Sentosa, luckily, provides many opportunities for walking. You can walk along the beach (see my other tip) ...

    ... or you can take the trails during mid-day when the sun is scorching hot. You can enter through the Jungle Trail entrance from the beach trail. The entrance is between Siloso beach and the Skyride. There are also access from Siloso Beach and from Imbiah point.

    There are two trails: the Nature Walk and the Dragon Trails. Dragon Trails is my favorite, if only because of the dragons---great for photos!

    The best part? They're free.

    Address: Sentosa Island

    Directions: Access points from the Beach Trail on the Siloso Beach side, Siloso Beach and Imbiah Lookout.

    Sentosa Island: Walk along the Beach

    by litekimchi Written Aug 16, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I will never quite enjoy tourist traps the way other people do. But I am not a cynical soul. I always find gems even in tourist traps.

    In Sentosa, despite the beaches being too "landscaped" (or fake) for my taste, walking along the shore still has its appeal. And despite the hoard of people, I still love feeling the breeze on a lazy Sunday afternoon. And if you're too tired to walk, you can rest---while still enjoying the view---on board the beach tram.

    My favorite beach would have to be Palawan Beach, if only because of the long suspension bridge and that this is the site of Continental Asia's Southernmost Point.

    Address: Sentosa Island

    Directions: Take the Blue Line from the Sentosa Visitor Arrival Center. Alight the Beach Station, and take the Beach Tram. You may take the tram running through Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach, or the tram headed for Siloso Beach.

    I really loved Sentosa Island. You have various ways of getting to Sentose. You can choose to go by Bus or Cable Car or just by car. I got there by bus and once I arrive and paid the entrance fee of I think S$3 pp for everything including the bus rides. You got a choice of options of which bus to take and where you plan on going. There is a Yellow Line Bus , Green Line Bus , Red Line Bus and a Blue Line Bus all going to different parts of Sentosa so be sure to get a free map when you arrive so that you know where you going and which bus to take.

    I went and checked out Palawan Beach where you have the Southernmost Point of Continental asia. Its really worth it coming here as the beach is beautiful and the scenary is spectacular. Siloso Beach is also a very nice beach to spend the day and every Saturday they have a live band that performs there from 6pm which is very nice to just sit down for a snack and a few drinks and just enjoy the music and the breeze from the sea. There is really so much to see at Sentosa like the Merlion , Imbiah Lookout , Dolphin Lagoon just to name a few so I would really suggest you go there and make it a day trip as there is alot to see and do here.
