Our tips for Sentosa Island

  • Stroll to the end of Asia. A wander across the floating rope bridge at Siloso Beach offers more than just an Instagram-worthy photo. Reach the end of the bridge and you’ll be at the southernmost point of continental Asia.
  • Get prepped. The weather here can be unpredictable, so bring a waterproof jacket on your Sentosa Island trip just in case!
  • Beat the crowds. Bid goodbye to long queues and book your tour to Sentosa Island well in advance. Talking about Singapore’s top experiences, Universal Studios, and the S.E.A Aquarium are particularly popular, so snatch up some tickets early to avoid missing out.
  • Save extra bucks. The animal and bird encounters on Palawan Beach offer free shows and epic live entertainment each day from 2 pm to 5:30 pm. View the exotic birds and even handle a python if you dare. For cheaper entry to the island’s main attractions, book Afternoon Till Sunset At Sentosa Island to enjoy fewer crowds and skip-the-line entry.

Good to know

With luscious rainforests, golden beaches, golf courses, and an integrated resort, the stunning Sentosa Island offer travelers and locals some much-needed downtime away from the big smoke. The world’s largest oceanarium, Resort World Sentosa is home to almost 700,000 diverse sea creatures and holds 20 million gallons of water.

Famously known as “The Island of Tranquility”, the island’s previous name was far more somber. Up until 1972, the island was called Pulau Belakang Mati, meaning “The Island after Death”. Despite being a thriving tourist destination, almost 70% of the island remains natural rainforest, with a flourishing and diverse wildlife ecosystem.

Sentosa’s S.E.A. Aquarium is the planet’s biggest oceanarium. It is home to over 100,000 aquatic creatures. The iconic Merlion statue of the island is 37 m tall and takes over 10 days to clean. Also, did you know Sentosa is just about 500m away from Singapore? That is way less than Orchard Road.
