Nature's IR: Sentosa's Natural Shores

At Sentosa, nature has had an integrated resort for a long long time! And tucked away in a corner of Sentosa, is a marvellous natural shore.

The Naked Hermit Crabs have specially designed an easy one-and-a-half-hour Family Trail to introduce kids 5 years and above to this shore during low tide. No need to swim or dive! Come with the whole family!

Some of the amazing NATURAL sights include spectacular cliffs with features such as 断魂崖 (i.e. Broken Soul Cliff). A lush coastal forest cloaks this cliff and is home to rare plants such as the Raffles pitcher plant and wild orchids. We will also explore the natural lagoon which has living corals, seagrasses and lots of marine life. Sea anemones, nudibranchs and colourful crabs are some of the sights we are sure to encounter.

There will be a little bit of climbing, and you will get your shoes wet when we explore part of the lagoon.

For the more hardy and fool hardy, the Naked Hermit Crabs have also designed an Adventure Trail on this shore! This trail is much longer and more physically demanding than the Family Trail. It takes about two and a half hours and is suitable for kids 13 years old and above.

This trail brings us past some spectacular cliff features including natural caves, scupltured pink rocks and other geological wonders.

Check out more photos from our previous adventures.
