Explore the Beauty of Singpore at Changi Beach Park

Located at the northeastern tip of Singapore, Changi Beach Park is one of the country’s oldest coastal parks. It stretches for more than three kilometers from Changi Point through to the Changi Ferry Road. This family-oriented venue offers a variety of activities and is popular with locals and tourists visiting Singapore.

Serviced campsites at Changi Beach Park offer facilities for overnight campers, while picnic spots, which include barbecue pits, are popular with family groups, as well as groups of young people who enjoy spending time outdoors. There is a playground as well as pathways that are perfect for jogging or taking a stroll. Watching the sunrise from the Changi Ferry Terminal or the view of a sunset from Changi Point is an unforgettable experience. Changi Point, also known as Changi Boardwalk, is a timber walkway that was built as part of the Singapore Green Plan 2012 – a government blueprint for environment sustainability – and features night-lighting and rest points at regular intervals. From Changi Point, visitors can view giant heritage trees, including the Tampines tree and the Damar Gajah Hitam.

The Changi Boardwalk is divided into six sections leading into one another, each with its own unique features. As the name suggests, Sunset Walk is the best place to view the awe-inspiring beauty of the setting sun, while the Kelong Walk, so named because it is built above water on kelong-type stilts, offers several lookout platforms that are popular fishing spots. The Cliff Walk cuts a path through lush greenery slightly inland and has a series of viewing decks giving visitors spectacular panoramic views of the surroundings. The longest stretch of the boardwalk is the Sailing Point Walk running along the edge of the sea in front of the Changi Sailing Club. The Beach Walk faces the charming Serangoon Harbor and the Changi Beach Park, while the Creek Walk lies on the southern bank of the Sungei Changi River that flows into the sea.

A visit to the Changi Beach Park and Changi Boardwalk, as well as the nearby Changi Village, is well worthwhile if you are traveling in Singapore. It will give you an opportunity to mingle with the people that call this beautiful country home.
