Tour Itineraries


Beach Bumming Tour

Take the Beach Tram through Beach Station (where you need to change trams) and down to Dolphin Lagoon (not really a lagoon but a large dolphin pool or tank). Here you get to see dolphins perform, jumping through hoops and other acrobatic shows - free with your Underwater World admission. Try to time your visit for the "Meet the Dolphin" sessions at 11:00 am, 1.30 pm, 3.30 pm and 5.30 pm.

Entrance to Dolphin Lagoon by Sengkang

By now even the most determined traveller is going to feel a bit hot and sweaty. Head on back to Palawan Beach located right next to Dolphin Lagoon, which features the self-proclaimed Southernmost Point of the Asian Continent (a claim vigorously disputed by Malaysia). There are a few shops and eateries here if you need a bite and drinks. Sentosa also offers two other beaches including Siloso Beach and Tanjung Beach. The beaches on Sentosa Island may not be the best in Southeast Asia but are well-maintained, clean, have good facilities and safe for swimming.

Siloso Beach by Calvin Teo

Once you've had your fill of relaxing at the beach, there are two ways to continue:

Option 1 - If you've had your fill of Sentosa, take the Red Line bus to the Merlion, take the obligatory souvenir snapshots and then take the series of escalators back to the cable car station. Take the cable car back across to HarbourFront but don't get off yet and instead, continue straight onto Mount Faber for nice sunset views of Singapore. Take the cable car back to HarbourFront and head out in search of dinner.

Option 2 - If night is falling but you're still in the mood for more Sentosa, take the Beach Tram back and catch the 7:40 pm or 8:40 pm shows at the Songs of the Sea, a multimedia extravaganza with singing, dancing, lasers, pyrotechnics and more. Tickets cost SGD6 and it's best to book them early, as the show is very popular, especially on weekends. If you have time to kill, grab a bite at the Koufu food court nearby before hopping on a bus to the cable car station.
