Sentosa Island, Singapore

Getting In & Around


Getting In

Basic admission to the island will set you back at least SGD2 per person which is included in the transportation fares from the Singapore mainland to Sentosa Island. There is an ever-changing palette of combination tickets that may work out marginally cheaper if you plan to visit multiple attractions in Sentosa. Though the island itself opens 24 hours and 365 days a year, many of the attractions may be not.

Save on your hotel -

By Train
The best way is in to take the MRT's North-East Line to HarbourFront Station and then make your way to Level 3 of VivoCity, where you'll find the Sentosa Express monorail to the island. The train operates every 5-8 minutes from 7:00 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. daily and a round-trip ticket costs SGD3.

By Taxi & Car
By taxi or private car, you'll need to pay SGD2 to SGD7 per vehicle to enter and a SGD3 taxi surcharge - also applies on the way out back to the mainland. 

By Walking
It is now possible to walk between the mainland and Sentosa Island by crossing a bridge via the Sentosa Broadwalk. A fee of SGD1 is charged and the EZ-Link card is accepted.

By Cable Car
There is a cable car between HarbourFront and Mt. Faber on the mainland and Sentosa Isiland. A return ticket on the cable car costs SGD26.

All transportation around Sentosa Island is free except taxis.

By Bus
Three coloured shuttle bus services (Yellow Line, Red Line and Blue Line) connect Imbiah Station (near the Merlion) with various points on the island. Buses run from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on weekdays and until 12:30 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

By Tram
Beach trams supplemented by minivans shuttle people along the beaches every 15-20 minutes. One service connects Beach Station to Siloso Beach, another connects Beach Station to Palawan and Tanjong Beaches.

By Train
The old round-the-island Sentosa Monorail was decommissioned in March 2005 to make way for the new Sentosa Express, which can also be used to shuttle between the beaches and Imbiah Station.
