Coney Island, Singapore

After having a rich and delicious home cooked Bhutanese lunch with my friend yesterday, I decided to go out for cycling to burn some calories. I went out earlier and the haze was still there occupying the sky. No sunset was to be found. It was all just white grayish clouds.

Cycling at Punggol :)

I took the same route. From Punggol Waterway I headed to Punggol Settlement and stopped at the beach side for a while, just to enjoy the sea breeze and watch the people nearby who were trying their luck fishing.

West Entrance to Coney Island - Singapore

In a while I continued my journey. After passing by the Punggol Settlement (where many restaurants and cafés were located), at the bridge on my left, I saw something unusual. The green metal gate that used to be locked before, it was opened. Hmm... weird, I thought. Oh, there was wordings on the gate. It said - Coney Island. Aha! That word rang the bell!!!

Coney Island - Singapore

Just before going out from home, my hubby told me to find that island, the newly opened rustic and natural island, also called Pulau Serangoon, was just opened for public 4 days ago. Well, it's been months I didn't read or watch news from media, so the only news I heard was mostly from his mouth. I wasn't really sure or paying attention about the location too. However, I finally found it! ^^

Road signs at Coney Island - Singapore 

The distance from west to east entrance was only 2.4 km. However you could browse around many beach area where you could relax and unwind in its log bench or chairs. They wanted to make it as nature as possible but I think they might do some improvement on the road path. Currently it was sandy and slippery (quite dangerous for those who cycling, especially young children who might not good in controlling their bikes).

It opens daily from 7am to 7pm. There weren't many lamp posts installed along the main road yet so it would be dark when the sun was down. That's also why they closed early. And don't forget to apply mosquito repellant when going there as there were many hungry mosquitoes flying invisibly.

Coney Island East Entrance - Singapore :)

Easy entrance was heading to Lorong Halus. I made U-turn back to where I was from and continued the rest of my cycling path. What a great exercise time! Not only for the body, but also the mind. So, when you were free on the weekend, you know where to go now! Let your life be free from stress and enjoy the nature as much as you can. Good luck and have fun! ^^

Thank you Flora for browsing this through!

The more rustic it is, the best it will be! Since everything in Singapore are man-made, hard to find the natural one! ;)
