Changi Point Coastal Walk

Description

Spanning 2.2 kilometres along the northeastern coast of Singapore, from Changi Creek in the east and onwards past Changi Beach Club in the west, the Changi Point Coastal Walk terminates at Changi Point or the Loyang Park Connector (Netheravon Road). The boardwalk comprises six different sections: Creek Walk (280 m), Beach Walk (660 m), Sailing Point Walk (600 m), Cliff Walk (180 m), Kelong Walk (200 m) and Sunset Walk (120 m).

A myriad of organisms can be seen from the boardwalk, such as the birds flying overhead (e.g. Brahminy Kites, Black-naped Terns, and Pacific Swallows) or the many plants flanking the path (e.g. Sea Lettuce shrubs, as well as Sea Hibiscus and Sea Almond trees).

Other places of interest in the Changi area include Changi Village and Changi Beach Park. Located within the former is the Changi Point Ferry Terminal – the departure point for nearby Pulau Ubin. The Changi Walking Trail, where nine heritage trees can be found, runs behind part of the Coastal Walk.

Getting there

The following directions are for entry into the Coastal Walk via its starting point at Changi Creek. For those who drive, a public car park is located in front of the Changi Point Ferry Terminal, from which the boardwalk can be accessed via Changi Village Road or Netheravon Road. Visitors going by bus may either alight at Changi Village Bus Terminal (services 2 and 29) or Loyang Avenue/Telok Paku Road (services 9, 19 and 89), and take a short walk to the aforementioned access points.
