Sunset at Singapore Beach, Sentosa.

Sunset at Siloso beach, Sentosa island, Singapore.
Shutter Speed 1/40, F-stop 10.0, ISO 400, Flash Used, Exposure Manual, Focal Length 18.0mm, Image Size-4272 x 2848.




The coastline is marked by three lovely man-made beaches – Siloso Beach, Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach. It is relatively save to swim around or involve any of water activities such as beach volleyball, beach soccer, cycling, rollerblading and kayaking.

Getting to Sentosa is very fun and joy. The simplest way is by taking train of North-East line and alight at Habour Front Station. From there just straight up to 3rd level of ViVo City shopping mall, transfer to mono-rail, which is S$3(may vary) for return trip.

On the way to the beach, the mono rail will carry you to the very first station, Water Front Station, where you can take beautiful photos at Universal Studio. The next is Ambiah Station where the Merlion (Singapore logo) is there. And the last is Beach Station, where the beautiful Sentosa is awaiting visitors. You can alight and board again and again the mono rail from station to station without any additional fees.

The tram ride is free at the point of writing this post and it run for two directions, one is to Siloso beach and the other route is to the Tanjong beach. After alighting from mono rail, the tram at the right is to Siloso and to the left is to Tanjong beach.

interesting framing for the first photo! the 2nd photos makes a great postcard... hmm but i don't see much sand on the beaches... i do recall artificial sand at Sentosa when i last visited many years back.

Hey, welcome back
Lechua, what else you expect?? I already mentioned man-made beach. :D
This is Singapore, you know..

Yes, Fufu. I believe you need one whole day to explore around. I am thinking to post the whole Sentosa, roaming around, getting there in detail. But you know, a bit lazy. :)

That's incredible!
Funnily enough, a while ago I came across an article called "10 Best Places to see Sunset in the World", Sentosa was one of them!!!

I used "Cloudy" setting and I auto-fixed the pictures.
I didn't change the saturation though. ;-)
