Changi Bay Point: A Scenic Coastal Route You Need to Check Out!
Updated: Mar 24, 2022
Getting bored of cycling the same old path in Singapore? Missing the scenic coastal views you get to see overseas? Here is your chance! Changi Bay Point is your next scenic location to experience the ultimate “touristy” vibes and to view the endless natural beauty without having to leave Singapore. 🌇 🌳 🍃
Forming part of the eastern corridor of the Route-Island-Route (RIR), the newly unveiled Changi Bay Point Park Connector is a new outdoor destination for one to explore! It is 3.6km long and connects Changi Beach Park to the East Coastal Park Connector Network.
Aviation Park Road
Bus Service: The nearest bus stop is near Carpark 6 of Changi Beach Park
Nearest MRT: Bedok / Tanah Merah
How we got there:
From Bedok Interchange, we boarded Bus 35 and alighted at Before Changi Ferry Road, Changi Coast Road (95161). Upon reaching, we unlocked SG Bike bicycles (Download the SG Bike app here!) located at the yellow bicycle parking box there and cycled just 1 minute before reaching Changi Bay Point Park Connector.
Keep a lookout for these interesting landmarks:
1. Cycling Bridges
At Changi Bay Point, there are two 80-metre cycling bridges that connects Changi Coast Road and Tanah Merah Coast. Overlooking the waterfront, these bridges indefinitely provide a splendid view of nature as you continue the Route Island Route.
2. Seaside Cycling Paths
The scenic green corridor at Changi Bay Point Park Connector offers seaside views that provide great opportunities for various recreational activities – apart from cycling, one could also take a walk or skate here!
With much of the path being filled with Lalang grass, snap some photos along the way to “trick” your friends into thinking you are overseas 😜 – Now you do not have to travel all the way to Jurong Lake Garden’s Lalang field for your dreamy Lalang field shots!
3. Boardwalk and Lookout Pavilion
The 140-metre-long boardwalk made from slip-resistant glass fiber and reinforced concrete is connected to a breakwater. This allows visitors to be closer to the water’s edge as they enjoy the unobstructed waterfront views.
Located near the boardwalk is a romantic pavilion with benches 🪑🌲where you can take a break and further admire the tranquil and scenic setting of the coast.
4. Lone & “Floating” Trees
Keep a lookout for a few photogenic little “floating” lone trees as you cycle along the way! You can best view them during high tide as it creates an illusion of the trees “floating” in the sea.
For those who wish to shake things up from their monotonous daily exercise routine, (& are a sucker for good views 🌅), this is the place you would not want to miss.
