Families young and old were spotted over the weekend. Bikes, scooters, pets and joggers,
everyone wanted a piece of the rustic Coney Island.
Video (Link) : We love the cycling paths and slopes!
50 Ha is neither too small nor too big, end to end is about 2km plus.
Let the kids do their own navigation, chart their own “paths” and Fun 🙂
We will be back to explore the mangrove and intertidal boardwalk area.
When we hear intertidal, we assumed it has to be low tide, mangroves, mud-skippers and fiddler crabs. (we love our intertidal experience at Sisters Island, Pulau Semakau, Sungei Buloh and Chek Jawa)
1) Do expect mosquitoes and even sand flies (sandy patches) on the island.
Protect the little ones with insect repellents. More about sand flies from Wildshore article. Do not scratch!
2) It can be pretty hot too, do bring enough water, otherwise the nearest waterhole might be 7-11 back at Punggol Settlement. We did not check whether there are water coolers at the toilets.
3) Opening hours is 7am to 7pm, I am not sure whether anyone can be accidentally locked overnight 🙂
4) If you love nature, it might take your family a leisurely two hours to explore the corners.
Perhaps add another 30 minutes for a picnic by the coast.
5) Pick up your own litter and let us keep Coney Island clean.
6) Respect the flora and fauna, wildlife, monkeys, cow, otters and wildboars. Admire them from a distance, no feeding and milking ( Npark’s Cow advisory wahaha!)
7) We can take bus 84 from Punggol Interchange to Punggol End too.
8) The nearest carpark might be at Punggol Settlement (end of Punggol Road). Those who wish to cycle can follow the scenic park connector from Anchorvale Swimming Complex (Sengkang) all the way to Punggol’s Coney Island (about 7 km).
9) East entrance via Lorong Halus –> drive straight towards Pasir Ris Coast Industrial Park 6
(Rough GPS is 1.39699 103.93105)
You can cycle from 1) Lorong Halus dirt track to 3) East Entrance too. Take note there is no carpark at Lorong Halus, cars were park at the side. If you cycling in from Lorong Halus road, be careful of heavy vehicles.
I would recommend West entrance for easier access. There might be a track from Pasir Ris Farm area to Coney Island too.
