Changi Boardwalk

If you are planning for a quiet stroll amid lush greenery with the sound of waves lapping on the shore and the cool seabreeze blowing into your face, you may like to consider spending some time along the Changi Boardwalk. Spanning 2.2km along the coastline of Changi located at the eastern tip of Singapore, the Changi Boardwalk consists of four sections namely, Sunset Walk, Kelong Walk, Cliff Walk, Sailing Point Walk. The boardwalk offers a panoramic view from Changi Beach Club right up to Changi Sailing Club.

    Hi YG,

    Thanks for the link to Seen This Scene That. An interesting blogsite about our little island. And the song “Hakuna Matata” always add some cheer and smiles as worries fades away.

    Hi Ning,

    SBS bus services No.2, 29, 59 and 109 ply to Changi Village bus interchange. From there, it’s a short walk to begin your stroll along the boardwalk from Sailing Point Walk. Here’s the link for more details of the bus services : http://www.sbstransit.com.sg/transport/trpt_bus_inter.aspx

    Ordinary Guy,
    great walk, I enjoyed walking along the boardwalk on my last visit to SIngapore a year ago last November. It covers a lot of the areas I used to love to explore as a child my father was posted to RAF Changi (1958). There used to be a fenced off area used for swimming next to the rock you show in one of the photographs. We also used to do a lot of fishing from the fenced area which had a boardwalk going out to some diving boards. During some stormy weather once the waves were about five feet high and we were diving off the diving platform into the top of waves as they came in and then swimming in to the shore as though we were riding on a roller coaster. After stormy weather we would explore the shoreline looking for interesting things washed up on the beach and often find dead puffer fish and king crabs but never anything valuable. The grassed area behind was called the Changi Padang and was kept in immaculate condition as a sports field with football, cricket and athletics areas. Sadly this sports area is no longer is no longer immaculate. I have ha simialr set of photographs to the ones in your posting which can be viewed on my website at jollygreenp.co.uk by following the Singapore link from the index page.

  14. ordinary guy Says:

    Sheila, here’s a link to SBS Transit bus services to Changi Village: http://www.sbstransit.com.sg/journeyplan/landmark.aspx

    The Changi Boardwalk and Changi Beach are at two different locations along Changi coast. You may refer to the map in the above post to gain some familiarity with the area.
