Bukit Chermin Boardwalk: Relaxing Stroll By The Sea With Views Of Hillside Colonial Bungalows & Sentosa

Bukit Chermin Boardwalk


For a break from the digital screens we spend 99% of our time with, head out for a walk instead for a healthy dose of nature. Neighbourhood parks are great for a stroll or jog, but sometimes, it’s worth travelling a little further for a change of scenery. For those who love the relaxing sounds of the sea and panoramic views, consider a rejuvenating stroll along Bukit Chermin Boardwalk.

We love boardwalks for how close it takes us to the sea and sick views that come without the sticky splashes of saltwater from a boat trip out. While we don’t have too many boardwalks in Singapore, Labrador Nature Reserve’s Bukit Chermin Boardwalk is a scenic one to explore with a 330M-long trail above the water.

Much like Pulau Ubin’s Chek Jawa, the boardwalk takes you along foothills, with conserved colonial bungalows and rocky shores on one side and a vast expanse of the sea on the other. Spot Sentosa and the tiny specks of cable cars gliding through the sky in the distance.

Low tide unveils the marine ecosystem that lies beneath the surface of the water, with seagrass beds and crabs scuttling about. High tide, on the other hand, will bring you close to the surface of the water thanks to how low the boardwalk is built. You’ll be close enough to spot otters and fishes – sometimes even large trout! Check out the tide timings on NEA before heading down.

Pro-tip: While this isn’t a fishing zone, fishing enthusiasts can head out to the Labrador Promenade to cast their poles.

Don’t forget to look up into the sky: with plenty of fish comes flocks of birds like the White-bellied Fish Eagle, Brahminy Kite and White-throated Kingfishers. Stay long enough and you might be able to catch a Little Tern diving into the water to snatch up a snack.

Aside from strolling and jogging, Bukit Chermin Boardwalk also has well-paved, flat surfaces, making it wheelchair and stroller-friendly. So take the entire fam – kids and elderly alike – to unwind here, in the great outdoors.

Getting there: Located within Labrador Nature Reserve, the coastal boardwalk forms part of the full 2.1KM Labrador Nature & Coastal Walk. Enter the trail from Berlayer Creek Boardwalk before breaking out of the mangrove to start on the coastal segment that is Bukit Chermin Boardwalk.

To get to Labrador Nature Reserve, alight at Labrador Park MRT Station and take Exit A.
