Sentosa has a fabulous natural shore!

view of sentosa shore

This marvellous shore lies beneath Fort Siloso,
between Underwater World and Rasa Sentosa.

Besides magnificent rocky structures and amazing coastal plants,
the shores teem with seagrasses, hard and soft corals
and all the usual creatures that can be found in such habitats.

A volunteer-effort was made to
scientifically survey the seagrasses of this shore on 15 Jul (Sat).
