Coney Island Park - Parks & Nature Reserves

ABBEY: We set out Coney Island tour on a Saturday after Wilma's office. So we headed to Punggol Bus Interchange, took Bus 84 and alighted at Punggol Road End. You will know that it is time to alight as most of the passengers will do the same :) 

We rented 2 bikes from Go Cycling at 8SGD per hour for 2 hours. The third hour is free. But there are other shops for bike rent. Biking at moderate speed and following the main path, you can cover the 2.4km-island end to end within less than an hour. 

Going back, we did our sightseeing; their beaches, boardwalk, and the serene and quiet surroundings. Unfortunately, we didn't catch a sight of the brown cow only snake, lizard, and turtles. We're not able to dine as well to eat white bee hoon. The queue is so looooooong. It was fun; I'm able to ride a bike again and breathe fresh air.


Coney Island Entrance Gate
WILL: Coney Island opened its gate to public since last year and I am apologising for not  checking it out sooner than usual. Hahaha. This is an island just off the tip of Punggol area. 

So what can you expect while roaming this island? Well, I am recommending for you to bring your own bike or rent one for $8/hour. The nest time go in there is 4pm, the sun is not that hot because of the shades that were provided by the trees. 

You might see a cow, monkeys, lizards or just like me, I saw a snake (arggh). In my estimation, that is a three-foot snake. Yikes! 

You can check out their boardwalks and beaches. Well, after I saw a snake, we went straight home and never visited what is up for any turns. Hehe. 

Cycling is a good exercise for our heart. If you love nature and like to see new parks of Singapore, go in here, you will not regret to see a fabulous scenery.
