Nature in Singapore – Labrador Coastal Walk for Nature Lovers

Labrador Nature Reserve Park

Labrador Nature Reserve is an oasis of tranquility and natural wonders.  A great place for nature lovers.  The Labrador Nature Reserve is very big, if you go up to the hill, you will find old cannon used in the world war II and some old tunnels.

Old Cannon on top of the hill in Labrador Reserve Park

My recent visit was more towards the coastline – the Sentosa direction and it was an evening full of surprises along the way as I have not paid a visit for the past few years.

Long Ya Men/Dragon’s Teeth Gate

The huge stone is the symbolic replica of Long Ya Men in Labrador Park.   The original Long Ya Men  served as a key navigational maker for Zheng He’s ships entering Singapore’s main port of Keppel Harbour.  However, the British blew the Long Ya Men up to widen the gateway into the harbour channel.  The replica was re-created in 2005 to commemorate Singapore’s Celebration for the 600th Anniversary of Zheng He.

Reflections@Keppel Bay Condo

Taking some snaps with one of the most beautiful condo in Singapore, the Reflections@Keppel Bay Condo before I started my coastal walk.

Beware of red ants under big tree

I saw this huge tree and thought it was very nice to take a cool picture and walked closer to the tree.  Before I started to pose, plenty of ants started to bite my feet.  A word of warning, don’t go near any big tree to pose for picture.

I started walking on the wooden bridge which is facing the Sentosa Island direction. There are benches for visitors to take a rest in the middle of the bridge.  It is a great place to jog or stroll with family and loves one.

Colonial House at Tamarind Hill

The old colonial house is actually a Thai restaurant located at the top of a hill. How beautiful!  It is not accessible from the wooden bridge here.

Marina at Keppel Bay

I thought I was stepping into another world when I reached Marina at Keppel Bay.  Plenty of big and small yachts park at the berth.  The Marina house 168 berth and to me, it definitely looks like world class marina.

May be is time for me to get a boat too, yes! Paper Boat! 🙂

Met Minister Vivian Balakrishnan & his beautiful wife

Guess who I bumped into in this wonderful evening?  Yes, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Vivian Balakrishnan and his beautiful wife.  I look so midget and cartoon beside them. 🙂 🙂

Condo at Caribbean Keppel Bay

More of the waterfront Condo in this area. The water is quite green and colorful flowers are planted along the waterfront.  Truly beautiful!

Bridge lead you to Kepple Island

If you walk further up, there is beautiful bridge link you to Keppel Island.

Keppel Island – Pulau Hantu

I have finally reached Keppel Island, formerly known as Pulau Hantu/ Ghost Island.  Don’t think there is any Hantu/Ghost exist these days, now it houses more of high end restaurants for the “rich ghost” 🙂

Observe the green color neon light and my belt are quite matching.

Keppel Bay Bridge

Do you know Kepple Bay Bridge is the longest cable-stayed bridge in Singapore, spanning 250 metres across the strait linking the private Keppel Island to mainland.

Sky getting darker but there are lights along the wooden bridge back to the car park in Labrador Park.

How to get there?

Use Circle Line, alight at Labrador Park MRT station.  I suggest to take a taxi to reach the park as there is long walk of 30 min walk to the park.
