I had been going to Lorong Halus Wetland regularly but never quite make it to Coney Island. First of all, it is quite isolated and not a place for a woman to explore alone.
These are the pictures from our trip.
The dam actually connects the Lorong Halus area to Coney Island. Used to be lots of people fishing along the shore’s edge here. Past sightings, we saw a guy caught a small stingray as we walked past them. Please note that fishing is not allowed on Coney Island and no camping either. It is a nature park now.
Follow the trail into the forest and soon there is an opening to the beach.
Please be mindful of the environment and don’t throw your rubbish anywhere on the island and elsewhere.
An interesting observation. There are a few signboards before reaching the beach informing people not to hurt the resident 3-legged wild boar.
While exploring the beach, guess what we saw. Hoof prints…Hmmmm…interesting..
There is pros and cons in putting up such a sign. On one hand it informs people to be mindful and on the other hand gives information for the less emphatic people to catch the wild boar. If it only has three legs now, something bad must have happened in the past. So I appeal to those who see the wild boar, please leave it alone.
While at the beach, I spotted this gigantic tree root. If I am not mistaken, it is the sea almond tree. By the way, you can eat the nuts.
As you can see, debris clung to the roots.
This is the view from an opening in the forest trail. You can see the rocks below and in the distance – Pulau Ubin.
So, take the time to enjoy this semi-wild habitat before there is more development on Coney Island.
