Punggol Beach : Blue Sky and Moody Weather

30 Aug

Punggol Beach – Rocky Shoreline

One of the unique feature in Singapore, Punggol Beach is known for its rocky shoreline. Natural or man-made – who knows? Punggol Beach is also the site for a massacre during the second world war. There is a signboard at Punggol Jetty indicating its historical impact.

Sunrise is on the right side of the jetty. For the early birds, get ready to point your camera in that direction. This is also the direction of Punggol Promenade and Punggol Point Walk.

I came by early one morning and watched the changing light till around 10am. By then, pointing the camera on the right side of Punggol Beach gave silhouettes and on the left side – blue sky. One morning, the dark clouds rolled in from the right side of the beach and before leaving, I took some photos of the coming storm. Other times I was here during low tides and others during high tides.

Enjoy the different moods and landscapes of Punggol Beach 🙂

      Hi Collexion. The only bus to Punggol Beach is bus no. 82 along Punggol Road. You can use the SBS online guide on the best route from Simei : Another route suggestion from Simei MRT : Alight at Tampines MRT, take bus 27 (no need to cross road), stop at Sengkang – Punggol Road (1st bus stop after exiting TPE), take overhead bridge or cross road to opposite bus stop. Take bus no. 82 all the way to Punggol Beach end. Hope that helps.
