Changi Beach Intertidal Walk

Wednesday 20 February from 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm, my family participated in the intertidal walk along Changi Beach just next to Changi Ferry Terminal (note: not Changi Point Ferry Terminal). Opposite the beach is Pulau Tekong. We were guided by Mr Robert Heigermoser, creator of (Ulu Singapore)

To do this walk, the tide must be low for us to see the marine lives on the shores of Changi Coast. It is not often for tide to be low during 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm window in a year when it is still daylight and the weather is not so hot. Yesterday was one.

To fully appreciate this walk, we must definitely get wet with our shoes on. We get to see and touch the marine lives, such as sea cucumbers, anemones, hermit crabs, Fan shell clams, snails, sea urchins, sand stars, sea grass and sea weed, among others.

The guide helped to explain what we were able to see during this two-hour exploration.

This is my second intertidal walk. The first one was at Sentosa.
