Day 1: Skyline Luge

A familiar attraction to many, Skyline Luge Sentosa is an exhilarating ride with four different exciting race tracks.

It’s like a go-kart. But instead of a motor, the luge cart powers on gravity as you descend down a slope.

The Skyline Luge starts off with a mellow journey up the hill on the Skyride, a four-seater chairlift that provides a scenic view of Singapore’s skyline. Then, the excitement comes as as you challenge yourself and zoom through sharp hairpin corners, tunnels and downward slopes.

For adventurous couples who are looking for more thrill, free-fall from Sentosa’s 50 meter-high Bungy platform.

The bungy jump is part of Skypark Sentosa by AJ Hackett, which includes a Skybridge walkway and Giant Swing. Attractions start from $15.

But if you are not ready for the real deal, hop onto the Giant Swing, which propels you towards Siloso beach at 120km/h with up to three passengers at once.

Lunch at Tanjong Beach Club

Tanjong Burger - Wagyu Beef Burger at Tanjong Beach Club

Stroll along the sandy beaches and refuel with a hearty meal at the Tanjong Beach Club.

Good riddance to the dark era when beach food meant overpriced dried sandwiches and diluted coffee. At Tanjong Beach Club, you get succulent burgers, elegant avocado toasts and addictive finger foods.

We highly recommend the Tanjong Burger ($30) for the perfect wagyu patty that is blessed with a smoky, charred crust and a juicy, meaty interior.

Opened in December 2021, this open-air panoramic gondola ride gives you a 360-degrees bird’s eye view of Sentosa and Keppel Bay.

The platform rotates gently and rises to a height of 35 metres above ground. Each ride lasts for 12 minutes and includes a cool drink that you can enjoy during the ‘flight to the skies’.

For a more memorable ride, visit the attraction near sunset, when the streaks of gold and orange illuminates the ride with dazzling lights.

This 11-storey high and 181 meters long scenic trek is a hidden gem that connects Siloso Point to Fort Siloso, a preserved coastal fort in Singapore.

Not your typical museum, this attraction features large cannons, military equipment and large coastal guns together with other war memorabilia.

Choose from three different routes: a basic route suitable for family bonding along Siloso and Palawan Beaches, a slightly adventurous Sentosa Imbiah Nature Trail and a challenging path with steeper slopes that lead to Sentosa Cove Village and Tanjong Beach.
