- Never knew Singapore has such beautiful place in the west end. Go there in the evening to view the stunning sunset and the lighthouse. Malaysia is just right across. Thereafter, enjoy a meal in the bistro.
Nearest MRT - Tuas Link, walk 300m through Raffles Marina towards the quay.Written 5 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Wow and Super wow. Finally get to visit this elusive place which is not generally open to public. This place is not accessible to public unless you are invited guest or you are a staff member. The event started with a tour around Singapore Maritime Gallery. The boat ride from Marina South Pier takes approx. 1 hour to Raffles Lighthouse (southern tip of Singapore). Upon arrival, the lighthouse is so majestic and the surroundings so serene. Noise is almost unheard of. It’s just you and mother nature.
You will need to abled body to climb 107 steps to the top of the lighthouse. The view is magnificent! However no pictures are allowed of the defence aerial towers (Vessel Traffic Information System or VTIS) and no usage of selfie stick at the top. The guides and MPA staff are welcome and friendly. Good coordination, and ferry ride smooth and safe.
MPA should really try to do this often. As Singaporeans, we are so naive that our waterways will not be safe if not for these lighthouses and dedicated men/women who stay apart from the families just to ensure safe sea passage way. Kudos to you. Thank you MPA for organising this.Written 2 April 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This is another historic feature to former working function of this hill. Today it seems odd to see a lighthouse here. Between the buildings and the extension of the shoreline you have to be in the colonial quarter to even see this. However, in the earlier years of the colony, this hill that served so much in the defense and administration also provide the lighthouse for ships at sea. Today it is simply a relic but it does serve as an historical symbol to the colony and its importance in trade.Written 11 October 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
