SENTOSA > TRANSPORTATION AROUND THE ISLAND
[an error occurred while processing this directive]

INTRODUCTION:
Getting around Sentosa Island is easy and pleasant. One should not be daunted by the thought of walking around the island to get to various attractions because the public transportation is very efficient and free-of-charge. Although, for the record, I think walking on the footpaths amidst cool green foliage is not a bad idea after all. In fact, I even saw some tourists and locals were cycling to get around the island.

TOURIST BUS SERVICE:
There are 5 different bus services that bring you to various attractions on Sentosa Island. You may need to change bus at certain stops to get to another attraction on a different route. The details are listed below:

TAXI:
There are a number of Blue Comfort cabs plying various routes throughout the island. The cab service is usually required by hotel guests who are staying in the island's many resorts. If you are visiting the island for a leisure day-trip, you are unlikely to find the need to flag down a taxi in Sentosa.

BEACH TRAIN:
Surprisingly there are two mini train (which is actually a tram-like bus) services in Sentosa. They are called the "beach train" because they transport the tourists to various beaches on the island. One train line operates between Siloso Beach to Beach Carpark and vice versa, while another train line serves passengers going between Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach. Both trains operate from 0900 - 1900 hrs daily.
