Stretching out for about 2.2 km along the coastline, the Changi Point Coastal Walk, sometimes referred to as the Changi Boardwalk, is an easy waterfront jaunt. Easy enough for kids to do (not so suitable for prams unless you are prepared to trudge up and down stairs with it), the Coastal Walk provides views of the waters out towards Johor.
There are several entry points to Changi Point Coastal Walk. The easiest is next to Changi Ferry Point Terminal, the same ferry terminal where you can catch a bumboat to Pulau Ubin.
From here, a boardwalk leads off towards the west and the rest of Changi Point Coastal Walk.
Changi Point Coastal Walk
There are six distinct sections that make up Changi Point Coastal Walk
From the Creek to Beach, Past Boats and Cliffs
You start off at Creek Walk and head past the Civil Service Club (Changi). From here, you will be able to spot the bumboats leaving Changi Ferry Point Terminal, heading out to sea.

The next section is the Beach Walk. Here, the boardwalk turns into a path and, as the names implies, it is located beside the beach.
Sailing Point Walk is named for the Changi Sailing Club, a club that was originally started by British soldiers. Make your way past the pretty boats and go on to the Cliff Walk.
Climb the stairs at the Cliff Walk and follow the boardwalk to Kelong Walk.
Changi Boardwalk from a Kelong into the Sunset
Disappointingly, Kelong Walk does not have a kelong or over-water fishing platform. Instead, like a kelong, it is built on stilts over the water. This makes it a popular spot for anglers to cast their lines. This section of the Changi Boardwalk takes you past Changi Beach Club, another institution started by British soldiers.
Beyond Kelong Walk is the last section of the Changi Boardwalk, Sunset Walk.
It seems slightly counter-intuitive that a boardwalk in the Northeast of Singapore would be named Sunset Walk. However, when you get to the end, you see why. Sunset Walk has an unobstructed view towards the waters to the West. In the evening, you be able to spot the lights of Punggol from here.
Sunset Walk also marks the end of the Changi Point Coastal Walk. Take note that there is no way to exit the boardwalk from Sunset Walk.
Instead, you will have to retrace your steps back to the Kelong Walk where there is an exit point to Gosport Road.
Alternatively, you can make your way back to Changi Village via another 45 minute to 1 hour jaunt along Changi Point Coastal Walk.
