Take a closer look at the rocks and tree snags encrusted with limpets and barnacles which are yummy cuisine for the pretty Spiral Melongena Snail.

Punggol Beach Intertidal Walk, 23 April 2022

Punggol Beach Intertidal Walk Little Day OutingPunggol Beach, while tucked away, in the northeastern region of Singapore, is home to much marine life which gets exposed at low tides. Take the chance to witness the explosion of colours in sponges – orange, blue, champagne, purple and green. Friends of Spongebob perhaps? They are nestled in the beach’s rocky area and also host to Brittle Stars.

Eager to find Mister Krabs? Look for Thunder Crabs, Flower Crabs, Purple Climber Crabs and of course Hermit Crabs. Try to spot the shy Onch Slug, which might be invisible to your eyes as it camouflages amidst the algae.

Other lifeforms encrusting the rocks include tiny mussels, fan worms, rock oysters and barnacles. Check out the hard corals, sea urchins, ascidians, clams, drills and more!

Dates & Times:
23 April (Saturday), 9.00 am to 11.00 am
