Ranked 69 among Places to Visit in Singapore
Ideal Time: 3-4 hours
Marina Barrage is at the southern tip of the main island, and a short walk away from Gardens by the Bay. This multi-purpose tourist attraction is rooftop dam and a park. Although its primary function serves as a dam, Marina Barrage is rather popular for recreation on its green, roof-top expanse. Visitors here especially enjoy kite flying the most, since the park is held on a rooftop space. Marina Barrage is also an excellent sunset viewing point. The elevated section of grass extends breathtaking panoramic views of the city with a backdrop of the sunset. Apart from the rooftop parks, recreational activities of boating, kayaking, windsurfing and dragon-boating take place in the Marina basin.
The Marina Barrage encompasses the main dam extending from Marina East to Marina South, forming Singapore's 15th reservoir. Tours for a batch of at least 80 people can be arranged to the Visitor Centre. What tourists love the most is the elevated space of green land which is easily accessible through an elevator from the main complex. Marina Barrage is on an ascended position with not many skyscrapers in its direct vicinity, making it the windiest area in the city, hence perfect for kite flying. Evenings at Marina Barrage are vibrant with kites of all colours, shapes and sizes on a beautiful framework of the city and the sun setting down. You can watch Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore Flyer, Cloud Forest and the CBD's skyscrapers, giving you tons of Instagram-worthy pictures.
