Here is a visual documentation of a weekend walk we did to Coney Island. Starting from the… er… ‘charmingly named’ Compassvale, we made a beeline to Punggol Jetty and then crossed over to Coney Island by foot. On first glance it looks like a popular haunt for groups of school children and families going for a picnic, but if you step off the path and to the beach, you’ll find the crowds thinning down… to practically nothing. The island is quite sizeable and most visitors seem to cycle on the paths rather than to stumble over driftwood and sand. A rather beatifically peaceful tropical park with strangely neat and new paved paths, huge airy casuarina pine trees, tall grasses, marred only by the brightly coloured plastic pollution from the oceans. At the boundaries of the island, CCTV cameras and other metallic monitoring devices stick out incongruously between sea apple trees and coastal shrubbery, silently watching the waters between Singapore and Malaysia at all times.
