More trips for public to visit Singapore"s first marine park at Sisters" Islands

SINGAPORE – More slots have been opened up to those who would like to visit Singapore’s first marine park at Sisters’ Islands. The first two guided trips at low tide in August, expanded to take 45 people up from the original 15, are already full. Such walks can be held only when there are suitably low tides.


The National Parks Board on Tuesday released dates for six more walks between September and December. These will each take up to 45 people and be opened for public registration in phases at www.nparks.gov.sg/sistersislandsmarinepark.


NParks will strike a balance between conservation and visitorship, said Minister of State for National Development Desmond Lee, such as by installing stepping-stones or boardwalks to give public access while protecting delicate intertidal areas.


He was speaking on the sidelines of a guided visit on Tuesday to the lagoon on the bigger of the pair that make up Sisters’ Islands.
