Labrador Nature Reserve


This past weekend, we continued our wanderings through the Southern Ridges. On Sunday, we spent the early evening at Labrador Nature Reserve along Singapore’s southern coast. It’s one of my most favorite places in Singapore.

Labrador Nature Reserve is home to the mainland’s only rocky shore and coral reef (which avoided the destruction suffered by other coral reef communities on the main island due to land reclamation).

The area also played a significant role during World War II and the Reserve is dotted with war relics, including several imposing machine gun posts. That day, a TV crew was shooting scenes for what appeared to be a Tamil-language soap opera on one of the posts.

We lingered on the promenade and enjoyed the breeze and breathtaking views of the South China Sea, the Southern Islands, and the parade of sea vessels that line the horizon.
