Be captivated by the bright lights of the Singapore Flyer and the Central Business District skyline against the sky at sunset, reflected in the still waters of the Marina Barrage. This Reservoir in the City was created with three key benefits, to provide water supply, flood control and a lifestyle attraction.

Fun in the sun

Great place for kite flying with strong breezes. Have a nice picnic under the stars on the rooftop garden of the barrage with the views of the ocean as well as a backdrop.

So one day we got a really interesting and numerous taxi driver to take us to Gardens by the Bay. En route he showed us the Marina Barrage and explained how by building the structure the Singapore authorities have created a huge fresh water reservoir. This is in order no to be reliant on Malaysia for their water supplies.

Great place for kite flying, photoshoot & picnic. Done my wedding shoot here on Sept 2016 because of the awesome view. Been here quite a few times. There's also restaurant and you can also learn about NeWater here too!

This is a great spot for a relaxation view especially for sunset view. A great place to simply take a stroll, flying a kite, or just for the view. It is also a short walk to Garden By the Bay as well as the Cloud Dome and the Flower Dome. Along the way, there is a water park which is... More

If you can choose a clear sunny day (normally the mornings are best as it rains in the afternoons) you can get a marvellous view across Singapore with a view across the Business and Financial district. allow a couple of hours and you will find your visit worthwhile

It's great to come here on a sunny day. The view is amazing! This was the highlight of a whole day in the bay area for me

Marina Barrage is probably one of the best place to see the city skyline and one which is not often featured in tourist guides. Absolutely love this place especially on weekdays evening when it's not too crowded. Bring a mat, drinks & a book to chill or a camera to capture beautiful sunset or the city skyline.

If you are a photographer, then this should be the place to go as it gives a unique panoramic view of the central business district with the major tourist attractions in one image. Do be aware that this is a security sensitive area. I was told by the security personnel that if I want to video tape, permission is needed... More

None of the sightseeing list might feature this as a tourist hotspot but This deserves to be a must visit for its uniqueness and the way it's built. It's a getaway for many Singapore families to laze around and do a lunch party. You will see kids flying kites, grown ups enjoying their drinks and frisbee and fitness freaks running... More

There is absolutely nothing to do when you reach the Marina Bay Barrage because there is actually not much to do there except maybe the flower dome or the beautiful nature which you can see in reservoirs

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
