Starting 23 January 2020, Sentosa‘s beach-goers will get to catch the Magical Shores at Siloso, an addition to the island’s already bustling landscape. It is Singapore’s first beach light attraction, where play and art meet in the middle.
Spanning across 400 metres of the Siloso Beach, guests can experience vivid light, sound and mist effects, some of which are interactive. Adults and young ones alike can enjoy the ethereal experience that will happen every night from 7.30pm to 10.30pm, in 15 minute cycles.
Mr Chee Hong Tat, Senior Minister for Trade and Industry and Education, officially opened the attraction on the evening of 22 Jan, marking the beginning of the next step for Sentosa as they continue to strive towards creating the best experiences for guests.
Here’s a look at the key acts you can catch at Magical Shores at Siloso:
In this attraction, special effects are projected onto the sand, and guests can interact with the visuals by stepping in various spots of the projection. Look out for calming elements such as water flow, marine creatures and iridescent waves that change and bend whenever you come into contact on them.
It was so immersive, my colleague and I got a little too carried away watching the elements change. Before we knew it, we were the only ones left still prancing around in the sand.
Both mysterious and magnificent, the Islet Whispers features a cloud of fog and lights flowing over the waters, enveloping the scenery. An experience that engages your various senses, it’s easy to close your eyes and get lost in fantasy for just a little bit.
It’s not everyday you get to watch the trees come alive at night as a light and sound symphony take over the space. The lights change their colours to match the music’s intensity, creating the illusion of nature dancing in one accord.
We’ve touched on the sand, flora and waters, and now what’s left is none other than the skies. In a spell-bounding flourish of hues, multi-coloured beams light up the night sky—truly a sight to behold.
With all these attractions working in tandem to tingle your senses, you’ll find that the Magical Shores at Siloso light show makes for the perfect spot for family fun, a date with someone special, or simply alone time to wind down after a busy day.
