Marina at Keppel Bay

Marina at Keppel Bay

Recently, I visited a lesser-known Marina at Keppel Bay, which is located at Keppel Island (Singapore). I knew about this place from some friends a while ago but only managed to explore now. For the location, please view it here (Google Maps).

Yachts lined up at their berths against the iconic bridge. At the background, you can see the cable cars leading to HarbourFront Centre (building on the left) and after which to Sentosa. This is a looping service where the starting point is as The Jewel Box at Mount Faber.

Not sure what is this? But I suppose it’s an equipment used for maintenance of the yacht.

Archipelago Samui Pint S$16++ and Mango Margarita S$16++ at Privé Bakery Cafe. We couldn’t get the best seats (those facing the waterfront) as they were already reserved. If you are thinking to relax here, I suggest placing a reservation early.
