Marina Barrage Tours

Marina Barrage
Built across the mouth of Singapore’s Marina Channel, the Marina Barrage serves as both a dam that helps alleviate flooding and supplies 10 percent of the nation's water, and a popular leisure and recreation destination for locals and visitors to enjoy.

The most popular spot at the Marina Barrage is the elevated section of grass that looks out across the city and is ideal for picnics, sunset vistas, and photo opportunities. The Solar Park features one of the largest collections of solar panels in Singapore, with more than 400 panels providing the barrage’s electricity at night. Those interested in green issues will enjoy the Sustainable Singapore Gallery, which features six rooms exploring different aspects of the city’s environmental infrastructure using multimedia displays and interactive exhibits.

Those with a particular interest in Singapore’s eco-friendly culture should join a sustainable Singapore guided tour, which combines a visit to Marina Barrage with the NEWater Plant, Singapore River, and Supertree Grove at Gardens by the Bay. For a unique perspective of the barrage, join a kayak tour to Singapore Flyer, Gardens by the Bay, and Marina Bay Sands.

Insider’s Tip: A lack of any skyscrapers in the immediate area and the fact that it is right next to the sea makes the Marina Barrage the perfect spot for kite flying. Arrive any evening around sunset and you will see the sky filled with colorful kites set against the impressive backdrop of the city’s key landmarks.

Practical Info

If not arriving as part of an organized tour with transport included, the Marina Barrage can be reached via a path from Gardens by the Bay. There is an information center located in the main building that is open daily from 9am-9pm.
