West Entrance to Coney Island

Coney Island (Pulau Serangoon) is a 133-hectare piece of land located off the northeastern coast of Singapore within the town of Punggol.

This was once owned by the Haw Par brothers of Tiger Balm fame. It changed hands in the 1950s when it was sold to Indian businessman Ghulam Mahmood who harbored intentions of transforming it into a resort in the style of the amusement park at Coney Island, New York.

These plans fell through and it found its way back into the possession of the Singapore government in the 1970s.

This tranquil island, even though just one hundred metres away from Singapore at its closest point, the island has had relatively few visitors.
