Why Changi Boardwalk is special ?
The Changi Boardwalk is located at Changi Point the eastern most part of Singapore. The boardwalk faces north-northwest to northeast for much of its length. It connects Changi Beach Club in the western end to the Changi Sailing Club at its midpoint and the Changi Point Ferry Terminal in the eastern end.
The Changi Boardwalk was conceptualised by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) as part of the Singapore Green Plan 2012 to enhance Changi point. The first phase construction of the boardwalk, comprising the western sections of the boardwalk, started on 29 October 2001 and was completed on 15 August 2003, costing S$3.5 million. The second phase construction of the boardwalk, comprising the eastern sections, was completed in five stages from 2004 to 2006. The total cost of environmental improvement works for Changi Point – including the S$5.4 million boardwalks and S$8 million improvements to the Changi Point Ferry Terminal – was about S$16.7 million.

Pleasant and relaxing walk. Can be quite warm but breeze from the sea helps a lot. Can see some squirrels and sea life if lucky!
A pleasant 2km walk end-to-end in mornings & evenings. Not much shade except @ Cliff Walk. Only exits r Changi Beach Club, Changi Sailing Club & Changi Village carpark. Would b nicer w more benches
