The Marine Magic -A visit to the Marine life park

Find the world’s finest wilderness beneath the blue roof! Bring your kids to explore a variety of sea creatures by sticking their nose on the glass wall. Marine Life Park on Sentosa Island is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island. Situated in the southern part of Singapore, this 20-acre park is home for two of the major attractions. The S.E.A. Aquarium and the Adventure Cove Water Park in the Marine life park are the most frequently visited attractions in Singapore. Let’s deep dive ( no pun intended) into the Marine life park.

Earlier, this was also known as the largest oceanarium of the world from the year 2012 to 2014. Later it was surpassed by the Chimelong Ocean Kingdom. Another centre of attraction in the Marine life park is Dolphin Island. It showcases the majestic bottlenose dolphins. This amazing destination is by far the best place to discover the wonders of the deep. It has an additional benefit that it is on a walking distance from many of Sentosa’s hotels and other attractions.
