Our tip for enjoying the outdoors with absolute peace of mind? Don’t forget that personal accident insurance.
Clear your weekend! We say it’s time for some family bonding. If you love the great outdoors, you’ll want to plan an outing at these places for fresh air, sunny rays and loads of fun. Here’s where to go for family-friendly adventures in Singapore. P.S. we’ve got tips on how to stay accident-free (including getting personal accident insurance).
1. Pasir Ris Park
Have you been curious about Singapore’s hidden wildlife? Join a mangrove night walk by The Untamed Paths for a tour of the mangroves with a naturalist guide. Keep an eye out for animal sightings and an exploration of Pasir Ris Park, a protected mangrove forest with many surprises!
2. Changi Beach
Skip the usual beaches in Singapore for Changi Beach. This under-the-radar adventure spot is home to hermit crabs, starshishes, anemones and other interesting creatures. Join an intertidal walking tour by The Untamed Paths to discover these animals with your kiddos!
You may have taken the kids to a cow farm or a goat farm, but what about an insect farm? Visit Insectta, Singapore’s first-ever insect farm. Get up close to see these interesting critters, which may be keen to a more sustainable future.
4. Coney Island
Head to the wilderness at Coney Island, which can be explored both on foot and via bike. Check out the natural Casuarina playground, have a picnic on the beach, discover hidden coastal trails, spot plenty of monkeys and birds, or take a guided NParks tour to learn more. One tip? Slather yourself with lots of mosquito and sandfly repellent to avoid that pesky itch.
5. Southern Islands
Take a trip to the Southern Islands via ferry from Marina South Pier. Feed tortoises or visit historic sites at Kusu Island, frolick at Lazarus Island’s beach and C-shaped lagoon, and end the day at St John’s Island. You won’t find any food on the islands, so do pack a picnic lunch (with lots of water!). If your kids have motion sickness, it’d be great to standby some pills for the ferry too.
Above all, safety first
Let’s admit it: anything can happen, especially when you’re getting down and gritty exploring the outdoors. Have absolute peace of mind with Tiq Personal Accident Insurance, which basically covers all your bases if you or your family get into an accident.
Met an unexpected fall?

Even better, you’ll also be able to claim up to $2,000 for physiotherapy should any of your family members require a couple of sessions. In addition, Tiq Personal Accident also offers a higher coverage of a $125,000 permanent disablement and death benefit if you opt for the minimum coverage (versus $100,000 for other insurers).
Oops! Caught dengue fever from Aedes mozzies?
Ah, those pesky mozzies that we just can’t seem to get rid of. Dengue cases are currently on the rise, and there’s no better time to invest in protection for yourself and your family members.
