Sentosa lowers weekend drive-in rates; streamlines entry charges for cars and taxis
Good news for those who drive in frequently into Sentosa Island – Sentosa Development Corporation has simplified island admission fees for guests entering in cars and taxis, making it cheaper now to drive-in on weekends and streamlining their entry charges.

With the latest changes, there are now various ways Singapore residents can enter Sentosa for free or at lower rates.
Guests who enjoy free island admission include:

- Organised school and community groups entering on chartered coaches during weekdays (excluding public holidays),
- Guests strolling in via the Sentosa Boardwalk
