The self-guided walk comprises 3 segments: Alexandra Garden Trail, Berlayer Creek mangrove trail, and Bukit Chermin Boardwalk.

The 300m Bukit Chermin Boardwalk is an elevated boardwalk that connects the Berlayer Creek mangrove trail and Labrador Nature Reserve to the promenade at Reflections at Keppel Bay.

Take the coastal boardwalk to cross the mouth of Berlayer Creek and skirt the coastal foothill of Bukit Chermin.

During high tide, you can spot schools of fish from the low-lying boardwalk, and observe the seagrass beds and marine life on the mudflats during low tide.

The 5.61-hectare Berlayer Creek mangrove trail is part of a larger network of habitats snaking through the Southern Ridges to the waterfront.

Berlayer Creek is one of two remaining mangroves in the south of mainland Singapore. The trail passes through mangroves, rocky shore and mudflats.

The area is rich in biodiversity with 60 bird species, 19 species of fish and 14 true mangrove plants recorded here. It also has a high density of some 50 species of molluscs.

You can extend your walk from Berlayer Creek to the Alexandra Garden Trail.

This 830m trail traverses up from Port Road to Alexandra Road and connects to Alexandra Arch, Forest Walk and Gillman Village.
