Dragon's Teeth Gate at Labrador Nature Reserve

About Dragon's Teeth Gate and the Red Beacon

Once a natural granite outcrop that stood in the mouth of Keppel Harbour, Dragon’s Teeth Gate or 'Long Ya Men' served as the gateway to Keppel Harbour’s western entrance and was a navigational guide.

The landmark was blown up in 1848 to widen the channel for modern ships. Today, a symbolic replica of the original stands in the southern part of Labrador Nature Reserve. It was installed in 2005 to celebrate the 600th anniversary of Chinese explorer Admiral Zheng He’s maiden voyage.

Just past this feature is a red steel beacon. This red beacon is part of Singapore's maritime history and served as a navigational guide to mark the shortest distance between Sentosa and the mainland.
