If you're new to the quarry game, Singapore Quarry is the perfect beginner's quarry to explore as it's easy to get to and there are great views here too. Once used for mining granite, the quarry was filled with water. The towering cliffs and reflecting pool of water will definitely make you feel like you're somewhere overseas.
There's a platform at Singapore Quarry where you can admire the view and take a breather. As the platform extends over the water, it'll feel as though you're floating on the water. Plus, there are a few seats here for you to take a break while on your hike. In case the weather gets too hot, head over to the sheltered pavillion nearby!
