Punggol Point is located in Punggol, north-east Singapore.

It is reached from Upper Serangoon Road which begins in the Potong Pasir area by Punggol Road to a dead end. Punggol Point was surrounded by seafood restaurants in the 1980s and the 1990s which were very popular back then. The area is currently developing.

The jetty area has undergone extensive redevelopment,[1] and reopened as Punggol Point Park on 20 November 2011.[2] A new road named Punggol Point Road leads into a public carpark for visitors.

World War II massacre[edit]

In 1942, 400 Chinese civilians were massacred here as part of the Sook Ching Massacre. The place has been declared as a national heritage site. There is a plaque commemorating this incident.[3]
