Been to Cyrene: "Exceeding expectations"

"I was in anticipation after being able to go to Cyrene - expecting to see stuff on other intertidal shores of Singapore", says Tony.
Knobbly that seems to have raised its arm to "shake hands" -
remarks Tony of this photo he shared.

Been to Cyrene: "Go visit at least once in your life!"

"It's a reef? A sea reef? It's off an island? Oh, it's part of an island? Erm it has starfish and other cool looking animals, corals on it. Do I get to see a 'Nemo'?". Probably common questions if I were to ask a land lover who's never been to our country's smaller islands (Mainland Singapore, Tekong and Sentosa doesn't count!!).
Just one of Andrew's many gorgeous photos of Cyrene.
So begins Andrew as he shares awesome photos and stories of his trip to Cyrene on his One° North Explorers blog.
