It's easier to reach this location (orange circle) from Kranji than to struggle through the soft mud from the Mandai side. I've plotted out the points where I saw Beccari's seagrass today. Here's the kml file from my Google Drive. The points include photos of the Beccari's seagrass seen at that point. It seems you can only see the photos if you load the kml file on your Google Earth. The photos don't show up on Google Drive.
Perepat trees (Sonneratia alba) all about the same height with meadows of the Critically Endangered Beccari's seagrass (Halophila beccarii) at their feet.
Andy Dinesh in Dec 10, I saw these seagrasses in Feb 2011.

Api-api bulu (Avicennia rumphiana), Api-api putih (Avicennia alba) and Perepat (Sonneratia alba).
The large gnarly Bakau kurap (Rhizophora mucronata) was also blooming! The magnificent Api-api bulu (Avicennia rumphiana) is still there.
The Sea hibiscus (Hibiscus tiliaceus) were blooming too.
