Between Singapore’s main island and Malaysia lies on one of the only parts of the country almost free from urban development. Taking its name from the granite tiles it produced during the 1960s, the island of Pulau Ubin has a population of only a few hundred residents. The quarry that once provided the islands livelihood has been returned to nature, and today Pulau Ubin is known for its untouched natural beauty. Visitors to the island can experience one of the last kampong (traditional villages) in Singapore, follow a boardwalk through a mangrove forest or see native wildlife at Chek Jawa.
Rent a bike as you leave the ferry. It's the most fun and popular way to see the island. There are some taxis on the island and while it is possible to traverse the island on foot you will have more opportunity to spend time at the island’s attractions on a bike. Ride through the tiny village on the island. Meet the locals, dine on traditional cuisine or relax with a drink in the peaceful township.
Make your way to Chek Jawa, the most popular destination on the island, to see the natural beauty of the wetlands. Five thousand years ago this area was a coral reef and today it is one of the most pristine locations in Singapore. Look for sea hares, cuttlefish and octopus as you relax on the secluded beaches. Follow boardwalks through mangrove forests and be alert for birdlife and local pigs. Climb the observation towers along the way for views across the island and to the city of Singapore in the distance.
Pulau Ubin is located a short boat ride from Changi Beach on the east side of Singapore Island. These "bumboats" operate during daylight hours. Just turn up at the ferry terminal; the boat leaves whenever there are ten or so visitors ready to go, which is usually only a short wait. There is some accommodation on the island for visitors wanting to spend the night, and camping is popular.
