Pulau Ubin

Eco-Tourism and Adventures in Singapore

This is one of Singapore's several offshore islands which has been left more or less untouched by urban development. Getting there is all part of the fun - take a bus or taxi to Changi Point jetty, which is about 40 minutes from the city centre.

Then, take a bum-boat ride to the island. The boats leave when they're full and charge SG$ 1.50 for a one-way ride. There is no admission fee to the island.

Spend the whole day on Pulau Ubin, dividing your time between biking on the rocky trails, bird-watching, swimming on the beach and trying out the fresh seafood.

Bikes can easily be rented , though don't expect a state-of-the-art 10-speeder; the rusty, rickety machines on offer are part of the island's charm. You'll pass mangrove swamps, coconut and rubber plantations, an unused quarry lake, even a Buddhist temple. Don't be surprised to see wild pigs roaming the island, or huge flying fox bats at night.
