We went to Pulau Ubin and Chek Jawa based on the recommendation of a friend who lived in Singapore for several years. When we arrived on the island, one of the naturalists recommended we walk to Chek Jawa rather than renting a bike. Based on our experience, if you have the time and ability, I would strongly recommend walking out... More

Great serene place to visit. Just a board walkalong the Ubin coast. Enjoyed climbing the tower to view the sight of the sea, the land and the sky.

Took me some time from the jetty to Chek Jawa by bicycle as the distance is quite far and there are some up and down slopes which could be a little bit difficult for someone that doesn't cycle very often. I'm pretty confused with the map given by the bicycle rental shop, but it is alright as there are clear... More

The other side of Singapore. Never knew Singapore had such a place- If even the wild boars are abundant it must be good. Round trip from jetty(walking) is around 2 hours- a clear must visit if you are in ubin. You wont regret

This was such a surprise and a must see! Even thought it was raining hard all afternoon, the cycle ride was fun through the rainforest to get the the mangroves and the viewing platforms and jetty are just brilliant!

A nice place hides in the big city. Just walk and relax. You may encounter a bit of happiness and surprise. A short boat ride of $2.50.

This place is in Pulau Ubin. While you spend a whole day in the island, you should check this as well. Really nice to have a walk above the sea, you can hear the sound of waves and have a different view for Singapore. Bikes have to be left out.

A nice place to visit But nothing special to those who have already visited similar places. The only attractions to my opinion is the Mangrove trees with their unique roots and when the tide is low- then you can see how looks like the underwater surface.

The place is great. Well maintained without touching the nature. One can spend the evening seeing the water on the jetty with nice wind blowing. Good for couple as well as family visit. You get the drinks vending machine. The retreat house built long time back during colonial era is also a good place to visit. Happy Experiencing Life !!!

A really nice place, easy to acces due to the boardwalk. And the outlook is close as well, a nice shady place but the boardwalk was quite short.
