Beautiful, not so long walk! Partly unshaded. We shared the ride to get to the actual place. $12 one way. Or you can hire a bike. There is jetty too.

after a long walk or cycle from the jetty, taking a stroll on the bridge at Chek Jawa Wetlands become a very educational and resourceful tour. It is small, secluded away on the other side of the island but the beauty of it is a must see.

Although I walked my rental bike more than I rode it, I had a perfect day visiting Chek Jawa. Clouds blocked the worst of the sun and the sea breeze was magnificient. I'm not a huge nature lover, so the high point of my visit was relaxing on a rock watching the planes land at Changi. I couldn't have had... More

What a great place to walk around and see the sites. Low tide is supposed to be better as you see more in the ocean but I still loved it. There are two main paths, one an ocean walk and one in the mangroves, both are great so breathtaking. The mangrove part includes a tower that you can get a... More

you should definitely come here during low tide as all of the red shelled crabs are out in the mud. also go when it is sunny as it makes the scenery look truly special. if you ever go to Pulao Ubin, go to the Chek Jawa.

I like the treetop tower. It feels like you are at the top of the world. I find peace there and close to nature and away from the city. I dislike the mosquito there but if you use a good insect repellent, i'm sure you'll be fine.

In 2008 I had the good fortune of completing my undergraduate honours thesis at Chek Jawa, spending four months studying the intertidal community that calls the place home. I went back recently to see how the place was and I'm glad to see that the place was still teeming with life. I'm not sure if the guided mudwalks are still... More
