Well worth the cycle journey from the jetty. Well signposted and a couple of water sellers on the way. Leave your bike at the end entrance and follow the signs round the 2 boardwalks. On my way back I saw a couple of monkeys and a wild boar.

A place away from crowded city, beautiful walk ways through the sea, and the cycling with friends was a memorable experience.

Cycled almost an hour from Pulau main town to Chek Jawa, the road going down was a steep one but I was amazed by the views along th way especially the mangroves and House # 1 which is the only working fireplace in Singapore as of writing. Make sure you wear the right clothing and shoes when you cycle to... More

Get a bike from the main jetty in Pulau Ubin and follow the signs to Chek Jawa. It's about a 3km+ ride, on road then a trail with some slopes to tackle. At the entrance, you have to park the bikes and continue on foot. We walked around the mangrove swamp and up the wooden viewing tower then on the... More

We have been to the Chek Jawa Wetlands for a couple of times, but this was the first time we went in a large group of 14 comprising the young (4 years of age) and elderly (70+). From the jetty on Pulau Ubin, you can either walk, cycle or take a taxi there. For this trip, we chose to walk... More

The best way to see Chek Jawa up close is to join one of the NPark guided tours, which take place once or twice a month during low tide. These intertidal tours are extremely popular and usually get snapped up within few hours when booking is opened. The tours are conducted by NPark volunteers who are very knowledgeable and passionate... More

This was the best place on Pulau Ubin - no cyclists around scaring away the wildlife (although a hoard of screaming scouts ruined it for us). We saw all sorts of birdlife on our walk, and make sure you look down at the mudflats for the tiny crabs with massive claws. Beautiful place. I even braved the lookout tower to... More

At Pulau Ubin this is a must visit. You can take a boardwalk tour through the mangrove forest and along the coast to see the most amazing flora and fauna.

It has been awhile since I have been on P.Ubin & I had a good time exploring the Chek Jawa area. The boat ride to the island ws $3 per person & $2 per bike, one way. We rent bicycles near the jetty. My "newer" bikes was going for $12 while my partner's was $10. The cycle to the entrance... More

We enjoyed the trail itself and the natures gifts to the island. The people, sceneries, roads, muds, mangroves, mosquitoes no! But we will be back for sure!
