This place sits about 3km from the main town of Pulau Ubin, so rent a bicycle and follow the signs. Once you get there bikes are not allowed so you need to head in on foot. First off you will come to the reception area...More

This is a very easy place to find. When you get off the bum boat, the spotlessly clean toilets are straight ahead and the bike rental shops are a 1 minute walk to the left. Tip: visit Pulau Ubin on a weekday to avoid the...More

Chek Jawa offers the little ones a good science lesson to know about our eco system. You will definitely enjoy your time here but do take note of the tide timings.

Because they are there. Why go to Chek Jawa? You wouldn't go out of your way for it. But you won't have to as you are already on Pulau Ubin and it is 80m down the road. Top surveyor. Solid jetty. Imaginatively named island.
