Great place to ride your bike. 20 minutes ferry ride to the island and then you can ride from St. John Island to the next island via a bridge. Breathtaking views.

Most of the island is cut off due to repairs. Aspestos removal. There weren't as many cats as expected but I brought them food anyway and they seemed appreciative. You can go for a walk around, fish or lay on the beach. Hardly anyone around....More

It was nice trip to St. John’s island on Sunday. From Marina South Pier(there is MRT station, red line), took island cruise ferry, took around 30mins to get there. We still can see city view of Singapore from the island, but here is totally different...More

First stop of ferry ride. Big island. Couple of stretch of beach and mangroves. One small hill and a small marine park. Simple walk would do and I would recommend Kusu Island for family activity than St John’s.
