Quiet small island about 1/2hr by boat from Singapore. There are a few small beaches with some shelters and are nice to swim and relax at. Note that there are no shops there so you have to bring al of your own food and water.

A visit to Kusu Island on a weekend away from the city chores can be very refreshing. Nestled between nature it refreshes the mind. This is also a holy place.

The island itself is very small. One walk around the whole island wouldn’t take more than 10min. In the centre of the island there are a few tombs to see located at the top of a few steps.

No. You need take everything - water and food. You have some shops at Marina South pier. But nothing at St. John and Kusu.
