Kusu & St John's Island

Islands off an island

What we say: 4 stars

These two little islands are just a 15-minute ferry ride from downtown Singapore but receive few visitors.

Formerly a quarantine centre, St John's is now a camper's paradise with rustic chalets (from S$50 a night), picnic ground and swimming lagoons.

Kusu Island is home to a turtle sanctuary and its Taoist temple is a site of religious pilgrimage each autumn. Facilities on both islands are limited and if you plan to stay all day you should pack a picnic.

Ferries run twice on weekdays and more frequently on weekends and holidays. The ferry stops at St John's first, waits 15 minutes, and then continues to Kusu.
