Islands of Singapore

Check Hotel Room Rates in Singapore



There are numerous islands and islets located surrounding the main island of Singapore. Apart from Sentosa Island, which has been turned into a major recreational destination, many of these islands remain uninhabited. Some of these are the site of major industries such as petroleum refinery and shipyards. Such islands are off limits to all except authorized personnel.

On this page I list out the natural as well as man-made islands surrounding Singapore with the information that I have gathered about each of them. Also listed here are former islands that have since been connected to the Singapore mainland.

Land reclamation is an on-going process in Singapore, resulting in the expansion of land area on both the main island of Singapore as well as many of its outlying islands.
