It is possible to visit many of the outlying islands of Singapore. Apart from Sentosa, which is reachable on foot, the other islands require taking a boat or ferry from various ferry terminals around Singapore.
The operating ferry terminals are:
Bumboats leave the Changi Point Ferry Terminal
for Pulau Ubin daily from sunrise to sunset. The fare is S$2.50 one way, and the boat leaves once there are 12 passengers, or a total sum of S$30.00 is collected.
The term "Southern Islands" refer to the eight main islands to the south of Singapore mainland. They are Kusu Island, Lazarus Island, Pulau Seringat, Pulau Tekukor, Saint John's Island, the two Sisters Islands and Sentosa Island. Together, they occupy an area of 5.58 sq km (2.15 sq mi), with the lion share going to Sentosa Island.
After development of Sentosa got underway, the Singapore Tourism Board began land reclamation to link Pulau Seringat with Lazarus Island in 2000. A causeway was also built linking Lazarus Island with Saint John's Island, enabling visitors to walk among the three islands. To visit these islands, take a ferry from the Marina South Pier. The ferry is operated by Singapore Island Cruise and Ferry Services. For more details, visit www.islandcruise.com.sg.
