Quite a nice, small island

This island is much smaller than St John's, so if you go there just to take pictures of the temple and enjoy one of the beaches it's fine. If you want to walk around it is a bit... read more

This island is much smaller than St John's, so if you go there just to take pictures of the temple and enjoy one of the beaches it's fine. If you want to walk around it is a bit small. It's definitely beautiful though. Note that the hawker centre is closed, hence be sure to bring your own food and drinks!

It is a small size of island, and nothing much on it. But it is a good place for people to get a peaceful and calm mind. Please noted that the food court is closed, so please bring or lacked your own foods when you visit there.

I visited this quaint little Temple island during Kusu Pilgrimage Season, which runs from 1st October to 30th October this year in 2016, so the island was super packed with people burning incense and paper to pray at the Da Bo Gong Temple to the God of Prosperity. Therefore, if you detest crowds and prefer a peaceful environment it's probably... More

I did this on a weekday and used Singapore Island Cruises. The ticket can be bought on the day at ferry terminal at Marina South Pier. This is now directly accessible by MRT. The ticket is $18 for an adult return. On a weekday, it departs Marina South at 10am and 2pm and takes around 20 minutes to St John's.... More

This is another member of the southern islands in singapore. This island is smaller compared to st johns and lazarus island. You can reach here by taking the ferry from st johns island before heading back to singapore. This island is a bit more maintained than lazarus island. There are more picnic tables here too. It gives you more of... More

You have to take a ferry from the Marina South Pier Terminal. There is no need to book in advance. In peak season also, there are ample availability. From Singapore, it first halts at St Johns after 45 minutes then another 30minutes it takes to reach Kusu. Please check in for photos to get a better idea. There is no... More

firstly..... bring all the portable fans you can physically bring. It is literally so hot I melted into the ground. Things you can do there are very limited to picnics, photography and praying etc. It is a very nice place for people who wants a scenery to paint or a picture to take. There is a small stall for drinks... More

Kusu Island has been undergoing renovations, and unlike St. John's nor Lazarus, you'll feel like more at Sentosa here. The fact that these constructions made the island usable (you at least can buy water - even if overpriced - and there are shower facilities for swimmers) is nice as long as it's not turned into a smaller version of the...

I took visiting relatives to Kusu Island and it so worth it. It is SGD$18 per person. You stop at St John's Island first, but I prefer Kusu. Kusu is very small, with a wonderful set of clean beaches and water. We did not have any sandflies. We went to the beach on same side as the dock. Water was... More
