Been to this island with wife couple of days back. This is a perfect place for relaxing with shelter by the beach. Took ferry from Marina South pier. First ferry leaves at 10AM. Ferry goes to St.John island first and then to Kusu island. Please be cautious, this island has mosquitos. Advisable to bring mosquito repellent.

The maps for this island need updating! There is no where to eat. Not much else to do except wait for the ferry.

To many locals in Singapore and as far away as Thailand and Indonesia, many of the older folks have heard of the Chinese 9th Lunar Month pilgrimage to the Tua Pek Kong (Da Bo Gong) temple in Kusu Island. No one seems to know about the origin of this festival but it has been going all the world. During this... More

My daughter and I took the Singapore Island Cruise ferry to St John's and Kusu Islands. What a blast! We did the whole thing in a little over 2 hours, which was fine. But had we known how lovely each spot is, we would definitely have taken a picnic, our swimsuits/towel and planned for a longer day! There are several... More

Quite a good way to while away the day and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. See tortoises and monkeys on this very small island. Take plenty of food and water as there is nothing to buy there. Worth the trip but two hours was enough for us.

Want a break from the hustle and bustle of the city? Then Kusu island is the place to head for. Beautiful beaches, safe swimming and easy walks with plenty of rest locations! Make sure you take plenty to drink and don't forget to see the turtles and visit the temple.

Kusu Island is one of the Southern Islands in Singapore, located about 5.6 kilometres to the south of the main island of Singapore. The name Kusu means "Tortoise" or "Turtle" in Chinese; the island is also known as Peak Island or Pulau Tembakul in Malay. From two tiny outcrops on a reef, this island was enlarged and transformed into an... 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.
