Went to St John's Island and Kusu island together on a weekday. Take the North-South line to the end and follow the exit to Marina South Pier. Tickets (round trip) is at $18/adult and $12/children(<12). Weekday only 2 ferry so take the 10am to St John and spend a few hours there and then take the 2.45pm ferry to Kusu. The final ferry from Kusu is 4.00pm (same ferry as it will just wait there). Should reach Marina South Pier at 4.30pm.
Weekends got more ferry trips and timing is much different.
Nothing much to do on Kusu island except visit the temple and the climb up the 152 steps to the Karamet. Good to combine the trip with St John's Island.

Excellent family picnic spot ! 45min ferry ride from Marina South pier. Lot of huts to sit and eat. Tranquil beach. One big pagoda. ideal getaway for family and friends. Take everything as there are no shops.

I know about Kusu Island is from google, when i looking for beach at Singapore. Than, i looking for some information from Tripadvisor and other blogs.

To get Kusu Island you just take the MRT to to the Marina South Pier Station, than buy the ticket, it's about 18$ and you can visit St. John Island and Kusu Island. Make a plan if you want to visit both islands, because there's scheduled ferry. It's different schedule between weekdays and weekend.

When you have arrive at Kusu Island you can find calm situation here. Many trees, waves and water sounds will make you streesless, i think hehehe... Oh ya, there's no food or drink stall here, you must bring it from Singapore.

Just enjoy your time, with take many pictures here, play at the beach, pray, or maybe make a wish, by throw some coins into the centre of the pond.

Find the other side of Singapore here...

An extremely peaceful island. A nice little beach by the side and a temple and a Shrine for devotees. We took the ferry from Marina South Pier and it was worth going there to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of the Singapore city.

Probably there is something religiously interesting there. But we wanted to have beach trip to st.Jones island which is nearby. The ferry to st.Jones was not operating that day and we went to Kusu instead. 4 hours wasted, misty in queue to ferry. Not worthy to go
