Whether you choose to charter a ferry or hop on one of our scheduled trips, the Southern Islands promise a day of fun in the sun. From picnics by pristine beaches to exploring various sights, there is something for everyone! Here are the 4 Southern Islands that Singapore Island Cruise offers ferry services to and from.

Kusu Island is located around 5.6 kilometres south of the main island of Singapore. In Chinese, Kusu means “Turtle” or “Tortoise”. The island is also known in Malay as Pulau Tembakul, or Peak Island.

This island grew from two little outcrops on a reef to an 85,000-square-meter island leisure resort.



St.John’s Island, formerly named Pulau Sakijang Bendera, is one of Singapore’s Southern Islands. It is situated around 6.5 kilometres south Singapore’s main island.



Lazarus Island, which is also referred to as Pulau Sekijang Pelepah, is a small part of Singapore’s Southern Islands that is connected to St John’s Island by a causeway. The island is known for its tranquil and beautiful beaches.



Sisters’ Islands are 2 of the Southern Islands of Singapore. The two islands are known as Big Sister’s Island and Little Sister’s Island.

Big Sister’s Island, or referred to as Pulau Subar Laut in Malay, is around 39,000 m2 in size and faces the sea. On the other hand, Little Sister’s Island, or referred to as Pulau Subar Darat, is around 17,000 m2 in size and faces the mainland.

A tiny waterway separates the two islands. Swimmers and divers should avoid this canal since the currents are quite hazardous.
