About the Ferries to the Different Southern Islands

When you embark on a journey with Singapore Island Cruise, you’re not just taking a ferry ride – you’re stepping into a world of natural beauty and cultural richness. Our ferries are your gateway to discovering the pristine beaches, ancient island shrines, and other hidden gems that the Southern Islands of Singapore have to offer.

Each island in this archipelago is a unique treasure waiting to be explored. From the tranquil shores of Lazarus Island to the historical significance of St. John’s Island and the picturesque charm of Kusu Island, there’s an adventure for every traveller.

As you set sail with us and island hop, get ready to immerse yourself in the beauty and serenity of these southern gems. Let’s take you on a journey that goes beyond transportation – it’s an exploration of the heart and soul of Singapore’s Southern Islands.

Lazarus Island, also known as Pulau Sekijang Pelepah, is a hidden gem within Singapore’s Southern Islands. Connected to St. John’s Island by a picturesque causeway, Lazarus Island beckons with its tranquil and breathtaking beaches. This serene sanctuary is the perfect escape for those seeking a peaceful retreat, where the pristine sands and crystal-clear waters await your discovery. 

Join us on a ferry journey to Lazarus Island and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of this idyllic oasis.

St. John’s Island, previously known as Pulau Sakijang Bendera, is a captivating destination among Singapore’s Southern Islands. Located approximately 6.5 kilometres south of Singapore’s main island, it offers a serene escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. This island, with its rich history and tranquil surroundings, beckons you to explore its natural beauty. Take a ferry journey with us to St. John’s Island and discover the enchanting charm of this unique destination.

Kusu Island, situated approximately 5.6 kilometres south of Singapore’s main island, is a captivating destination waiting to be explored. Known as “Turtle” or “Tortoise” Island in Chinese, and Pulau Tembakul (Peak Island) in Malay, Kusu Island boasts a rich cultural heritage and natural beauty. This 85,000-square-metre island leisure resort has evolved from two small outcrops on a reef into a remarkable destination that promises adventure and tranquillity. Step aboard our ferry to Kusu Island and uncover the unique charm of this captivating isle and revel in the wonders of the Kusu island temples and more.

Sisters’ Islands comprise two of the captivating Southern Islands of Singapore. These two islands are affectionately known as Big Sister’s Island and Little Sister’s Island.

Big Sister’s Island, or Pulau Subar Laut in Malay, covers an area of approximately 39,000 square metres and gazes out upon the open sea. In contrast, Little Sister’s Island, or Pulau Subar Darat, spans approximately 17,000 square metres and faces the mainland.

These islands are separated by a narrow waterway, and caution is advised as the currents in this channel can be treacherous for swimmers and divers. 

Join us on the Sister Islands ferry and explore the unique beauty and ecosystem of these twin treasures.
