Although Sentosa is the most famous island in the southern islands of Singapore, there are other islands to the south that are worth exploring. Cruising around them is also one of the fun ways to spend a day out of the city of Singapore.
Kusu Island, St John’s Island, the twin Sisters’ Islands, Pulau Tekukor, Lazarus Island and Pulau Seringat (Pulau in Malay word mean island). Singapore Island Cruise provides ferry transport to Kusu, St John and Lazarus Island at S$12.00 from Marina South Pier, but there are other private companies and chartered cruises that will take you around a few of the islands and even stop for a barbeque or picnic.
