Pulau Ubin Beach
A popular weekend getaway from Singapore, Pulau Ubin Beach is a ten minute “bumboat” ride away from Changi Point Ferry Terminal. For just a few dollars visitors get to enjoy small yet tranquil areas of golden sand, complete with natural shade from the overhanging leaves of coconut palms and other forms of native flora.
The island is one of just two remaining traditional kampungs (villages) in Singapore. Entirely free of motor vehicles, it’s possible to reach Pulau Ubin beach on foot from the jetty. However, the plethora of bicycles available for rent will show you that most visitors choose instead to head there by bike.
The main cluster of facilities are located beside the jetty, including restaurants serving up the island delicacy of chilli crab. There’s also a coastal boardwalk for taking a closer look at the island’s mangroves, and if the waves are right, the chance to surf too. It’s possible to overnight on the beach in a tent. There are toilets and benches close by.
