5 Fun Things To Do On St John’s Island, Singapore’s Offshore Gem Only 30 Minutes Away

Back to nature

A few kilometres south of Singapore lies a secret beach with clear waters and white sands on St John’s Island, one of the country’s many beautiful offshore islands.

This popular day-trip destination was once a quarantine centre for immigrants coming into Singapore who had cholera, beri-beri and leprosy; it was later used to house political prisoners and drug rehabilitators. (You can still see the high barbed-wire fences!)

Today, it’s a popular day-trip destination with tons to do, both on land and beyond its shores.
