 Chek Jawa

  • Teeming wildlife at Chek Jawa

    The natural treasures of Chek Jawa – or Tanjung Chek Jawa as it is sometimes called – were only discovered when the area was destined for a reclamation project. The rocky shore has since become a valued nature reserve after the area was shown to be teeming with life and biodiversity. 

    Situated in the far south-east of Pulau Ubin, a small island off the main isle of Singapore, visit the 100-hectare wetlands via a ferry to Pulau Ubin, and rent a van or bicycle. If you enjoy walking, Chek Jawa is about a 40-minute walk from the main village. 

    Experience the rich ecosystems of Chek Jawa along the 1.1 km boardwalk that runs along the coast and mangrove area and get a glimpse of the rich plant and marine life. A 20-metre tall viewing tower offers you a chance to observe the birdlife, including the Collared Kingfisher and Straw-headed Bulbul. You can also book a guided tour or visit the Visitor Centre and viewing jetty for more educational information.
