Located on the southeastern tip of Pulau Ubin are Chek Jawa Wetlands, a coral reef that has evolved into a wetlands area. As six different habitats meet in this one area, Chek Jawa Wetlands are unique in their diversity of ecosystems and is a popular destination to explore on Pulau Ubin. The best way to reach the area is by bicycle (you can walk, but it takes at least 40 minutes); rent one when you disembark from the bumboat and get ready for a scenic and sometimes challenging ride. However, reaching Chek Jawa is worth the effort.
Featuring both sandy and rocky beaches, mangrove forests and sea grass lagoons, Chek Jawa is rich with wildlife, a wide range of which can be observed from the boardwalk that runs through the area. Other options for observation include the seven-story high viewing tower where you can rise into the forest’s canopy to see the islands birdlife. Ask about one of the specially scheduled shore walks from the park service for access to the waterline. The visitor’s center near the entrance of Chek Jawa is also a great source for more information on the area’s wildlife and history.
Once you reach Ubin Jetty, you can hire a van to get to Chek Jawa for $2 SGD per person for up to 12 people, one-way; the van will drop you off a short distance from Chek Jawa and you’ll have to walk the rest of the way. Or, rent a bicycle and cycle your way to Chek Jawa. Prices for bicycle rental range from $8-$10 SGD, though they may be higher on holidays. Chek Jawa is open from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
