8 Untouched Pockets of Nature in Singapore

Explore these pristine natural spots with us

Are you tired of staring at dull, rigid skyscrapers? Are you itching to escape the hustle and bustle of the urban metropolis? Not to worry. We’ve got just the remedy for you. From serene nature parks to isolated beaches, here are 8 tranquil, untouched pockets of nature in Singapore where you can take a breather and find some much-needed peace of mind.

1. Pulau Ubin and Chek Jawa

Address: 119B Pulau Ubin, Singapore 508329
Singapore Toll-free Number: 1800 471 7300 
Opening Hours: 8:30am to 6:00pm

Experience what Singapore was like in the 1960s with a trip to Pulau Ubin, an offshore island with the last standing villages in Singapore. The absence of all modern technology, coupled with an abundance of unblemished beaches, mangroves, and plantations on the island stand testament to its sheer purity and simplicity. We recommend taking in the vast beauty of Pulau Ubin on a mountain bike.

Don’t forget to make a pit stop at Chek Jawa while you're there, located nearby at the Eastern tip of the island. This gorgeous, untouched cape boasts a diversity of critters including sea stars, crabs, and wild boars. Take in the wonders of nature, from the coastal forest to the seagrass lagoon, but remember to visit only at low tide.
