See the colourful coral right in front of your eyes or swim in one of St John’s Island’s many lagoons. You might also like to enjoy a pleasant picnic on the beach or go dolphin spotting by the water.

Not a bad place to hang out and explore the new walking trail (monthly guided tours available, contact NParks), though the island's small size and fairly steep ferry fare to get there can be little hindrances. Expect mangroves, rocky beaches, some corals, and small animals....More

I went to St John's and Lazarus island (15 min stroll, connected by a photograph-worthy bridge) on a Saturday for a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of Singapore's city life. I spent half a day there enjoying the pristine beaches and soaking up...More

Firstly make sure you pack some food and some water. There are no places at all to purchase anything on the Islands. Secondly, make sure you have cash because the tickets vendors don't accept card payment nor do the couple of little shops at the...More

I wasn't able to walk around St. John's Island because I headed straight to Lazarus Beach, which is about 15-20 minutes from St. John's dock. Loved my stay at the Lazarus Beach. It was quiet, clean and a pretty decent white beach in Singapore. Definitely...More

The only way to book St John's accommodation is via phone. We can't post links here but just google "sentosa st john island" and it should be the first link. The one on sentosa website.
