Take a trip out to Kusu Island on the Southern Islands, situated around 5.6 km (3.5 mi) from the country's main island. Its name translates to "Tortoise Island," based on a popular myth that the land was made by a magical tortoise that turned itself into an island in order to rescue two shipwrecked sailors. The name still holds true today because of the tortoise sanctuary located here. Hike to ancient places of worship across the rugged, lush landscape. Beaches on the island offer room for relaxation and swimming. Add Kusu Island to your Singapore travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Singapore online holiday planner.

Peaceful small island away from Singapore, very quiet and small island, there is Chinese temple and Few tortoise, nothing much attractive.
Peaceful little island away from the stress and hustles of normal city life in Singapore. The sea water was quite clear and several marine fishes are spotted around the jetty. There is hawker food during the busy few weeks of pilgrimage around October but there is likely minimal or no food vendors during the off peak periods. Bring your own food for a small picnic trip.
