St Johns Island - Review
This is a beautiful getaway locale with great swimming lagoons, good camp sites and sandybeaches. Getting here by a fast boat doesn’t take more than 15 minutes. Today, it is a great destination for mainland locals and tourists. There are many outdoor activities for tourists as many people come here for camping and hiking the trails. There are many coral reefs surrounding the island and thus, it has become a popular destination for snorkeling and swimming.
St Johns Island is one of the attractions added in Singapore Itinerary 7 Days. Must visit this awesome attraction.

St Johns Island, Singapore Reviews
It's not my favorite place to visit because there is just few good spot in this place, but I love cats in this island because they're adorable and cute
Nice place. Need to carry food because no eateries available at island
Hidden gem in Singapore. Nice beaches and scenery. A return ticket costs $18 per person. Large part of the island is closed until 2019 (according to the website).
aint John's Island, previously known as Pulau Sakijang Bendera, is one of the Southern Islands in Singapore. It is located approximately 6.5 km to the south of the main island of Singapore, off the Straits of Singapore. Saint John's Island formerly housed a quarantine station for cholera cases detected among immigrants in the late 19th century, and starting from 1901, victims of beri-beri were also brought to the island. By 1930, the island gained world recognition as a quarantine centre screening Asian immigrants and pilgrims returning from Mecca. The quarantine station was eventually also used to house victims of other diseases, such as leprosy. When mass immigration was closed in mid-20th century, the island was used to house a penal settlement and a drug rehabilitation centre. The 40.5-hectare hilly island was transformed in 1975 into a tranquil getaway with swimming lagoons, beaches, picnic grounds, trekking routes and football fields. The island is also a haven for a host of flora and fauna, and is popular for weekend visits. There is also a small jetty at the southern end of the island to transport visitors to and from the mainland. The island, reputedly haunted according to some local traditions, was the site of Sir Stamford Raffles's anchorage before meeting the Malay chief of Singapore in 1819.

Beautiful place with nearly no people. Nice beach on lazarus island as well. Do remember to take some water and food with you as there is not even a kiosk on the islands.
