1. SAINT JOHN ISLAND
Used to be known as Pulau Sakijang Bendera, is approximately 6.5KM away from southern part of Singapore mainland. St John’s Island was used to serve as a quarantine centre for immigrants who came into Singapore with cholera, beri-beri and leprosy. It was later used to house political prisoners and drug rehabilitators. And now it's open to public where it's easily accessible by 15minutes ferry ride from Marina south pier.
