Kusu Island, Singapore

(3.5/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Singapore trip itinerary maker to add Kusu Island and other attractions to your Singapore vacation plans.

  • Kusu Island is a small island besides Lazarus Island. It is small but has nice beaches. Not much facility there and F & B is lacking except in the Chinese Temple. Actually there is a food court but is empty. There are two temples there. One right at the center of the island. The other is less obvious and is situated at the southern end of the island on top of a hill.
  • peaceful, calm and relaxing
  • Nothing much to see except few temples. Other sister island have got nice beaches than kusu.
