Route at Ubin
The short Eastern
Route heads right at the Jetty along Jalan
Pekan Ubin towards the Police Post and along the Sensory
Some of the major sights on your journey East include:
The NParks Info Kiosk: get some tips
from the friendly NParks officers on how to spend your day. The Nature Gallery is a small exhibition area with more
information and photos about Ubin.
The beach infront of the Info Kiosk has some rock pools that are interesting
to explore at low tide. But be careful, the rocks are slippery.
The Police Post (Coast Guard) office: If you plan to camp overnight
on Ubin, do stop by to leave your particulars so they can help you
out if need any. They will also update you on the latest safety issues
on the island.
There is a large Banyan tree near the Police Coast Guard station which is growing
over a breadmaking oven complete with air vents. It is believed that
it belonged to a French family that lived and sold bread on Ubin 100
A quaint Shell station lies right around the corner.
The Sensory Trail: designed for the visually
handicapped but just as exciting for the rest, this trail allows you
to use all your senses to experience nature. Touch, smell and taste
of the fruit trees, spices and herbs found on the trail, from common
ones such as pandan and bananas, to some seldom encountered plants.
Mangroves, abandoned prawn farms and shore views: scenic views and
closer look at some strange flora and fauna.
