Pulau Sekudu off Ubin

Pulau Sekudu or Frog Island lies just off Chek Jawa, Pulau Ubin.

It is separated from Pulau Ubin by a narrow but deep channel. It is not possible to 'walk' from Ubin to Pulau Sekudu at low tide.

This tiny islet has seagrass meadows, a natural reefy lagoon, stunning rock formations and a scatter of mangrove trees.
Pulau Sekudu is rich in marine life.

A permit from NParks is required to land on Pulau Sekudu which is now part of the Chek Jawa Wetlands, more details

The islet's strange name has no doubt its part in the legend about how Ubin formed. There is also a large boulder on the islet in the shape of a frog. Someone had added eyes to the boulder just to help imagination along!

There is a rock in the shape of a frog
on Pulau Sekudu! Someone had added
eyes and a smile to the rock.
