Pulau Sekudu off Ubin

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

You can see this island just off the Chek Jawa boardwalk.

This fascinating little islet appears tantalizingly close to Ubin's shore, but can only be reached by boat at low tides. 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!

Pulau Sekudu is rich in marine life, see photos on wildsingapore flickr.

The islet also has fascinating rock formations. more on Joseph Lai's eart-h.com website.
