Tanjung Chek Jawa, usually known as Chek Jawa, is an extensive wetland measuring 100 hectares, located to the South East of the Pulau Ubin island near the main island of Singapore. It is a vibrant mix of 6 diverse habitats, making it one of the richest ecosystems across the world. The visitors are amazed to find sandy and rock-filled beaches in close conjunction to a coral & seagrass lagoon as well as mangrove and coastal forests. Chek Jawa is one of the most popular sightseeing spots in Singapore, especially for nature lovers, bird watchers and international tourists.
The major attraction of Chek Jawa Wetland is the boardwalk leading across to the mangrove area and allowing visitors a close encounter with the marine and plant life of the region. The boardwalk has been made using environmental friendly concrete, simulated to resemble timber. The other point of interest at CHek Jawa is the 21-meter tall Jejawi tower offering bird's eye view of the area's unique wildlife. Regular guided tours are organised at Chek Jawa on specific periods of the month. This site has been declared as “Ubin–Khatib Important Bird Area (IBA)” by “BirdLife International” as it is home to a huge number of bird species with some of them belonging to endangered species.
