Cycling at Pulau Ubin, Singapore Overview

Away from the busy traffic and the blaring horns, from the soaring skyscrapers and the bustling highways, explore your way through the peaceful streets of Pulau Ubin at your own pace on a bicycle. Situated off the coast of north-eastern Singapore, Pulau Ubin, which means "Granite Island", is endowed with towering coconut trees which sway with the cool breeze, wonderful shorelines, and an abundance of flora and fauna. Explore the scenic beauty of this dense island, teeming with fascinating wildlife like monkeys, wild boars and Malayan water monitors, surrounded by bright and beautiful flowers while breathing in the fresh, unpolluted air.

The flourishing mangroves, the sprawling fruit plantations, and the surrounding tranquil beaches along with the quaint, laid-back atmosphere of the village encompassing Pulau Ubin add to the charm of the place and give it a unique, serene aura. The remnants of Singapore's last villages, popularly known as the kampongs, make you feel as if you have travelled back in time to the 1960s. With basic skills in riding bicycles, you can embark on a thrilling, four-hour long ride and finally have your fill of adventure. Set yourself free on this bicycle tour that takes you through all the unexplored and concealed dirt tracks and tarmac roads in this rural island. You can choose if you want to go on an unguided tour or a guided one.

How to go about the bicycle tour

Head to the National Parks Information Kiosk, which is right across the Pulau Ubin ferry terminal, and just hop on a bicycle from the rental shop, pay for it and set out on an unpredictable adventure. Make sure to get a map of the area to prevent losing your way. If the latter seems more preferable to you, all you need to do is set up a meeting with the one who is going to guide you through the tour. At the rental shop in the kiosk, you can choose your own bicycle and begin one of the unforgettable rides with a certified guide after strapping on your safety gear. The cycling routes are subject to change on a daily basis, but be certain that you will not miss out on the wonderful things that the breathtaking island has to offer. While one path leads you to the fruit plantations at Chek Jawa and Jalan Ubin to the east, another takes you to the Pekan Quarry to the west. You may enjoy the mesmerising views at the Johor Straits or get to know more about the "Mystery Girl of Ubin" at the German Girl Shrine. Soak in the breathtaking surroundings brimming with wildlife along with the coastal forests painted with different shades of green and the fine, unspoiled sandy beaches.
