The Complete Guide On Visiting The Best Beach in Singapore: Lazarus & St. John's Islands

by - 6:00 AM

When going to Singapore you think concrete jungle with an advanced modern society with futuristic architecture. What if I told you that there are some remote islands located in Singapore? If you want to getaway from the bustling city streets of Singapore, then I have the perfect guide for you.

 I recently had the pleasure to explore these islands with my friend, Bianca. Although these islands are quite deserted with no shops or restaurants, it's a nice and refreshing spot to explore some nature or just have a beach day! Whether you live here or came as a tourist then you must check these islands out.

We came here around 9:30 am on a weekday to catch the 10:00 am ferry to St John's island which will connect to Lazarus Island. Lazarus island is known for their picturesque beach that apparently is comparable to the Maldives according to The Smart Local. We were skeptical of that so we decided to check it out ourselves.

How To Get There:

Take the red line MRT train to Marina South Pier. From there is the ferry terminal and there will be an orange booth selling return tickets for $18 SGD. From Monday-Friday the ferry departs at 10am or 2pm. Saturdays at 9am, 11am, 1pm, or 3pm. Sundays & Public Holidays at 10am or 2pm. Saturdays at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm, or 5pm. The tickets can be quite confusing because the actually trip loops from Marina South Pier to St. John's Island to Kusu Island and then back to Marina South Pier. The departure times from all of the places can be quite confusing so I would double check here.

To get to Lazarus Island, you have to take the ferry to St. Johns. From there there is a bridge connecting you to Lazarus and it's about a 15 minute walk to the beach. Bring water, a beach towel, sunscreen, and lots of food!

On the way there you will meet a lot of stray cats. They are very friendly so don't be afraid to pet them. It's an experience you won't fur-get!

I was quite impressed with this beach especially since Singapore isn't known for their beaches. Maybe it's not quite Hawaii or the Maldives, but the white sandy beaches and (clearer) waters makes you feel like you're in a tropical oasis.

I love private secluded beaches but unfortunately we came on a bad day. It thundered, almost rained, and the sun was hiding behind the clouds. Typically the water is a lot more vibrant and clear but because of the weather, we didn't have the best sights.

I will honest though, we were quite bored here but we reckon it's because we weren't well prepared. I wish I brought more suitable clothes that I could sweat in, cold drinks, more food, and good walking shoes because my sandals actually broke. :(

I would come back here another time probably with a group of friends on a weekend and maybe even make a BBQ out of it. There are some good spots to host a BBQ on Kusu island which you can see easily right next to Lazarus Island.

Picnic on the white sandy beach with a friend and get lost with the beauty and nature that Lazarus Island has to offer. Next time I will bring some cold beers to cool down with and possibly some good music to chill out to.

This is a quaint and peaceful spot to work on your tan. We saw families here, couples, and even people flying their drone. This is a good spot for a day date with your loved one. Cheap, fun, and adventurous!

Downtown Singapore is so close to the island that it's not hard to miss just standing here. Come explore this hidden gem and let me know what you think of this place in the comment section below!
