Situated approx. 6.5km south of Singapore, St John's Island (previously known as Pulau Sekijang Bendara) makes an idyllic getaway to get a glorious tan, a picnic on the sandy beach, explore off-beaten treks around the island or simply laze away by the lagoon.

The 39-hectare island is also a haven for a host of flora and fauna. Tropical Marine Science Institute, Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore's Marine Aquaculture Centre are also located on the island.
