From as early as the 13th century, the waterway in Keppel Bay had been used as a passage for ships sailing from the Straits of Malacca to the South China Sea. The first English references to the waterway appeared in the 17th century although their small number suggests infrequent use of it.
Labrador Park (拉柏多公园, Taman Labrador), is located in the southern part of mainland Singapore. It is home to the only rocky sea-cliff on the mainland that is accessible to the public.
The name Pulau Hantu literally means “Ghost Island” in Malay. Located to the south of the main island of Singapore, off the Straits of Singapore. Pulau Hantu is actually made up of two islets: Pulau Hantu Besar (Big Ghost Island) and Pulau Hantu Kechil (Little Ghost Island). At low tide, it is possible to wade across the shallow lagoon between the two islands, but not at high tide.
Pulau Semakau was home to a small fishing village, as was the nearby island of Pulau Sakeng (Chinese: 锡京岛) which was also known as Pulau Seking. Houses built on both islands were perched on stilts as most of the villagers were subsistence fishermen, making a living off the nearby coral reefs. Located on the southern part of Singapore.
St. Johns Island
St. Johns Island, previously known as Pulau Sakijang Bendera, is one of the Southern Islands in Singapore. St. Johns Island formerly housed a quarantine station for cholera cases detected among immigrants in the late 19th century and starting from 1901, victims of beriberi were also brought to the island.
Lazarus Island was also known as Pulau Sakijang Pelepah Literally translated from Malay, ‘sa’ means one, ‘kijang’ means barking deer and ‘pelepah’ is a palm frond. Put together, it means ‘Island of One Barking Deer and Palms’. Yet to find a deer here.
The Raffles Lighthouse was first mooted in 1833, but the foundation stone was only laid in 1854 when William John Butterworth was the Governor of the Straits Settlements from 1843 to 1855. The stones on which Raffles Lighthouse stands come from the granite quarries on Pulau Ubin. The lighthouse was named after Sir Stamford Raffles, who founded modern Singapore in 1819.
Sisters Islands are two of the Southern Islands in Singapore and are located to the south of the main island of Singapore, off the Straits of Singapore. Big Sister’s Island, about 9.6 acres in area and also known as Pulau Subar Laut in Malay, faces the open sea, while Little Sister’s Island, about 4.2 acres in area and also known as Pulau Subar Darat in Malay, faces the mainland. The two islands are separated by a narrow channel. Currents through this channel can be very dangerous to swimmers and divers.
Kusu Island is one of the Southern Islands, located to the south of the main island of Singapore, off the Straits of Singapore. “Kusu” means “Tortoise Island” or “Turtle Island” in Hokkien; the island is also known as Peak Island or Pulau Tembakul in Malay.
In 1969, land reclamation work to create 360 hectares of prime waterfront site began at Marina Bay. The reclaimed land forms what is today the Marina Centre and Marina South areas, and the reclamation work was completed in 1992. In the reclamation process, Telok Ayer Basin and Inner Roads was removed from the map by reclaiming land, while the Singapore River’s mouth now flows into the bay instead of directly into the sea.
