Was there with a couple of friends and family in June 2015. First time there and I really don't think I have a lot of things to say about the island (Some might think this is exactly the point of an idyllic island). Herewith in point form:
- the boat ride from West Coast Pier is a little of 2 extremes: we were transformed from the world of commerce what with the container terminals, view of the CBD, Jurong Island and other industrial areas to an idyllic island found south of the Singapore mainland.
- Upon disembarkation from the launch, we were greeted by a low tide. The lagoon itself literally is sucked of any water. Can't help it since its the act of Nature, but I observed that the seabed is full of rocks and some debris like discarded bottles and styrofoam boxes. Note there are two lagoons on the island and the one I am referring to is the one that faces Pulau Bukom Shell Refinery.
- Rubbish bins does not seem to have been cleared for a few days. The trash bags bore marks of scavenging by the lone resident macaque.
- Toilet facilities are not satisfactory: shower heads not working properly for a decent shower, water pressure is weak like a baby pissing.
- Waters are not clear at all - that day when I was there, visibility is probably a mere 1.0m tops.
- Ideal for a day excursion if you wanna get away from the city life for a couple of hours but nothing more.
Conclusion: Would not head there again
