24th April - Chek Jawa Boardwalk trip coming up!

The Naked Hermit Crabs introduce you to Chek Jawa without getting your feet wet. Even though we are not going on to the shore, there is still much to see and enjoy. There are monitor lizards, fiddler crabs, spiders, rare plants, wild boars, mudskippers and lots of fruit trees. If we are lucky, we might even spot the Oriental Pied Hornbill, White-bellied Sea Eagle and the giant Atlas Moth.

Please write to us at to register.

Date: 24 April 2010 (Saturday)
Time: 9:30 am
Duration: 2 hours
Meeting Place: Chek Jawa Information Kiosk
Cost: Still no charge

How to get to Chek Jawa?

1) Take the bumboat to the island of Pulau Ubin from Changi Village.
2) Once you arrive at Ubin, you can find a lot of island taxis (vans) near the jetty. Tell the taxi driver to take you to Chek Jawa.

Give yourself 1 hour to travel from Changi Village to Chek Jawa.

How many people can I sign up for?

We welcome small family and friend groups of around 6 people or fewer. For large groups and organisations, we suggest you pool your resources together and hire professional guides. Write to us and we will tell you who they are.
