Fodor's Review

Take a 10-minute ride on a bumboat (a small launch) from Changi Point Ferry Terminal to reach this boomerang-shape island. Here amid kelongs (fishing huts), the life of the islands roughly 50 residents hasn't changed much in 30 years. The name derives from the Malay word for granite, zubin. The best way to see this island is on bicycle, which can be rented on the island for around S$10. There are three trails that lead past old plantations, mangrove swamps, forests, and the occasional wild boar. Small, scruffy seafood restaurants on the island serve fresh coconuts and Chinese dishes.
