Chek Ubin, Singapore Tidal Pools

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

There is less than six years to visit the tidal pools of Chek Jawa, Palau Ubin. Singapore’s reclamation of Chek Jawa is deferred until January 14, 2012. Drop in and view the tidal pools before the deferment ends and paradise is lost forever.

The island of Palau Ubin lies in the Straits of Johor. This is the body of water which separates Singapore from peninsular Malaysia. Leave by ferry or bumboat from the Changi jetty. A bumboat is a private boat for hire.

A short ride later, the water vessel docks on the island. Rent a bicycle and proceed to the eastern shore of the island. Vans are available for rent as well. Plan to arrive at low tides, the optimum time to view the abundance of marine life.

Change to water shoes and join a volunteer guide’s tour group. The tour guide will show the tidal pools, sharing the names and facts of the various marine life. Remember to walk only on the mud and sand flats per the guide’s instructions. Save the tranquil and beautiful tidal pools for future visitors. This includes not littering and playing music.

The guide will reveal small crabs scurrying along. Barnacles and drill-snail eggs cling to the rocks. Sponges, and octopuses and seahorses fill the tidal pools. At low tide, sea plants and algae appear to wave in the water. Flower crabs, and sea stars and sea cucumbers live here in safety. Carpet anemones are everywhere on the tidal pool floors. Visitors view sometimes stingrays trapped in tidal pools.

Remember the area is very sensitive. The perfect visitor only walks where instructed by the guide. Smokers refrain while on the tour. Be aware of the stringent Singapore smoking laws. Protect this treasure from Mother Nature.

Links are supplied to view Chek Jawa tidal pool creatures. Take a quick peak!

This is a good guidebook for the Singapore traveler. There are great tips to plan your trip.
