Lazarus Island

Lazarus Island Beach

Explore Singapore Islands – Lazarus Island

We love the: Turquoise sea water, fine white sand (almost), less crowd (for now), friendly cats around the island, lots of greenery, tranquility, away-from-the-city kind of feels.

We dislike the: Toilets – nearest toilet is at St John’s island, near the bridge to Lazarus (please bring your own toilet paper), absence of shops / amenities.

Lazarus Island Beach

On a good weather day, you might want to bring:

– LOTS of sun block. Or you can look like a red lobster for a day and peel like a snake for the next few days. Caps and Umbrellas too.

– Swimwear! Even if you didn’t plan to swim, bring them just in case the inviting waters are so alluring that you end up jumping into the waters fully clothed, like us.

– Picnic mat. We didn’t prepare one and had butt-shaped sand imprints on our pants after.

– Some snacks and drinks as there are no shops on the Islands. Do have some drinking water to prevent dehydration and heat stroke. Please clear the rubbish before you leave the place and keep this precious beach clean!
