Chek Jawa Overview and Features

If you want to relax and find peace of mind, Chek Jawa in Singapore is the best place to visit. NParks perform regular nature walks in this area to conserve its beauty and ensure that it is always in good condition. Chek Jawa is considered one of the richest nature areas in Singapore because it features six stunning habitats. 

Considering the pandemic, Chek Jawa is only open for 45 people per day that will be divided into several groups containing 10 individuals per group. Each group will be led by one NParks guide. The walk will start from the Mangrove Loop to the Coastal Loop, which is 1.1 kilometres in the distance. 

As mentioned earlier, Chek Jawa has six habitats. This could probably be the reason why it has a lot of tourists around the world. The area is also home to the richest shores in Singapore. Thus, you will be mesmerized by the views of coastal forests, mangroves, coral rubble, seagrass lagoon, rocky beaches, and sandy beaches. 

Since it is located in Palau Ubin with around 3,000 inhabitants before, you can see some homes along the area. Some tourists had the chance to see Muslim graves and old wells. 

Beyond the aerial roots, one of the things you will lobe about the mangrove forest is its desalination system. 

When you visit the area, you might see that the mangrove trees have crystalizing leaves. This is because the leaves work by filtering the salt from the water. The mangrove forest also protects the shores from possible erosion. Aside from that, you can also find several species here, such as insects, birds, mudskippers, fish, and shrimps. 


Chek Jawa is the best place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. You can go here with your family and friends between 9 AM to 5 PM. It would be best to come here early to wander the entire habitats located within Chek Jawa. 

It is recommended to wear rubber shoes or booties with hard soles. Make sure not to walk on Chek Jawa barefooted as there’s a high chance you might step on metal litter, glasses, sea urchins, stonefish, or catfish. 

Pulau Ubin is located a 15-minute ride away from Singapore.
