BEST KEPT SE­CRET

Who says you have to travel out of Sin­ga­pore for a beach break? If you’re look­ing for soft, white sand and turquoise wa­ters, say hello to the still rel­a­tively iso­lated beach par­adise of Lazarus Is­land, and its his­tor­i­cal neigh­bour, St John’s Is­land, right next door. St John’s was once used as a quar­an­tine cen­tre for im­mi­grants suffering from cholera and lep­rosy, and later as a drug re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion cen­tre for im­mi­grants. Don’t let its che­quered past put you off, though – to­day, it’s a quiet week­end get­away, reached eas­ily by ferry. Get­ting there: Boats de­part at least twice daily from Ma­rina South Pier.
