Add a Point to the Map

Pekan Quarry is one of a couple of quarries that can be found on Pulau Ubin and is located at the eastern part of the island. The quarries are now no longer in use and are now filled with water. The deep pool and surrounding granite cliffs make them ideal for photo-taking.

Most of the quarry is fenced up and only a small section has been converted into a viewpoint of the quarry. It is here that most people stop to take photos and take in the view. There are signs posted all around warning against swimming in the quarry and visitors would do well to heed the warnings as the pool is very deep.

However, some parts of the fence allow for a closer look at the pool but be sure to watch your footing. 

Directions

From Tanah Merah MRT, take bus no. '2' and alight at Changi Point Bus Interchange. Proceed to Changi Point Ferry Terminal and take the ferry to Pulau Ubin.

Type of place: Lake
Location: Pulau Ubin, Singapore
Street address: Western part of Pulau Ubin
