 A Love For Yachting In Singapore 3

Cruising speed: In addition to its role as Southeast Asia’s financial hub, Singapore is also reputated as a regional cruising center, providing berthing, service, maintenance and yacht management support for local yacht owners. As importantly, it is also an alluring cruising destination in its own right.

You may not know this but Singapore has many natural islands – some still untouched by urbanization – a bowel of tranquility and nature for island hopping. Sail to the Southern Islands to explore Kusu Island, which features both Malay and Chinese temples, and is a popular destination for worshippers throughout the lunar calendar. As a holiday resort, Kusu Island is also the destination of choice for many sunseekers and outdoors lovers in Singapore. Nearby, Sister’s Island is separated from Kusu Island by a deep and narrow channel, easily accessible by yacht. Sister’s Island boasts secluded beaches and rich waters ideally suited to a relaxing afternoon cruise.

Nearby Lazarus Island is good for water-based activities such as swimming, kayaking and fishing. Lazarus Island is also home to beautiful sandy beaches and clear, inviting waters and a laid-back escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

At sunset, it takes just a short cruise back to the marina in Singapore, during which you can view the city’s glamourous skyline, which features iconic structures such as the Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer. With a huge variety of options for dining out and exploring the city by night, your Singapore cruise will provide you with a memorable day on the water.
