List of islands of Singapore

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of islands of Singapore. Massive land reclamation works over the past centuries has merged many of Singapore's former islands and islets and has created a few larger ones. At present, Singapore has about 63 islands, with 3 being inhabited, including the main constituent Singapore Island, with 7 of them – including those in the Western Water Catchment as they are in the SAFTI live firing area – belonging to the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF).[1]
