Pulau Seletar (or Seletar Island) is an island situated in the Straits of Johor off the northern coast of Singapore.[1] Located within Singapore waters, it has an area of 38.5 hectare.[2] It lies within a bay into which several streams flow, including the waters of mainland Singapore's only hot spring.[3][4]

Pulau Seletar forms a single subzone of its own, located within the planning area of Simpang.[5]

Pulau Seletar is home to mangrove trees, the tallest of which reach a height of 80 feet.[4]
