Kusu Island

A giant sea turtle saves two shipwrecked sailors a Malay and a Chinese. As an act of thanks, the two men build a Chinese temple, a Malay shrine and a huge turtle sculpture.

So goes the legend behind this island. Today, Taoists still make annual pilgrimages to the Tua Pekong Temple during the ninth lunar month while Muslims visit Kramat Kusu, the Malay shrine.

Stunning views of the mainland can be seen from Kusus beaches and its hilltop. The warm waters of the lagoon are ideal for swimming.
