Some Frequently Asked Questions on Chek Jawa

Can we go to Chek Jawa at other times?

Yes, you can visit Chek Jawa every day from 8.30am to 6pm. Admission is free. Just come explore the boardwalk and Visitor Centre on your own, free and easy, no guides necessary. More details on the NParks website and wildsingapore website.

Are there guided tours to Chek Jawa at other times?

NParks conducts guided tours on the sea shore (called intertidal walks) all year round when the tides are suitably low. There are charges and registration is required. More on the NParks website.

The Naked Hermit Crabs conducts free guided walks at Chek Jawa every month for families and kids. These are on the boardwalk and do not go down to the sea shore. The walk is free, but registration is required. More on the Naked Hermit Crabs blog.
