List of islands of Singapore

This is a list of islands of Singapore. Massive land reclamation work over the past centuries has removed many of Singapore's natural islands and islets and has created a few new ones. At present, Singapore has about 64 islands[1], with only 3 being inhabited and 4 of them belonging to the Singapore Armed Forces.
