How many islands are there in Singapore?

Apart from Sentosa, that is. I am thinking of visiting them all on my next holiday.

    There are 60+ islands! You sure you want to visit them ALL in your next holiday? :) But, the ones that people visit will be Ubin, Kusu island, Sister islands and St John Islands and you probably can cover them in a day or 2 (Ubin may be a separate visit).

    There will be some islands which are off limits or restricted access such as Pedra Branca, Tekong and Jurong Island.
