History: For many of Singapore's immigrants, St. John's Island (previously known as Pulau Sekijang Bendara) was the first place of disembarkation. Here, they were registered and screened for disease. Immigrants who were found to be carriers of tuberculosis, malaria, cholera, typhoid, etc were quarantined on the island.

When the island ceased to be a screening centre, it became a colony for cholera patients. It has since also been used as a drug rehabilitation centre and a place of exile for political dissidents and ringleaders of secret societies.

Do you know that Sir Stamford Raffles, sailing on the Indiana actually anchored off this island on 28 February 1819 before taking a small ketch to get to the shores of Singapore the next day.

In recent times, the western end of the island hosts a $30 million Marine Aquaculture Centre. With effect from 21 November 2006, ferries departs from Marina South Pier instead. Ferry services will no longer run from Sentosa's ferry terminal.
