1. It’s the Southern most tip of Singapore.

4. There use to be 5 lighthouses in Singapore managed by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.
5. The soil seems fertile at Pulau Satumu and the fruits are looking so big and juicy
6. There are about 88 steps to the top of the lighthouse
7. The island is roughly the size of 2 football fields combine.
It’s about 6 storeys high up from where I was standing.
The quartz halogen lamps in aluminium reflectors (as shown in the picture above) emit the white light visible from 20 nautical miles away! The light pulses not only function as a location indicator but also warn seafarers of treacherous rocks and reefs.
While you may enjoy a beautiful seafront view all to yourself, I think it does get quite lonely being up here but thankfully, there’s wifi connection here.
It can be really hot up there but all this heat energy is being harnessed by solar panels.
It was a fruitful trip to the far end of Singapore which is unexplored yet by many.
Is Singapore an interesting place after all? I am really starting to fall in love with this country again.
