14 May – 12th June: Pesta Ubin 2016!
Make a date with Pesta Ubin this year! There are various activities for everyone on this Pulau Ubin open day, please read on for more details!
What is Pesta Ubin?
Pesta Ubin is Ubin Open House!
Pesta, pronounced ‘Pays-ta’, is Malay for festival or party. Pesta often describes festivities that bring a community together, such as a wedding; or a cultural celebration. (It is NOT an Italian dish: which is ‘pasta’.)
What’s special about Pesta Ubin?
Once a year, people who love Ubin step up to share with the public their special slice of Pulau Ubin. Pesta Ubin activities are heartfelt, organic and led by the community.
Ubin’s unique charms are passionately highlighted in Pesta Ubin activities. Its culture, kampung life, nature and wildlife, Ubin land and sea. From Ubin Town to the quarries, and the waters around Pulau Ubin. Morning, noon and night!
Get a taste of the kinder, gentler way of life on Ubin during Pesta Ubin. Leave the city attitude behind, and get with The Ubin Way. On Ubin, we greet one another with a smile, a “Hello”, “How was your day?”. Respect the culture, get to know the quirky people of Ubin. Be gentle with wildlife that share the island. Keep our footprint light so Ubin remains unspoilt for those who follow behind us.

Many Pesta Ubin activities are free of charge. Some do NOT require registration. Simply come to Pulau Ubin and join the fun! Find a Pesta Ubin activity that suits your schedule and interest! Don’t say Bo Jio!
