There are actually 2 island seperated by mangrove swamp, namely Pulau Ketam and Sungai Lima. The island is surrounded by mud. Mangrove swamps are beneficial to nature as they prevent erosions, act as bio-filters, spawning ground for fish and shell-fish. They also provide santuary for Migratory birds.

The settlement were started by crab catchers in the 1800s. Crab catching activities were very active back then. Hence, Pulau Ketam or Crab Island was coined. The houses were built on stilts, originally built as Kongsi Houses. About 95% are Chinese comprising of Hokkiens, Teo Chew and some Hainanese.
