Great spot to spend afternoon and do some light snorkeling. New swimmers should exercise caution; the current is very strong. Also they close relatively early at 4 pm (Thursday).

This was our favorite beach on our trip to Guam. We hit it 3 times in a week! It's down a long, really beat up road, but just take it slow and any car can make it. There is a lot of current and not a lot of swimming, but it's still a beautiful spot to chill for a couple... More

This is by far the most beautiful beach in Guam. The sand is very fine and soft so walking on it barefoot is no problem at all. However going into the water aqua boots are necessary. Getting there is troublesome, the road that heads there is full of potholes which need to be dodged or crossed slowly to prevent damage... More

I hadn't come to Ritidian in about 4 years. We had some friends visiting on island here and so I took them up there. The road past Micronesia Mall and the new Hospital where you turn to start heading to Ritidian is REALLY rough. We did it in a car but it was unpleasant. Once there however even though the... More

This northernmost beach in Guam is located in the Guam national reserve. It is a popular beach for many Japanese and Korean tourists. This turned out to be the beat beach in Our Guam visit, better than tumon and ypao beach in our view given 1) its beach is white and secluded if you go in the morning this beach... More

I lived in Guam for almost 2 years and Ritidian was my favorite beach. I really enjoyed getting away from the crowds and going to a beach that is undeveloped. The scenery could appear on a postcard. If you prefer boardwalks and beach chairs, Tumon is a better choice. There are really no amenities at Ritidian so bring your own... More

This beach is on the northern most point of the island and is worth checking out. It has beautiful white beaches with very little crowds. To access, you go through the Guam National Wildlife Refuge which has some visitor sites of interest as well such as ancient cave networks with pictographs and a visitor center before the beaches.

Beautiful water. Beautiful sand. Beautiful views. Wonderful place to spend a morning or afternoon in the shade of a tree or playing in the sand or the shallow water or taking pictures or watching the boats beyond the reef or walking the trails in the forest . A must place to visit!! One of our favorites on Guam. However waters... More
