This treat is not too far from Andersen Air Force Base, but you feel like you are miles away. We took our pickup truck because my little sedan would have had a difficult time navigating the numerous pot holes that can swallow your car. The free wildlife refuge is open from 7:30 to 4:00. There is a scenic overlook on... More

There isn't a ton to do in Guam, but I went to the Guam National Wildlife Refuge twice during my one week stay. It is BEAUTIFUL. There are plenty of hiking trails. The beach is unlike any other in the US but warning: we were advised by several local coworkers not to swim there - the current is very strong... More

I saw that it was the top place to go in Guam, and I was pleasantly surprised that the area was really quiet. I guess I went out earlier than most people. I was expecting it to be crowded, but instead ended up with my own little tropical beach in paradise. There's a long road full of pot holes through... More

Tough to get to but worth the trip. No hassle beach. You might be the only person there. We spent a very long time here. Bring the sunscreen as there is very little shade. Wish we had more time to explore.

When I walked through this forest-like passage which is he entrance to the beach, and stepped into the beach, and I was in awe. It was striking. The powdery white sand, the colors of the sky, the clear water, the waves crashing on the reef, hermit crabs prancing around for my amusement. I did not schedule a guide with a... More

Selfishly I want to give this beach a terrible rating and say a whole bunch of bad things about it so I can keep it for myself. Most weekdays and even weekends my wife and I have our own little spot with no one else around. The bad road there is well worth the trip.You are never very far from... More

You have to see this beach. The water is crystal clear! Its right next to Guam's wildlife resort so stop by there too and take one of the cave tours they're worth it (very friendly staff--especially Tasha Hawk). Be sure to lock up your valuables or leave them home. There's a very high rate of theft at Ritidian.

First off, if you're going to Ritidian Point, make sure you're prepared for a 40-minute or so drive from most hotels. Don't take a taxi, unless you're sure they'll come back to pick you up. Second, the road going there is pretty crappy, be prepared to go at snail's pace to avoid huge pot holes on the road. It's like... More

Guam coastline as it was in the 1960's before the dollar messed the environment. Just make sure that they are not closed for any reason, it takes quite a bit of time to get there. If you decide to go for a swim, take caution as the water tends to be rough. You might get lucky strolling the beach and... More
