Went here twice and felt very safe. The water is calm and clear. There are lifeguards available. There are plenty of fish to see. Sand is fine and almost like powder. There is also a friendly local who sets up a tent to rent out snorkel gear, life vests, mats, for reasonable prices.

Easy access, beautiful views and beach. Great for swimming, snorkeling and sun worshiping (since the sand is not very rocky) .

Ypao--officially Governor Flores Beach Park--is the best-maintained beach on Guam as well as one of the few easily accessible by public transportation. It is child friendly and shallow for its first 50 feet (roughly 8-9 meters), then drops off quickly. Waves are mild because it is protected by reefs at the entrance of Tumon Bay, but swimmers share the beach... More

This is one of Guam's more popular public beaches. It sits on a prime site in the heart of Tumon Bay and is one of the island's great public treasures. Many aspect of the park are aging and run down, but the sand is white powder, and the snorkeling in the shallow bay is easy and rewarding.

Located towards the southern end of Tumon Bay, close to the Hilton, this is the largest and most popular beach and park on Guam. Its official name has been changed to Joseph Flores Beach Park, but locals still know it by its former moniker Ypao Beach, and calling it anything else may generate a blank stare. Great space to relax... More

I have not travelled here, I live here! So as many people love their home and would recommend places to see, I am just another one of them. But believe me, this place is so peaceful and beautiful! Just kick off your shoes and relax on the soft, white sand, or go swimming in crystal clear waters! Either way, you... More

This park is good to hang out in , take a dip, have a picnic and do other water activities. I jogged in the park early in the morning and saw a lot of people just hanging out. I was not sure if it was a good thing or not. Some people might have been sleeping in the park. I... More

This is a nice small-ish beach with a beautiful park. At least in April, it was not very busy. It's very easy to find parking here. I went here several times during my vacation.

We went there on the Saturday of the Easter weekend. We got there in the afternoon as we were on our way back from driving around the island. On the day the park was full of locals having a BBQ. We did not go into the water as it was very windy on the day we were there, and the... More

Had several hours free on my last day in Guam, so I quickly ran to abc store for some snorkel gear and went to ypao beach. You don't have to go far for some great beginner snorkeling. There are tons of fish in very shallow water and close to the beach. It was my first time snorkeling so i didn't... More
