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

Beautiful beach. Great place to swim and sand was not very rocky. You can walk barefoot if you want too.

This park is located next to the Hilton Hotel in Tumon, Guam. The beach is great and not too crowded. If you're new to the area make sure you talk to a life guard about areas to swim since it can get dangerous at times. Their are pavilions and open fields which is great for people who want to relax... More

Lots of fish close to shore. If the tide is coming in then it is bit hard to get out to the corral where the fish are. Very nice for snorkeling as the access is so easy.

Ypao Beach is the beach where I went swimming when I was a kid, having grown up on Guam in the 70's. It was wonderful to see it again and to see that it hadn't changed all that much in almost 30 years. It's still as beautiful as ever. The coral sand may be a little rough for some people's... More

Ypao beach is a wonderful area especially if you're not looking to spend money to entertain yourself. The beach area is free to visit and it isn't restricted to specific hours like Ritidian Beach/Point is. I like to list pros and "warnings" for reviews. Please look below. First of all, I have been to Ypao beach many times. I currently... More

My husband and i drove around looking for this place. We thought it'd be easy, but it never is. The beach was a bit crowded-- good for families, not so much for just a couple trying to enjoy their vacation. There's picnic tables and there might be bbq pits (not very sure). We didn't snorkel because it didn't look like... More

Very good beach. This beach is located near Hilton Hotel and Proa (Tumon). During weekdays, there aren't many people around so you can enjoy yourself well. Great visibility in the water. The water is not that deep and you can see many fishes. The current is not fast here. But, as you go along the coast to the north, the... More
