We have been snorkeling other places and each was better than the last. Check the tide charts and be sure to go at high tide. It's easier to float above the coral and fishes. The water was warm and clear. The fishes were plentiful. The coral was beautiful. There were piles of stag horn coral and mounds of green coral-... More

Very good beach. Pleasant and filled with locals. The best beach to relax in Guam after Ritidian/Coco Palm.

The best snorkelling experience for non-swimmers! It's low tide in the afternoon and in the depth of knee level, there's a good variety of marine lives swimming close to you! Perfect for non-swimmers to take a glance of the marine lives & this can be additive :)

Most of tumon bay snorkeling as far as reef life has seen better days. There are patches of live and dead brown stag horn coral and some fields of yellow pocillapora that are somewhat impressive. Fish life is good for smaller varieties, wrasses, tangs, ballyhoo, damsels. The better snorkeling as odd as it sounds is closer to shore in the... More

Best time to be here is 4pm to 7pm everyday -- and see the diverse glorious sunsets of Guam amidst people walking and riding kayaks. Even friendly dogs join the walks. The next best time is walking on the mornings of Saturdays and Subdays, I.e. 7am-8:30am. The gentle sun rises on the opposite side on the island, so it's not... More

Located down the street from Tumon's Proa restaurant location, this beach had ample free parking and standard beach features for Guam but felt uneasy leaving vehicle unattended.

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
