Managaha Island is the best islands!!!! That's a paradise I wanna live forever. Too bad, that it's small islands, and nobody can stay there till late. But I love the sand, i'm in love with the blue pure water and the things that live in there :) Love this paradise and want to go there soon

Managaha is tiny island in Saipan lagoon, but there is nothing tiny about it! Great snorkeling, a beautiful view all around, rich history and enjoyable walk if one decide to go around the island. Managaha has been named many times the Best Saipan Beach by Asian magazines. Those interested in underwater world but not having scuba diving experience will enjoy... More

Every visitor and resident must go and experience the natural beauty both on land and underwater that managaha island has to offer. The white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters are the prime models of what beaches and swim areas should look and feel like. Bring a snorkle and goggles and find out why the island is ranked in the... More

I don't know why this site does't let me go further back on the date because I went a while back but it only allows me to say I went no earlier than last year. Anyways, this was a day trip I took with my family. A small island, great for bbqing, nice beach to swim in and nice for... More

Ok, we live on Saipan. Saipan is gorgeous, but the lovely ferry ride out to Managaha adds yet another dimension to the term paradise island. Amazing snorkeling in crystal clear waters, tons of activities available via Tasi Tours, and the most amazing white sand beach you'll see anywhere. Picnic areas are available with grills to do your own thing, or... More

I live here {1 year now} and will never tire of visiting "Gilligans" Island as we lovingly call it. Just taking the ferry out is a wonderful experience watching the island fall away and trying to name landmarks. The colors of the water change brilliantly. The ferry crew is wonderful. Snorkeling is better than I imagined. Fish are friendly and... More

I have been living on Saipan since 1990, and Managaha is still a favorite for my family. The snorkling is excellent, there are no mosquitos, or other pests, and on most days there is a comfortable trade wind. It is fun to take pictures of the sharks, but don't worry, they are only friendly black tips that don't bother anyone.

The sea is very clean. I saw a lots of fishes. People can do a lots of marine sports. I did snorkeling. They provided snorkeling tour with guides. But it was enough to buy snorkeling glasses and see fishes in the shallows.

It was fun taking a boat out here and riding the banana boat. Snorkeling was so-so...I think too many people have been out there tromping around on the coral. The island is totally overrun with tourists by mid-morning, so get there early if you want to have the place to yourself for a bit.
