The short boat ride to Managaha Island brings you a delightful spot to snorkel, sunbathe and - if you wish - feel like a castaway on this small island. Beautiful beaches and views - a great place for a change of pace, to relax and to to enjoy the waters of the Philippine Sea.

This review is quite late. The Managaha Island is a beautiful small island which is famous for its with white sand beach and crystal clear waters. It is a short ferry boat ride from Garapan. There is a restaurant that serves decent food and drinks so no need to bring your own. People come here for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba... More

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

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
