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.

The best beach and sea I ever seen. The best place for swimming and snorkeling. The sands and water are clean and pure in there. In addition, if you want to go to Managaha, you should prepare some food and equipment for diving or exchange clothes. Also prepare the protection in case of sunburn. The restaurants in Managaha were just... More

This weekend was the first time in my 20 years around Saipan that I actually made to Managaha. I have usually poo/pooed it as was so touristy. Well, it is that, but it does have great water, sand and sun. Unfortunately there have been a number of deaths over that past few months (stupid is as stupid does) and people... More

A boat trip will take you to this small island not far from shore. It boasts a lovely beach, provides for snorkel adventures and a prime picnic spot.
