“50/50 on this.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

The beach is beautiful for snorkeling and feeding fish- it's really a lot of fun! But there are sometimes pollution notices for the beach. I don't know how safe it is when the notices are out.

“Great beach to snorkel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

I have been to this beach several times. I always have a great time, swimming and snorkeling. I can even stand up out by the flag. There is lots of staghorn and finger coral. Plenty of fish to see and photgraph with a cheap, disposable underwater camera.
Freshwater often mixes with saltwater here, so the water may be cloudy in spots due to this. Just move to another spot and the water will clear up.
One week, I was there, and I joined a free tour by a hydrologist, giving us a background on the hydrology and geology of Ypoa beach and Guam. Lots of great activities here.

“Really great... but not quite the best on Tumon Bay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

I would say that this beach is really great and stunning... but not quite as good as 'Tumon Beach' which is right in the centre of Tumon Bay. Ypao Beach Park is more on the south side of the bay.

Ypao Beach's parking is free and easy. The car park is locked in the early evening.

There are some rudimentary showers at the beach.

Don't forget your beach shoes and bottled water.

The water is beautiful and clear. It's possible to see some fish when snorkeling - but we didn't see a massive variety of fish.

“Nice beach park and play area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Visited with my 2 year old daughter and she had a great time in the play area and it's always fun to be by the beach. Bathrooms could be cleaner, but it was a nice way to spend a sunny afternoon with a picnic!
