Great Place to Relax (if you can access the base)

This is a great place to go if you want to relax and get away from the crowds of Tumon Bay. Other review's indicate Gab Gab is the best snorkeling on the Island, but we found... read more

This is the "main" beach located on Naval base Guam. It has everything a family needs, (bathrooms, picnic areas, etc), but as the main beach is usually busy. Great to let the lil ones splash and play, but the other beaches have better snorkeling and diving.

This is a great place to go if you want to relax and get away from the crowds of Tumon Bay. Other review's indicate Gab Gab is the best snorkeling on the Island, but we found Tumon Bay to be better. Admittedly, we are beginners so maybe we didn't do it right. Gab Gab has several shelters with barbecue pits... More

If you're in the area and have access to the base, this is a great dive or snorkel spot. Easy access from shore and the reef is in fantastic shape. There's picnic tables and showers and a staging area for your gear. We were there over July 4th weekend and the park was pretty clean except for the restrooms which... More

Very clean and well-maintained beach. There is a long strip of sand beach as well as a pool area that's about 10-12 feet deep that you can enter to swim straight out to snorkel the corals. The water here is calm since it is located in Apra Habor. Sunsets are gorgeous. Great for snorkeling, lots of corals and sea life... More

You need a military ID to access this beach on Naval Base Guam. We were visiting from Japan and had no issues getting on base and finding the beach- lots of signs. Nice covered picnic areas with tables, and BBQs. This is definitely one of the better beaches on Guam. It was quite shallow though - perhaps we were there... More

Beautiful beach. Great place to snorkle. No fishing is a plus. Picnic areas too. Restricted to military access personnel and their families.

This beach is the definition of paradise! Clear, blue waters, perfect temperature for a swim and not crowded. Unfortunately for those who do not have base access, this beach is located on the naval Station. I do recommend water shoes as it does get a little uncomfortable walking out into the water at first. If you have base access and... More

Great place to BBQ, scuba dive, snorkel, kayak swim and just being near the water. For snorkellers and scuba divers, this place is one of the safest on-island to leave your vehicle and, offers showers to rinse off. Visibility is generally excellent. I see turtles here often. Colorful reef fish are abundant.

Bring a waterproof camera....it was great to watch my granddaughter snorkel and mingle with all the fish. We packed a lunch and it became an all day adventure. Bring walking shoes (lots of sharp coral), and lots of drinking water, and, don't forget the sun protection! Majority of the local folks have served in the military, so it's not unusual,... More

This place is the best on the island. The restrooms were like any beach toilets, filled with sand and water but still the best place on the island to swim, dive, snorkel, picnic, and or relax!
