The park itself has plenty of walking or running trails and plenty of space to hang out solo or with friends. The beach strand is a little narrow, but that might have just been high tide; in any case, it's wide enough to stroll along...More

We had to venture out a ways to get to good snorkeling, but once we found it, the snorkeling was great! The water stays relatively shallow, and there was a very attentive lifeguard in his beach hut watching through binoculars and what not, so this...More

ヒルトンホテル前のイパオビーチを海岸に平行にまっすぐ進むと、サンゴがびっしり群生しています。わりと遠くですが、子供でも足がたつほどの浅瀬なので、誰でも行けると思います。残念ながら白化したり、人に踏まれて死んでいるサンゴも多いで、サンゴを踏まないように、ところどころにある砂地を見つけて、そこを通っていくと、広範囲の生きたサンゴの群生が現れます。Going straight Ypao Beach in front of Hilton Hotels parallel to the shore, Coral grows in colonies closely. It is far, but anyone can go relatively because even a child is shallows as a foot stands. Unfortunately gregariousness of extensive live coral appears when I...More

You might think that finding a good beach on a tropical island would be an easy take right? Not as easy as you might think. Guam is a beautiful place, no doubt about it, but the beaches are loaded with coral and the reefs can...More

We bought some snorkeling equipment in the ABC store nearby. The water is very clean and there are lots of carols and fishes. The carols reef are just 200-300m away from the coast. The only disadvantage of the fishes and carols is not diversified enough.

The ABC stores have snorkels that range from 10 USD all the way up to 40 USD. I bought my son one for 20 and it works fine. There are also several other shops in the area that sell snorkel, SCUBA, and surfing items.

Park use is free. During the day it is very safe and family oriented!
