This is by far the most popular beach on Guam. There are people everywhere, so be careful if you leave your things unattended. Travelling alone, so I asked the lifeguard to watch my stuff, which he thankfully did. The snorkelling was fantastic, and it was a good place to learn. Go at high tide if you can, as low tide...

We had a very nice morning snorkeling experience. Park has showers and guards. But the most important it has a lot of beautiful fish and corals.

During my stay on Guam this was the only opportunity I had to go snorkelling, and it was absolutely beautiful. The bay was easy to get to and to park at, the beach was patrolled, the water was warm and crystal clear and the coral and fish life magnificent. I stayed in far, far longer than I intended to and...

Such an easy beach to access with such great snorkeling. Right in the heart of Tumon Bay...just wade into the water and start snorkeling...the fish and coral are right there. Awesome!

This beach is actually part of a long stretch of beach, with the side of Ypao beach park more for the locals/public, while the ones on the right side are where the resorts are and therefore, the tourists. The right side have a smaller beach front depth, while the one at Ypao have bigger beach front. More beach for people... More

This is a very tourist beach but it is my favorite! This is a nice beach to bring the family to for the day. Not the best beach to cook out but the water is beautiful and the sand is nice. Bring a cooler and some towels, maybe an umbrella and you're set!

My first ever snorkeling experience was done in this beach. Nearly no waves, shallow depth with plenty of small fishes swimming by the corals. My favorite spot on this beach to snorkel is anywhere to the right of the lifeguard station (if you are facing the beach with the lifeguard station behind you). Lots of small fishes swimming around you.... More
