I have visited Ypao beach for the past 2 days, Jan. 30th and 31st 2016. Ypao beach like almost all beaches in Guam require water shoes. The water is calm with abundant fish life. Beautiful fish are in the shallow waters that are only knee to waist deep all the way out to the outer reef. Since the water is... More

Nice beach once you are in the water. The sand is a little rough but the water is calm and there is good snorkeling to be found. We visited on a Sunday and there was plenty of space which was nice. The closest restroom was closed and there didn't seem to be any public vendors so be sure to bring... More

The best snorkeling beach in Tumon is Ypao next to the Hilton hotel. It's a protected area, so no fishermen and lots of fish.

Ypao Beach itself doesn't measure up to the nearby Tumon beach; it doesn't have the same beautiful sand and has more rocks. Overall though, Ypao is a better place to come with the family due to the large park that sits behind the beachfront where you can have picnics, play games, etc.

Ypao has pretty good snorkling. There is a huge park with lots of picnic tables and open bbqs for grilling. Sometimes there is a lifeguard on duty. The area is pretty clean.

Ypao Beach Park is a lovely spot on the water in Tamuning. Easily accessible by car, it's also close enough to walk to from many hotels in the southern part of Tumon. The beach is very clean by Guam standards-- many beaches can be littery. They also have several freshwater showers for after your swim. The grassy Park is used... More

We have been snorkeling other places and each was better than the last. Check the tide charts and be sure to go at high tide. It's easier to float above the coral and fishes. The water was warm and clear. The fishes were plentiful. The coral was beautiful. There were piles of stag horn coral and mounds of green coral-... More

Very good beach. Pleasant and filled with locals. The best beach to relax in Guam after Ritidian/Coco Palm.
