“Best water on Guam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

This area in Piti, Guam, is the best area on Guam to swim, snorkel or dive. You can walk right from the beach. The area is protected from the waves from the reef and is always calm and clear. Recommend going on an incoming tide, to get the best visibility !!

“Crystal clear water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

Very clean and clear water. You have to walk almost to the end of the footbridge to see the corals.

“Great Snorkeling!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

It's like snorkeling in a fish bowl! We saw so many fish from small to large, even a barracuda came cruising by. The coral is really pretty, there's shallow water snorkeling to deeper water snorkeling. Park in the parking lot and walk out to the left of the pier at Fisheye Park. The walk can be tricky in low tide but worth it, you may want to wear reef shoes or booties but around the 9th column you'll be able to start swimming. During high tide you won't have to walk out far and just swim out the end of the pier. Enjoy!!

“Go when weather is not stormy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

I went to Guam during typhoon season, and tried snorkeling here. There was no typhoon when I snorkeled, but there were high waves on the reef far beyond the pier, and strong current inside the reef. It was difficult to see much of anything with the waves kicking up silt, and hard to swim out far enough to deeper water and perhaps the actual holes, which I must have missed. I did see many triggerfish and blue sea stars in the area I explored. For sure, lock your car and keep your valuables in the trunk, and take your car key into the water with you in a secure bag if at all possible. There was a uniformed gentleman in the parking lot whose occupation I was not sure of; he might work for the Fish Eye park or the local parks department to keep an eye on the cars, but be careful anyway. There were many people practicing scuba diving in this area as well, but not so many that I kept bumping into them while swimming.

“Excellent snorkelling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

A snorkeler dream!.

One just needs to follow the pier till the end and ones arrive at the Piti Bomb Holes, there are many beautiful and colorful corals to see.Gorgeous. The water is very calm and very clear which makes this very easy to dive.

Do not hesitate to wonder a bit further out to see some corals lying in pristine white sand within just a couple feets of water.

Just wonder why they keep the public restrooms on the public beach closed. Does not make sense to me.
