“INTENSE”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Went to Saipan on a day trip from Guam specifically to see Banzai Cliff and Suicide Cliff. Rented a car and drove the 20+ minutes there from the airport. Nothing is very far away in Saipan. At Banzai, you can literally walk to the edge of the cliff......there is no fence. Very imposing and dangerous so watch your step. Suicide cliffs are behind you about a 10 minute drive up the mountain. Not as imposing as Banzai but still worth going.
Going to these places was very surreal. But from a historical perspective, it's a must see.

“Must see site for history buff”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

Rented a scooter outside of hotel for trip to this site. Passed several cows tied near side of road. View from cliff is spectacular and it is easy to place yourself back in time to when this site received its nickname. For WWII history buffs, this is must see!

If you are interested in the amazing history of this island then Suicide Cliff is a must see attraction. Prepare yourself to be hit with the realization of the tragic events that took place here in Saipan.

“Sobering place ...”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Seeing both suicide and banzai cliffs are well worth the effort ... not only the spectacular views but the sobering history of the areas. You can almost feel the ghosts of the Japanese civilians that jumped to their deaths ...
