Beaches

 

Guam offers some of the most pristine white sandy beaches in the world. It is not hard to appreciate the peacefullness and the tranquility of the beaches on Guam. The weather is always warm and tropical here providing locals and visitors 365 days of beach weather per year. 

 

Being a tiny tropical island in the Pacific Ocean, without a doubt tourists won't have any problems finding one of the many fabulous beaches which make up the coast line of Guam.  A white sandy beach is just a short distance from any location in Guam and visitors should enjoy a day at the beach at least once, if not most of the time,  while vacationing on the island.  The north, west and south coasts of Guam are for the most part lined with white sandy beaches popular among local beach-goers and vacationers  while the east coast of the island consists of jagged and rising cliff lines which are secluded and more for fishing activities.

Scuba Diving


Guam scuba diving is perhaps one of the most popular things to do in the waters surrounding the island. Guam‘s exceptionally clear waters that maintain temperature between 82-86 degrees year round, varied undersea life, unspoiled coral reefs and a number of World War II airplane and ship wrecks make it one of the best diving destinations in the world. Located just off the Marianas Trench, the deepest part of the ocean in the world, Guam offers the dedicated diver numerous reefs and sheer walls, hundreds of varieties of coral and fish, dolphin watching, and wreck diving. A number of marine preserves have been established to protect Guam's undersea life which are open to, and offer great experiences, to divers and underwater photographers.

 

For the most part, scuba diving Guam is considered quite easy when compared to some of the other diving places around the world. One advantage to diving in Guam is the idyllic weather conditions. There are almost no wave swells throughout most of the year, and since the climate is incredibly moderate year round, guests can usually count on storm-free conditions.

 

Visitors who have never participated in scuba diving before will be pleased to find that there are dive schools in Guam. In order to scuba dive, it is required that you take at least some instruction, and there are plenty of opportunities to do just that on Guam. To get the best prices and times, you will want to try and book your beginning dive as far in advance as you can. Reservations can be made through Guam Troika Tours.

 

In addition to gentle harbor dives, scuba divers can also charter a boat or book a scuba diving tour. A scuba diving boat tour will travel further out from the island into the ocean, where a different variety of sea life can be viewed. Scuba diving boat tours will be more expensive than the walk-in diving available near the shore.

 

Another popular way to experience scuba diving in Guam is by night diving Guam. The advantage to night diving Guam is that a whole different sort of marine wildlife culture is available for viewing. Just like the nocturnal animals we are accustomed to on land, the ocean is home to its own group of nocturnal life, the most famous of which is the octopus. Night is by far the best time for viewing octopus and some other interesting sea life. Whether you find yourself on the west, east, or southern coast of Guam, scuba diving is a great way to experience the waters off of the coast of Guam and take advantage of the incredible diving conditions to suit every ability.

Shopping

 

Guam's duty free shopping status means that no tariffs are added to many quality name-brand international products. This means that lower prices on such name-brand merchandise watches, perfumes, leather goods, spirits, and other luxury products can be found as compared to the rest of the United States as well as other countries who don't have duty-free status.
 
Most of Guam's hotels on Tumon Bay have a lobby arcade and other specialty gift shops located within walking distance along Pale San Vitores Road. In addition to the luxury designer merchandise, these stores feature Micronesian handicrafts, island clothing, beach wear and other locally made gift items.

 

The Micronesia Mall in Dededo, the Guam Premier Outlets in Tamuning, K-Mart in Upper Tumon, and the Agana Shipping Center are Guam's largest shopping malls.

Guam's proximity to Asia means that handcrafted and manufactured products from such countries as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Bali, Thailand, and the Philippines are available at bargain prices in Guam's retail stores.

 

For shoppers who rise with the sun, Guam's popular flea markets are a special treat. Buyers can find everything from lawn mowers to baby clothes, plants to pets. Hot snacks and beverages are available, and many people enjoy an island-style breakfast of fried rice, eggs and meat while shopping.
