10 Things You Must See & Do When Visiting Guam
Guam is a small island, only 32 miles long, so you might wonder how much there really is to see or do there. Well, the answer is a lot. Depending on how much time you have on the island, and how much of it you want to spend on the beach, you probably won’t have time to do everything. You may not want to do everything.
That said, here are 10 things you really should do and see while in Guam.
- TaoTao Tasi Dinner Show
Accompanied by an all you can eat buffet; the TaoTao Tasi dinner show is a gorgeous spectacle. This special show features performances of ancient Chamorro warriors, dancers from the Tahiti Islands and Samoan fire dancers.
It’s great for couples and families. The best part? It’s right on the beach in Tumon, so you won’t have too far to go.
- Shark’s Cove
Speaking of the beach, check out Shark’s Cove beach while you’re there. Because of the half mile hike it takes to get there, this beach is usually empty of other vacationers. That makes it worth the exercise in our book.
- Big Sunset Dinner Cruise
Enjoy a romantic evening or a fun family dinner on a multi-level catamaran. Enjoy a un-paralled view of Guam’s night sky away from the lights of Tumon. Maybe you’ll get lucky and see some dolphins.
- The Southern Hills
You could spend your entire vacation in the capital, or you could see the rest of the island nation. Rent a car and head south where you’ll find beautiful nature spots, historical and cultural sites, and sparkling beaches.
- SandCastle Guam
Love Vegas style shows? Then SandCastle Guam is for you. Enjoy Guam’s family friendly magic show as a casual show or as a formal night out with dinner. This show was rated as Guam’s best tourist attraction by the Guam Visitors’ Bureau and as a Traveler’s Choice on TripAdvisor.
Note: The dress code requests no beach wear.
- War in the Pacific Historical Park
For history and WWII enthusiasts we recommend a visit to the War in the Pacific Historical Park. Run by the U.S. National Park Service, this site commemorates the battles of the Pacific theater in WWII. Here you can tour battlefields, gun emplacements, trenches and historic structures.
- Fort Santa Agueda
Another must see for history lovers, Fort Santa Agueda is the only surviving Spanish fort in Hagåtña. Built in 1800, this fort occupied a strategic position that kept it in use through WWII.
- Injaran Pools Beach
A great spot for nature lovers, the natural pools at Injaran Beach are formed by the area’s unique geology. The clear water means that you can see tropical fish and other sea creatures in their natural habitat.
- Gun Beach
While this beach isn’t so off the beaten path, Gun beach is great for snorkelers and divers. But remember to bring beach shoes or diving booties to protect your feet from the corals.
10) Ride the Ducks
A fun tour option for families and people who like amphibious landing crafts, the ducks are a unique sightseeing tour that takes place on land and in the water all in one vehicle.
