Attractions to explore in Guam - from surfing to diving

One of the most impressive locations to be found in Guam is Two Lover’s Point. There is a local legend that says that 2 Chamorro lovers jumped to their demise from this point when they were forbidden to get married. Putting this sad love story line aside, this point offers some of the best views that the island’s shoreline has to offer. For the braver traveler, look straight down the point for a simply awesome view of the waves crashing into the rocks at the base of the mountain. It’s something you’ll never forget.

See the video below.

The Island of Guam was a sort after island for both the Americans and Japanese in World War II and there are many wrecks scattered throughout the island. If you like scuba diving, the bomb craters left from World War 2 are now home to some of the most colourful species of underwater life found anywhere in the world. However, if you’re more of a land lover, the water is so crisp and clear that you can see the colourful fish without even getting into any diving gear!

Last but not least, Guam’s inland has some of the most stunningly beautiful waterfalls. Talofofo Falls is a thirty-foot waterfall that drops into a deep pool that is open for swimming. Here you can even explore the cave where a Japanese sergeant inhabited for thirty years, still thinking World War II was being fought.

Guam is a island paradise that is worlds away from the mainland of the United States and yet is still a part of America. To experience the friendliness and tranquility of Pacific life, you must visit this emerald island gem!
