Guam is the largest and southernmost island in the Mariana Islands archipelago. Guam enjoys a typical warm tropical climate with two seasons. The dry season runs from January to June, the rainy season from July to December.
Pleasantly warm for most of the year, the major draws to this island are its natural resources and beautiful scenery. Guam also has a remarkable heritage brought about by hundreds of years of being under colonial rule and the culture of the Chamorro people. Outside the historic capital, the landscapes are mostly rural and natural sceneries. There are many natural points of interests such as parks, beaches and hiking trails. Here are a few of the good reasons to visit Guam.
The capital of the island and the seat of government, Hagatna offers plenty of historic sightseeing spots such as Spanish Era buildings, WWII fortifications, stone bridges, monuments and churches. The Chamorro Village with its night market is also worth a visit.
UnderWater World Guam
This popular attraction is one of the longest tunnel-aquariums in the world and the only oceanarium in Guam. The aquarium features over 2,000 animals representing more than 80 different species. Many of the animals included in the aquarium are native to Guam and the surrounding Marianas Islands. Its main exhibit is a tunnel of almost a hundred meters length under a salt-water aquarium which contains more than 24 sharks among other marine animals. The live shark feeding session are one of the highlights in the aquarium.
Two Lovers' Point
Not to be missed is the island's most famous landmark, a dramatic and steep cliffside in Northern Guam overlooking the Philippine Sea. According to ancient Chamorro legend, two lovers, forbidden from being together in life, leaped from the cliff so that they could be together in the afterlife. Today, it is a famous look-out point and a popular wedding venue.
Also in the northernmost part of the island of Guam, Ritidian Point is known for its magnificent scenery and more. Ritidian Point is also the location of the archaeological site of a pre-Magellan Chamorro village, a former barrier reef that is now a 500-foot limestone cliff and the nesting beaches of the endangered green sea turtles.
