    Visit the Guam National Wildlife Refuge

    by etfromnc Written Oct 4, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Established in 1993, this 832-acre refuge was inaccessible to civilians for most of the 20th Century, as it was a restricted military area. All 832 acres are worthy of a visit but the must see locations are Puntan Dos Amantes (Two Lovers Point) and Ritidian Point, the northernmost point of Guam. Two Lovers Point derives its name from an old Chamorro legend and is highlighted by a sheer 400-foot white limestone cliff where these star-struck lovers supposedly met for their last time. The cliff offers a panoramic view of Guam's west coast and the Philippine Sea. The forest that covers most of the 832 acre Wildlife Refuge is home to the endangered Marianas fruit bat.
    An unspoiled jewel of natural beauty, Ritidian Point lies on the northernmost tip of Guam. The ‘Point’ with its pristine sandy beaches is relatively newly accessible to the public and is the home of some of Guam's most pristine beaches.

    Fiesta Resort Guam

    by machomikemd Written Apr 20, 2012

    The Fiest Resort Guam is a things to Do Tip too! Why? it has the best view of Tumon Bay since it is located across the Middle Part of Tumon Bay plus the beach is an easy walking distance from the lobby and the swimming pools. While it doesn't have the extensive pool areas like the Pacific Islands Club or the Mariott or the Hilton Hotel, you have a wonderful view of the Tumon Bay from both the north and south sides due to the middle location of the hotel and the beaches are not full of people here unlike in the Outrigger Hotel area since the place is far from Pleasure Islan. It also has some dining options like the World Cafe, Haagen Daz Ice Cream House, Seaport Steakhouse and the only Chamorro Cultural Show cum Dinner in Tumon, The Fiesta Beachside Barbecue and Cultural Show.

    Tumon Bay (3) Swimming at The Bay

    by machomikemd Written Apr 20, 2012

    Part THREE of My Tumon Bay tips with More Pictures of Swimming at TUMON BAY and BEACH!

    Tumon Bay is part and Parcel of the Tumon District of Tamuning, Guam and The Assorted Beach and Water Activities along the Bay is part of the tourism in Guam since tourist like the japanese not only go here to shop or play golf or eat but to swim and sun bath and scuba dive and other water activities too. Tumon Bay is both the cultural center and tourism center of Guam. There is so much history here since it was inhabited by the earliest Chamorro settlers and also later became an important site for Spanish missionaries and settlers.

    Visitors and locals flock to the bay’s 1 1/2 mile long beach to swim, fish, snorkel or simply stroll around and enjoy being in the outdoors. Snorkelers will be surprised to see octopi, shellfish, colorful corals, and reef fish in the shallow water. The waters are perfect especially inside the area that is enclosed by a long coral reef.

    And again, like what I've said Previously, Tumon Bay is Beside the lots of shopping centers, which makes the city a major shopping stop while in Guam (why it is called the Mini Waikiki or the Paris of the Pacific). The shopping centers to visit are Duty Free Galleria, Tumon Sands Plaza, Acanta Mall, The Plaza, and JP Superstore (please see my separate tips for it). Shopping anywhere in Guam is quite a treat because the entire island of Guam is duty free.

    Tumon

    by machomikemd Written Apr 20, 2012

    Tumon District of Tamuning is the Main Tourist Area of Guam, it is here that you can find the greatest concentration of Shops, Bars, Restaurants, Hotels, Luxury Brands and Malls that are located is a small area roughly Two Square Miles ( 5.5 square kilometers). It is often called the Mini Waikiki but is has more luxe shops than waikiki and the beaches are better since the sands here are powdery white sands. It is also called the Paris of the Pacific. Tumon Recieves almot all of the estimated 1.2 millions tourists that goes to guam every year (70% of then are Japanese). See my Separate things to do, Food and Shopping tips on the several establishments in and around tumon.

    I will do a separate Things To Do Tips for Tumon Bay.

    According to Wikipedia:

    Shopping

    Tumon, as being Guam's premier shopping district has many malls and shopping arcades to choose from such as:

    Duty Free Galleria (DFS)
    Acanta Mall
    Tumon Sands Plaza
    The Plaza
    JP Superstore

    Because of all the luxury shops and midscale stores in the city, Tumon is often called "the Paris of the Pacific".
    [edit] Activities

    Tourists flock to the beaches to enjoy the clear water and a day full of activities. Popular attractions include shopping. The central area of Hotel Row is home to the largest tunnel aquarium in the world, an attraction known as the Daring Sling Shot (riders are strapped into a ball that's shot upward on a wire and brought back down), and the popular Magic on Ice Show at the Sand Castle. Now Tumon is viewed by some as a "mini-Waikiki", with Hawaiian style fire dances. There are also many Guamanian shows available.

    The beaches in Tumon are all wildlife preserves. Fishing is allowed in certain areas, but fishermen must stand on the beach to cast their nets or fishing lines. Walking into the water to fish is illegal.

    One big Tourist Shopping location is Micronesia Mall, which has expanded and added a food court and a Macy's as the sole anchor store. Another big shopping location is a 24 hour Kmart, which is as big as any standard Kmart on the mainland US. Parking is frequently full and there is parking on the roof. Both Micronesia Mall and Kmart are off Hotel Row, with buses frequently running between the shops and the hotels.
    [edit] Night Life and Entertainment
    Night in Pleasure Island, Tumon

    Tumon has many dance clubs, several strip clubs and much more to offer. The largest dance center in the city is club Blur. The Sandcastle is a Las Vegas-style attraction, with magic shows featuring tigers, flamingos and other exotic animals.

    There is currently a debate in the area on the subject of "adult entertainment". Some contend the strip clubs bring in much needed tourist dollars, while others believe they scare away families.

    Tamuning is the main tourist and shopping area but most of the tourist related activities are concentrated along the Tumon Area or Hotel Row of the Pale San Vitores Road and the only areas that have tourist related activities in the general Tamuning area besides Tumon are the Antonio Won Pat International Airport, the K-Mart Superstore and the Guam Premium Outlets.

    There is actually not much a thing to see in Agana Heights Village of Guam but if you want to have spectacular views of the Tumon Bay and Tamuning Area from this part since the views of the Asan Lookout does not allow you to see Tamuning and Tumon Areas. Since I was on a Private tour with just 3 persons and the tour guide slash driver with up. He let us up a hill here at Agana Heights to have wonderful Pictures of the Tumon Bay and Tamuning and Hagatna Areas from a good vantage point. We then Proceeded to Asan Bay Overlook then across the east side of the island for the Pacific War Memorial Museum at Ordot-Chalan-Pago.

    Fish Eye Marine Park: Underwater Observation Area

    by machomikemd Written Apr 20, 2012

    Part Two of my Fish Eye Marine Park Observation Deck Area with picturesn of the Underwater Observatory.

    The Fish Eye Marine Park is one of the famous destinations in Piti. Among the attractions in the Park area the visitor center, the marine preserve around the piti bomb hole and the underwater observatory. It is located side by side to the Piti bomb Hole and is connected to the mainland via a 1,000 foot wooden bridge (called two lovers bridge). It is owned by a Japanese Company and it features a Super Typhoon proof Underwater Observatory, located 31 feet above sea level and an Upper Deck. If you don't want to pay $ 80 for the submarine Nautilus Ride nearby that costs $ 80 per person, this is your better alternative since the entrance fees are only $ 10 for adults and $ 7 for children and you can have all the time to look around the Observation deck and the Underwater Observatory without getting cramped like in a mini submarine.

    Opens: 8:00 am to 7:00 pm everday

    according to their website:

    Fish Eye's unique facility is the first and only underwater observatory in Micronesia. Located in the center of the famous "Piti Bomb Hole", a very popular dive location, you can see this site's amazingly diverse and condensed population of marine life. The observatory structure and pier also provides a special habitat for fish and other marine life. This extra living area enhances the diversity of over 200 fish species with a hiding place similar to the nearby natural coral reefs.
    The boardwalk that leads from shore to observatory is 1,000 ft long. It crosses a portion of spectacular Piti bay. You can enjoy the gentle sea breeze and take in beautiful view. In late afternoon, you can absorb the beauty of the western sunset. Once at the observatory, the 360-degree upper deck allows you to enjoy views of the ocean, the coral reefs, outer barrier reef and Guam majestic mountains. The air-conditioned inner vestibule has a selection of marine art. You can then walk down our spiral staircase to the lower deck. You are now safely beneath the sea and can view the ocean world from 24 windows (16 rectangular and 8 round). Here, dry and comfortable, you will see Piti's amazing marine life and underwater coral gardens.
    Constructed with your safety and comfort in mind, the finest Japanese shipbuilding technology was used to make this undersea observatory. The observatory can withstand the power of a super typhoon. It is 71 ft. high, the size of a seven-story building. The top 40 feet is above sea level and bottom 31 feet below sea level. It weighs 230 tons! We know you will not find anything else like it in the Pacific.

    Scuba Diving In Piti Bomb Hole (2)

    by machomikemd Written Apr 19, 2012

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Part two of my Scuba diving in Piti Bomb Hole with more Scuba in Bomb Hole Pictures

    The Famous Piti Bomb Holes is one of the most popular of the scuba diving sites around guam due to the easy accesibility of the area and the relative shallowness of the reef and the bomb hole. This is a good area for the amateur scuba divers and beginners. The Piti Bomb Holes are easily accessible from the beach. This dive is great for novice divers because of its shallow depth, 21 ft to 33 ft, and the abundance of schooling fish. The holes were originally thought to be left by bombs used during the WWII US amphibious landing, but it has since been discovered that they were formed by underwater caves that collapsed. Piti is a marine reserve so there is no fishing allowed.

    The fish eye marine park is in the middle of the Bomb hole.
