Tumon Things to Do

    by machomikemd Updated Nov 14, 2013

    What elso to do after the endless shopping in Guam but to swim at the Beaches of Tumon Bay Right?

    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 Restaurants

  • by vividvivian Updated Mar 16, 2007

    how should i say... that night i was a bit hungry and all what i wanted was a bowl of noodle. i walked and i found this Vietnamese restaurant, i was quite busy inside and thought it must be a not bad one. i got in, and just like going home, comfy atmosphere. got a seat, looked at the menu then ordered a combo noodle (2 shrimps, some slice chicken and meat with vieggy) i was a bit too much garlic smell... i personally do not hate garlic, but i think they have put too much into the bowl... so finally i could not taste how good this bowl of noodle supposed to be.
    and this bowl of noodle cost me USD8.00 which i found it not worth as the taste was just so so to me.

    soccer uniform-like menu :D feel like at home... view from my table my bowl of noodle close up

Tumon Nightlife

    Club USA, with a variety of rocking music, many international entertainment of performing dancers with pole aerobics, flips, costumes, high heels, etc., but what makes this little club so special are memorabilia of military ship and flight squad stickers that align the stage, open 7:pm til 2:am and til 4:am Friday, Saturdays, & day before holidays. The only thing as wild as the entertainment at Club USA would be PIC's dinner show, with King Kong like set, performers in wild jungle costumes doing fireshow to echoing drum beats. Just make sure after a wild night of partying away that you're in walking distance of your hotel, take a cab, or have a sober designated driver.

    Dress Code: CASUAL... Enter with a shirt, shorts or pants, and shoes... but can't guarantee you'll leave with your t-shirt or underwear elastic band. The club does have t-shirts that say Club USA if you need a t-shirt.

Tumon Transportation

    The hotel row in Tumon is so close to the shopping centers that most tourists find walking around to be a more convenient (not to mention healthier as well as fun) mode of transportation. In general, Guam is a fairly safe place to walk around, even at night. You will see locals and tourists mingling and enjoying themselves at any of the local hangouts. Also, because Guam's economy is very much tourist-based and receives a majority of its tourists from Japan (I believe it's safe to say), you will find that most businesses hire staff who speak Japanese rather fluently (if not completely fluent). Konichiwa! (Not that I speak it at all...lol!)

    if you are getting tired of shopping at ABC store, JP store is another option. it's a lot more spacious, various items from clothes to shot glasses. next to the stores are anothere shops and restaurant. Just cross the street, wil be DFS, so convenient.

Tumon Local Customs

    The locals and tourists make the island a very warm and friendly place. And although restaurants offer delicious cuisine, you'll find locals having picnics on the beach (under picnic shelters even when it rains!) and it isn't peculiar to receive an invitation to join them in their feast! Chamorros (the locals) have a very friendly and easygoing attitude and will find every occasion to have a party or celebrate...so go on and join in the fun!
