    Sceanery from the Heavens

    by city_guy Updated Oct 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A trip around the entire island just watching sceneary will be enough to make you want to live there.

    Rent a car, drive around and check out the breath taking views. You won't regret it, I promise. And you'll want to bring that good camera with a lot of film or memory.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another site noted for mass suicides of Japanese civilians and soldiers at the end of the Battle of Saipan in WW2 is Suicide Cliff, on the north end of the island.

    A 250 Meter tall sheer rock face, Suicide Cliff offers excellent views of the north end of the island of Saipan, including an old Japanese military air strip.

    Bird Island

    by kenmerk Written Mar 12, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bird Island is a rocky islet just off the north east coast of Saipan, which serves as a wildlife sanctuary for birds. (Hence the name) There is a scenic lookout just south of the island, or alternately a hiking trail that leads down to the beach. From the beach you can wade out to the island, if you so desire...

    The Grotto

    by kenmerk Written Mar 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The grotto is a unique limestone cavern that is located on the north east side of Saipan. Underwater passages fill the cavern with water, and occasionally marine life such as sea turtles and your occasional Great White "tipped reef" Shark...

    Follow the steep stairs cut in the stone down to water level. This will make a unique entry into your dive log book... (or just snorkel if you don't feel like lugging all your dive equipment up and down...)

    Grotto

    by Badodge Updated Sep 26, 2010

    In 2003, you had to walk down to see the Gotto, which wasn't bad BUT walking up is not for the weak. In 2010 we found a landing was added so you can look down into the gotto-what an improvement

    by Badodge Updated Apr 19, 2004

    The walk down the stone steps is not too bad, but it takes longer to walk back up. It well worth the trip.
    The grotto is a small pool of water that has underwater passages to the ocean

  • Bell Tower

    by Badodge Written Apr 17, 2004

    An old Bell Tower, that is located around several store. Easy to miss. Will take 5 minutes to see. There is no charge, but then there is no one to explain its history.
