Being so rich in culture, there are just so many things to see and do for the entire family. Planning your next family vacation might seem to be a daunting task, but fear not. We’ve narrowed down the long list to what we think are the top 5 activities that each member of your family will enjoy.
Guam is home to many, many beautiful beaches that offer stunning sunsets, amazing snorkeling, water sports and more. Some are popular and easy to access, while others remain some of the island’s best kept secrets.
Here are a couple of family-friendly beaches you might want to check out:
- Asan Beach Park – The beach area is filled with coconut trees to provides shade from the warm tropical sun. There is also a large park for picnics, games, sports and just about any activity.
- Agana Beach – This is one of the largest and more accessible beach in Guam. A shallow reef lagoon extends to the horizon. The beach is lined with a war memorial, coffee shops and restaurants, all overlooking the sea. There is also a public park fully equipped with barbecue pits and seating.
There is much more beyond the beaches in Guam. The waters are filled with an active sea life, and you might enjoy taking the entire family to go dolphin watching!
A boat will take you along the coast of Guam until you catch a glimpse of the very playful spinner dolphins. These are small dolphins that thrive in the tropical waters off of Guam. Your guide will be happy to get as close as possible without harming these creatures as you watch them jump and twirl from the water. Keep a sharp eye and you might spot schools of flying fish or skipjack tuna leaping into the air around the boat. If sea conditions are good, you can even feed the fishes as you snorkel. You might even get lucky and see a bottlenose dolphin or a pilot whale further offshore.
