A trip to Guam is in the cards for you - even in the midst of COVID-19 - thanks to the introduction of the Air V&V (vaccination and vacation) program for international travelers. This summer, the island is offering to vaccinate its tourists with the brand of their choice depending on availability, which could be Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson.

Those who are aged 12 and above may get their jabs as soon as the day after their arrival, and right in the comfort of a participating hotel.

If you’re up for a challenge, an intermediate trail with a great payoff is Pagat Caves in Yigo.

There are so many things to do in Guam. Get to know more about the island’s rich marine life by taking a tour of UnderWater World Ocean Safari, which will have you walking through acrylic tunnels where you can glimpse colorful sea creatures. You may also visit the underwater observatory at Fish Eye Marine Park in Piti for another up-close sea life encounter. For a unique experience in the water that’s not on the beach, there’s a popular day cruise through Guam’s rainforests, along the rivers of Talafofo and Ugum, where you’ll learn of an old Chamorro village and the local flora and fauna.

Educate yourself with Guam’s crucial role in the Pacific Ocean theater of World War II by taking the time to visit War in the Pacific National Historical Park in Asan. History buffs may also enjoy getting acquainted with the island’s history at Guam Museum in Hagatna.

Puntan Dos Amantes, or Two Lovers Point, is a well-known seaside cliff in Tamuning that offers views of Tumon Bay and the Philippine Sea. This attraction is often associated with an old tale about doomed lovers.

4. Beaches

It’s only fitting that we include Guam’s best beaches on this list. Tumon Beach is located in the village of Tamuning. It opens to the Philippine Sea and is one of the most well-known beaches in the area. Tamuning’s lesser-known beach, Gun Beach, started gaining traction since the establishment of a restaurant but has since remained a haven for relaxation and fun under the sun. Another must-visit beach around Tumon Bay is Matapang Beach Park.

If you want to steer clear from the crowds of Tumon Bay, head over to Yigo in the island’s northernmost tip - Ritidian Point.

5. Waterfalls

Waterfalls in Guam

This island is truly filled with natural wonders, including a number of picturesque waterfalls. Located along Ugum River, Talafofo Falls is one of the most popular waterfalls in Guam and is home to a small amusement park. A destination that requires a little bit of a hike (but is well worth it!) is Tarzan Falls in Yona. If you’re on the west side of the island, see to it that you visit Sigua Falls near Santa Rita or San Carlos Falls in Yona.

For more waterfall adventures, take the time to visit Alutom Falls in Yona, Lonfit Falls in Asan, and Tinago Falls in Inarajan.
