A small island only 30 miles long and nine miles wide, the U.S. territory of Guam is known for its impeccable beaches and deep-sea diving. The island, part of Micronesia in the Pacific Ocean, bears the influence of several cultures. A Spanish colony until 1898, Guam blends that heritage with its native Chamorro customs, as well as Asian and American cultures. You can visit military sites or explore caves and waterfalls that rival the island’s prettiest beaches. Because of its location near the International Date Line, Guam’s slogan is: ‘Where America’s Day Begins’. Wouldn’t you like to wake up here?

Breathtaking scenery

Der Two Lovers Point oberhalb der Tumon Bay

Two Lovers Point is on a cliff overlooking Tumon Bay and southwestern Guam. It is named after a Chamorro maiden and her Chamorro lover. A Spanish officer took a liking to the maiden, but rather than acquiescing to her parents’ desire to marry the officer, the lovers tied their hair together and jumped off the cliff to be with each other for eternity.

Must-see museum

Jeff’s Pirates Cove is a beachside snack bar and souvenir shop with a small museum containing seaborne souvenirs as well as images and artefacts of a Japanese soldier who hid in Guam’s southern jungles for more than 28 years after World War II ended.
