Destination Information for Guam

Guam is a US Island Territory, situated in Micronesia in the Western Pacific. It played a significant role in World War II, and is home to some of the most strategically-important US military bases. The War In The Pacific National Historical Park is in the Southern region of the island near the main gate of the US Naval Base where visitors can see battlefields, trenches and other historic reminders of the country’s difficult past.

Guam is a multicultural island, and the most populated on Micronesia. The capital, Hagåtña, is full of nightlife, bustling markets and historic buildings. Most hotels, and therefore most tourists, can be found in Tumon Bay, a commercial area popular for duty-free shopping. This central region is where you’ll find most to do, including beach sports, dolphin watching and a plethora of bars and restaurants.

If you’re looking for a more ‘authentic’ island experience in Guam, away from the commercial district and American accents, you’re advised to explore areas further afield. For those keen to understand more of the history and culture of Guam, you’ll be fascinated to visit the village of Umatac on the Western coast. This is where the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan arrived in 1521 when sailing around the globe, and in March every year, his landing is re-enacted in thrilling detail.

Malaria and regions within country:

Malaria is not normally present in Guam.
