Beaches on Guam Klick Discover

Welcome to Paradise!

Why do we love tropical beaches? Could it be the soothing salt water, calming waves, or the company we bring with us to soak up the sun? Whatever your answer, Guam is world famous for providing a long list of white sand beaches. Some require a little more effort to reach with mile long hikes through green jungles that engulf the senses and others barely require the most comfortable of sandals as you are transported from resort lined shores to calm cooling waters.

Although every beach has its adventurous side, we do advise that every visitor heed local advisories and bring proper footwear when trekking over rocky sections to more secluded shores.

Klick Discover Tips: Always check the weather and ALWAYS BRING SUNSCREEN! Many beaches off the beaten path could be closed due to weather or ocean conditions. Relaxing tropical beaches are known to help you disconnect and lose track of time. The more time you spend in the tropical sun, the more sunscreen you’ll need.
