We had to venture out a ways to get to good snorkeling, but once we found it, the snorkeling was great! The water stays relatively shallow, and there was a very attentive lifeguard in his beach hut watching through binoculars and what not, so this...More

ヒルトンホテル前のイパオビーチを海岸に平行にまっすぐ進むと、サンゴがびっしり群生しています。わりと遠くですが、子供でも足がたつほどの浅瀬なので、誰でも行けると思います。残念ながら白化したり、人に踏まれて死んでいるサンゴも多いで、サンゴを踏まないように、ところどころにある砂地を見つけて、そこを通っていくと、広範囲の生きたサンゴの群生が現れます。Going straight Ypao Beach in front of Hilton Hotels parallel to the shore, Coral grows in colonies closely. It is far, but anyone can go relatively because even a child is shallows as a foot stands. Unfortunately gregariousness of extensive live coral appears when I...More

We bought some snorkeling equipment in the ABC store nearby. The water is very clean and there are lots of carols and fishes. The carols reef are just 200-300m away from the coast. The only disadvantage of the fishes and carols is not diversified enough.

This was the start and finish point of the Guam Marathon. The park itself is spacious but at that time, it was covered with tourists and visitors, as well as the organizers. Although they try arranging it nicely, it was still very chaotic. Some people...More

How much for the snorkeling equipment in Abc store Guam?
6 May 2017|
Response from Cervantez | Reviewed this property |
The ABC stores have snorkels that range from 10 USD all the way up to 40 USD. I bought my son one for 20 and it works fine. There are also several other shops in the area that sell snorkel, SCUBA, and surfing items.

Do we have to pay a fee to enter the park/use the facilities? Do you recommend we bring our own snorkeling gear?

Park use is free. During the day it is very safe and family oriented!
