The beautiful island of Guam is a U.S. territory located in Micronesia in the western Pacific. It is the southernmost of the Mariana Islands chain, and is also the largest and most populated of the islands. Guam is often referred to as the core of the western Pacific and one of Micronesia’s most diverse locations; an authentic melting pot to say the least. In addition to the local Chamorro people and Americans, Guam is also home to Filipinos, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Micronesian Islanders, as well as Vietnamese, Indians, and Europeans.
Guam is a little piece of paradise that allows you the freedom to feel as if you are somewhat ‘off the grid’ while visiting this luscious island. The sunsets are stunning, and truly are not done justice by pictures alone. While I was there, I spent my days relaxing on the beach in Tumon Bay, visiting Talofofo Falls, seeing the incredible views from Two Lovers Point, paddleboarding, hiking, snorkeling, and enjoying the local cuisine and culture.
