Learn about homes for sale in Agat, Guam
Agat sits on Guam’s western shore, just below Apra Harbor and Naval Base Guam. Agat has a large Chamorro population, the indigenous people of Guam. During World War II, the beaches of Agat and Asan were used by American military forces. After the war, the residents of the old Agat village were resettled to the new Agat Village, along with many displaced Chamorro people.
Agat Village is thriving today, with many businesses, restaurants, and merchants operating in the area. Parts of the old village site still exist around the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, Convent and School. Life in Agat is a bit slower paced, with many people driving up to Hagåtña, and Agana Heights, where the U.S. Naval Hospital Complex and Guam High School are located.
Things to see in the area include Agat Beach, which is part of the War in the Pacific National Historic Park. Mount Alifan also contains remnants of the war between the Americans and Japanese. Going further back in time, Agat is home two stone bridges from Guam’s Spanish-colonial era, Taleyfac and Taelayag bridges. They are both listed on the Guam and National Registers of Historic Sites.
For recreation, nearby Hap’s Reef is a popular diving and snorkeling spot. Agat also has its own small boat marina. Agat also hosts the annual Mango Festival, a three-day celebration of the fruit that includes mango judging contests, fun, games, and mango products for sale.
