Things To Do With Kids in Guam

Guam may be famed for its military bases rather than its tourism sector, but this beautiful tropical island is a hidden paradise for families to sneak away to on vacation. The Micronesian nation offers beautiful white beaches, exotic wildlife, and fascinating culture and history.

Naturally, many vacationers go there to enjoy all of the aquatic activities Guam has to offer, and it is well-known amongst people who visit the island that it has some of the best diving spots in the world. Mesmerizing coral reefs and ancient shipwrecks lie beneath the surface, forming colorful and exciting underwater worlds that are abundant with marine life. Above the surface, water sports like jet skiing, kayaking, parasailing, and paddle boarding provide everyone with plenty of fun in the sun. Best of all, if you’re from the US, there's no need to bring your passport to visit this official American territory! 

If you have a family that’s not afraid to take on adventures and loves everything to do with the ocean, then Guam is the perfect paradise for you. Below, we have listed several great spots to visit with the kids and activities to do that include both aquatic activities and other forms of fun!

Ypao Beach Park

255 Gun Beach Rd, Tumon, Guam

This beautiful beach is located right next to one of the largest public parks in Tamuning/Tumon and is also an archeological site. Ypao Beach Park is an extremely popular spot among tourists who like to experience the beauty of island nature. Additionally, it is a great place for picnics and family gatherings. 

At Ypao Beach Park, you can take long walks on the white sand beaches or go snorkeling in the pristine waters of the sea and discover the beautiful corals underwater. This gorgeous sandy beach also has areas nearby where you can play sports, a playground for the kids, and public restrooms. In addition to all of this, the beach park also conducts events and concerts that are held regularly. 

There are several lifeguards at this beach that keep a close eye on anyone who enters the water, meaning parents can feel a bit safer about bringing their kids to swim here. An additional bonus is that this beach has no entrance fees and visitors are allowed to bring their own food and drink for picnics! Just make sure to clean up after yourself so you can help to keep the beach and the ocean a clean and safe place for everyone to enjoy.
