  • I love this beach. Even on low tide days there is still water that comes up to the shore that you can wade in. It’s also a great place to watch the sunset, snorkel, and on good weather days Paddle...

  • I do a lot of running near this beach and always found it to be full of activity and fun. A nice place to sit out in the sand and get your tan on.

  • Matapang Beach is located in Tumon Bay. This beach is one of the few beaches, not only on the shore, but also covered with sand in the water, without stones and corals. Matapang Beach is very shallow, so families with children often rest here. There is a zoo near the beach. The sea in this part of Guam is very calm, without currents and strong waves. The water is crystal clear, blue with emerald green iridescence. Matapang Beach is small, clean and well maintained, several holiday houses, picnic areas, shower rooms and toilets. Matapang Beach is a good place for snorkeling, fish are not afraid of people and beautiful coral reefs are located near the beach. There are many canoes on the beach, constantly arriving or swimming on the beach. Many local residents and tourists arrive for special reasons to see the most incredible sunset on Matapang Beach Guam
  • Got the recommendation from local celeb Lybia Chun (thank you!). There are not a lot of tourists and the beach was not crowded at all. Finding the entrance via car was a little challenging. You have to enter by the zoo and then turn left once in the main lot. Drive towards the end of the lot and the parking lot for the beach is on the right for close access. You can also park by the zoo and use the pedestrian path (the zoo is currently closed because of COVID). The water is so calm and warm. There is very little coral. This is the ideal beach for swimming - no strong currents, pretty shallow, and there is a lifeguard on duty. Si Yu'os Ma'åse' (thank you)!
