Northern Mariana Islands travel guide

Islands · Caves · Nature & Parks
An archipelago of 15 islands north of Guam, Northern Mariana Islands remains best known for its tropical weather, excellent scuba diving, and sobering historical reminders of World War II. Originally settled by the Chamorro people, the seemingly remote archipelago has endured a surprisingly turbulent history thanks to its strategic location in the South Pacific. Ferdinand Magellan landed in 1521 and claimed the islands for the Spanish, but since then the archipelago came under successive German, Japanese, and finally U.S. rule. A holiday in Northern Mariana Islands typically involves lazing on pristine beaches, enjoying succulent tropical fruits, and scuba diving among the many impressive offshore shipwrecks.
