Alupat Island, Tumon

#3 of 10 in Nature in Guam
Nature / Park · Hidden Gem · Island
Paddle out to tiny Alupat Island to enjoy an afternoon on the beach without the crowds of some of Guam's other coastal hotspots. The small, uninhabited, densely forested island sits just a short distance offshore, directly opposite one of Guam's best-known beach resorts. If you visit at low tide, you can walk out to the island across the exposed sandbar. Work out when and for how long to visit Alupat Island and other Tumon attractions using our handy Tumon online trip maker.

  • A rocky little island. Easy to walk to at low tide or to wade and walk to at high tide. Surrounded by blue starfish and sea cucumbers. Bring sandals if want to walk to the top. Some spiderwebs. I don't understand why more people don't stay at this area when it's more beautiful than the main strip, and cheaper.
  • The island is small but there is a trail with great views. When the tide is out you can wade through thigh high water all the way to the island from any point on the main beach. Watch for the spiders.
