This island is about 20min highspeed boat ride from Saipan. You need to join a tour (US$20) to get into the island and US$5 to enter the island. We were here about 10 years ago. Back then, there were not many people and the water is full of corals, many colorful fish and sea urchins but now almost no corals... More

Hard not to consider the 20 minute excursion to this island on an island. This is apparently still high season which partially explains a small island crawling with people. We had been forewarned, as you should be. If not a snorkeller then I might skip M as the other attractions are people, sand, a picnic and views of Saipan, all... More

This place is a great little islet for spending a half day of swimming activities. They have beautiful waters, 1 restaurant serving all, and some bathrooms so you don't have to go in the jungle. Lol. You can walk around the islet in 20 minute. Nobody lives here but some do camp out overnight.

Too many people crammed up in a small island with super over priced food that tastes real bad. They charge you 20 bucks to rent a beach chair.

DON'T MISS IT. I don't think our trip to Saipan would have been complete without the visit to Managaha Island. The island is STUNNING!!!

This is the cleanest and most visited island of the cnmi. Locals and toursists alike are amazed of the underwater treasures and sealife you can find. The sunsets and sunrises as well as the night view of the stars and lights of saipan will make you want to come back for more.

The water. The sand. The sun. A bit crowded but an incredible place to visit while in Saipan. Bring sunblock and water!

Its supposed to be famous for snorkeling but in my opinion the waters were murky and darker, rather than the clearer see-through waters. The water is not that deep so when you swim, the whole time you feel like youre gonna scrape your thighs on the coral or when walking, step on sea cucumbers. Swarming with Chinese and Korean tourists... More

This visit was a intended to fill an afternoon after a previous day of playing hard. We had a very pleasant time snorkeling. I cut my hand during that event and just happened to walk by two of the island's assistants who insisted on cleaning and bandaging it. Very beautiful and well worth the visit.

tinny island west of Saipan, reached by 10 minutes of boat. great destination for a day trip to snorkel and eat coconuts. VERY crowded, specially by loud chinese tourists, so, on arrival, immediately go to the other side of the island (5 min walk) where there will be noone.
