It was a sunny day, we did banana boat, parachute and diving too, lying on the beach, finding a place away from other people on the beach, watching nice pretty blue water, really great! It's true that there were too many tourists but it's still like a paradise beach!

A must do in Saipan. Paradise on heaven. I chose to spend my day away from the crowds, since the area around the restaurants gets very crowded. By walking just a little, it seemed that I owned a private beach.

I will always remember my time away from other people on the beach, watching little crabs move along the beach. We rented goggles and a snorkel to observe the tropical fish play among the corral. Relaxing and at peace, this is a must visit for all visitors to Saipan.

Nice pretty blue ocean water, practically tame tropicll fish eager to eat out of your hands. Way too many tourists. There are several much better snorleling locations, wih less, or no, tourists, elsewhere on Saipan. ( Wing beach would be 1). Lived on Saipan in 2003 but had to list 2015 to post.

This is a must see place! It is great for a day trip to another scenic area. Lovely beaches! Locals love to visit this place and have a family BBQs. Don't forget to tip some of the workers and helpers. :)

Managaha is pretty, especially from a distance, but it's too touristy in my opinion. I took a speed boat over and paid $5 to get on the island. The $5 is the "beautification" fee to keep the island clean. This seemed weird to me at first but once I saw how small the island is and all the tourists, I... More

Worth the cost of the transportation via boat. You can walk the entire island in 20 minutes or so. Rental of chairs and umbrellas aren't any more expensive than other resort areas for tourists. I think it was $30 for 2 chairs and an umbrella. We took our own snacks and drinks to save a few dollars. Great relaxing day.... More

The water was beautiful for snorkeling or swimming. The island offered some food but we went there for the water. A morning or all day was perfect.

A tiny little island, surrounded by fantastic beaches with white sand super clear water. There are few shops that offers beach wears, food. There is also an outlet to rent equipment. Pleasant place to spend a day in. Only about 10 drives from city.

The water was perfect on the day we went. As everyone says, the water is crystal clear and there are so many fish to see especially on the north end of the island. The waves are a little strong on this side but there are many more fish to see and there are less people. On the South West part... More
