Looking to spend a relaxing overnight stay at one of Guam’s most cherished beaches. Whether you’re with a group of friends or looking for some personal time, Tarague Beach on Andersen Air Force Base is your answer to camping on Guam.

Make the most of the day at the beach enjoying activities such as swimming, snorkeling, beach volleyball or barbeque. The beach also provides a playground for kids, a nature trail for hiking and exploring the different historical highlights and agriculture in the area.

Tarague Beach offers 30 campsites along the sandy beach. Most of the campsites are shaded by beautiful pine trees and the ocean breeze keeps you cool. Each campsite includes a picnic table and grill.  Bathrooms and showers are centrally located so all patrons can use them conveniently.

You also have the option to enjoy dinner or cold refreshments at Bamboo Willies beachfront restaurant. As the evening approaches, catch a breathtaking sunset, roast marshmallows or make smores.

Camping at Tarague is open all year round. However, December through February usually offers the best weather conditions: slightly cooler with a little less rain and humidity. This makes for perfect camping.

Stay the weekend or just one night.  Reservations can be made through 36th Services Outdoor Recreation located in Building 1605 on Andersen Air Force Base.

If you don’t own any camping equipment, Outdoor Recreation has all your supplies such as tents and other camping equipment for rent. Reservations for campsites as well as supplies can be made online at <> under Outdoor Recreation or by calling 366-5204.
