Stripes Guam

So, you’ve tanned until your golden brown or burnt to a crisp, shopped till you dropped, and are ready to leave the manicured tourist strip of Tumon Bay and see Guam’s rugged south. Follow our itinerary for an awe-inspiring and relaxing drive around the island’s sleepy southern end.

The Latte of Freedom
More than a government house, this stop offers ocean vistas from atop the world’s largest latte — the Latte of Freedom.

I Memorias Para I Lalahi-ta
Take in sweeping views of Umatac from the hilltops.

Fort Señora Nuestra de la Soledad
Remnants of Spanish colonization remain at this oft-visited historical site. You will see canons, an eroded Japanese
bunker, and maybe even a carabao, Guam’s docile water buffalo.

Merizo Bell Tower & Merizo Combento
Built in 1910, this tower was constructed to unite the people of Merizo with organized community functions. Merizo Conbento is the oldest building on Guam, built by the Spanish to house the priest assigned to San Dimas Catholic Church. It dates to 1858.

Kathy’s Mini-Mart
Make a quick stop at Kathy’s (next to Bank of Guam in Merizo) for the island’s best pickled papaya.

Inarajan Pools
Stop for a few minutes to admire the crashing waves and bustling hermit crabs on this crater filled beach.

Talofofo Bay
One of the island’s few black sand beaches meets the Talofofo River.

Pago Bay, Yona
Before you start down the hill towards Pago Bay, take a quick right towards Del Carmen apartments for a spectacular view of the eastern coastline.
