There are pros and cons to Tumon Beach, Guam's number-one tourist draw. On the plus side, it's a beautiful, long white coral-sand beach with calm turquoise waters. You can snorkel over coral reefs and enjoy any watersport you can think of. There are great distractions for kids, in particular Underwater World which, at 300 feet long, claims to have the longest walk-through tunnel aquarium in the world. On the down side, behind the beach there are numerous towering resort
hotels—although there's a good chance you'll end up staying in one of these—meaning this is no get-away-from-it-all island experience. Solitude is one thing you won't find. Guam sees more than a million visitors every year, and most of them end up here. It can get very crowded at peak times.
