For a lot of us, the weekends and holidays can get pretty boring if there is nothing to do at home. That is why we have compiled a brand new list of fun activities that you, your family, and your friends can engage in!
Behold, 8 more awesome activities on Guam!
Mini Golf is an activity that is fun for all ages! If you’re up for it, visit Island Mini Golf Adventure in Tumon where you can challenge your friends and family to 18 holes of pure fun. They’re open on Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. See them on Facebook for more information!
Dive beneath the waves without getting into any diving gear with Atlantis Submarines! Taking off from Apra Harbor, you’ll travel 15 minutes by boat to where you’ll be boarding the submersible. From there you’ll dive down 45 meters into the depths off Gab Gab and witness wondrous sea creatures all around you, and perhaps a diver or two! Whether you’re just visiting or you live here, it’s something you do not want to miss out on!
