DIVING

Like its neighbor, Truk, Guam’s reefs and lagoons are littered with wrecks of ships and planes from World War II. For a unique dive that should appeal to the history lover as well as military buff, swim down to Twin Wrecks: the Tokai Maru, a large Japanese freighter torpedoed in WWII that went down in Apra Harbor – virtually on top of the SMS Cormoran, a German cruiser sunk in First World War.

GOLF

Panoramic ocean views are a defining feature of most Guam courses, including the popular Country Club of the Pacific at Yona. But the incoming holes (No. 9 through 18) at Manilao Golf Club are in a class by themselves, winding along the low-lying coastline a-la-Pebble Beach. Save your beat-up balls for the signature 12th hole, a par-3 over the surf to a green on a small rocky outcrop.

CULTURE

The setting (a modern recreation of an old Spanish market) may be a cultural stretch, but the Chamorro Village in Hagatna (previously called Agana) is a good place to sample the local traditions. You can sample authentic Chamorro food, buy fresh produce from local farmers and crafts (basket weavings are a standby), and get a taste of the culture that just may whet your appetite for the many community fiestas that highlight the Guam calendar.
