Hagatna
Travel Guide

Discover Chamorro culture in this tiny coastal town, the unlikely capital of Guam and a treasure trove of historic sites.

Despite being one of Guam’s smallest towns, Hagåtña is the island’s capital. Visit this tranquil oceanfront destination for a warm welcome and a relaxing village atmosphere. Investigate the indigenous Chamorro culture and visit early historic sites and later Spanish-influenced ones. Head to the beach to explore the warm waters and diverse marine life of the Pacific Ocean.

In Hagåtña’s Chamorro Village buy local handicrafts and sample traditional foods such as octopus in coconut milk. The village is a throwback to a point in the town’s history that predates most written records. Detailed information about Hagåtña dates from 1668 onward, when Spanish Catholic missionaries arrived. The beautiful white Dulce Nombre de Maria Agana Cathedral and Basilica, a mid 20th-century building, stands on the spot where Hagåtña’s first Catholic church was believed to have been erected in 1669.

The cathedral is next to pretty Plaza de España, a centuries-old site built by the first Spanish colonizers. Wander this scenic green space and admire its original arched gateways. Look for the round Chocolate House, where privileged Spanish enjoyed hot chocolate each afternoon., built in the early 1800s. Not much of the original structure remains. However, climb to the fort’s hilltop location for wonderful ocean views. to see impressive archaeological remains from a very different time. The large “latte stones,” distinctive pillars made from rock, pepper this area. Well over 1,000 years old, they once served as the supports for houses.to arrange fun water-based activities such as dolphin watching or Jet Skiing. Book a beginner’s scuba diving class that will let you meet some of the area’s colorful marine life.

Come to Hagåtña at any time of year to enjoy high temperatures. Some stormy days are likely during October and November. Fly into Antonio B. Won Pat Guam International Airport, located about a 15-minute drive from the island’s charming capital.
