With scuba diving sites, brightly colored corals, lagoons, caves and mountains, Saipan offers a rich outdoor lifestyle. Dive to see tropical fish, hike through acres of jungle or simply relax on the beaches.
Saipan is the largest of the Northern Mariana Islands. The western Pacific Ocean archipelago is part of the United States Commonwealth and lies south of Japan and east of the Philippines.
Garapan is the island’s largest town, the hub of Saipan’s tourist industry with hotels, restaurants, shopping centers and stores. Pick up maps and tourist information and get your bearings.
Most visitors come to Saipan for its beaches, particularly those on the island’s western side. An offshore coral reef has created a large lagoon with numerous sandy coves. Micro Beach is one of the most visited. Steady winds and calm waves attract windsurfers; plan to give this sport a try. Treat yourself to a picnic or barbecue using the beach’s pavilions.
Divers love Saipan. The island’s handful of scuba diving operators serve all experience levels. Explore the rich marine flora, reefs and shipwrecks.
Go to the Blue Grotto, a large underwater limestone cavern on the island’s northern side. This dive site is worth a visit even for non-divers, just to see the dark blue water and rock formations. Swim or snorkel if you aren’t diving.
Saipan was the location of a fierce and decisive battle between U.S. forces and Japanese soldiers during World War II. Visit the Last Command Post and see the bunker and its cannons. Look for tanks half-way submerged in the sea.
To explore some of the island’s jungle, take the Laderan Tangke Trail, a 2-mile (3.2-kilometer) loop through the Marpi Commonwealth Forest. Along the way you may see such birds as rufous fantails and nightingale reed warblers.
Most of Saipan’s resorts and hotels provide tours to various sites. You can also reach the island’s beaches, jungle and historic sites by renting a car or scooter or taking a taxi.
Going on a break is about so much more than just visiting a different place. It's all about the things you can do while you're there.

It’s always a good experience to stay at the Hyatt Saipan. My family loves it and we hope to spend one of our family celebrations there again.
Received a complimentary room upgrade upon check in, the hotel staff was friendly and very accommodating, the pool was huge and the swim up bar made it that much better, and the overall hotel was very quiet. Very peaceful and safe. The best loco mocos over ever eaten!
일단 뷰는 너무 좋고 방도 굉장히 넓었어요. 사장님도 너무너무 친절하시구요 근데 머스탱같은 차 렌트하면 들어가기가 조금 힘듭니다 비포장도로에 길도 험하고 좁아요. suv 추천드려여 그리고 중국인 사장님이 운영하시는건지 중국분들이 많았네요 다른건 정말 좋았어요 방음이 잘 안되나 싶었는데 아쿠아리조트도 방음은 약하더라구요 수압도 세고 좋은데 가라판이랑은 멉니다~
This is a great spot for business travelers. For tourists, there is no pool, but hey, the ocean is right there over at the restaurant. You need a car to get around from this location as it is not in the heart of the tourist district. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The only downside was the staff ...
Overall its a Great place overall. Very well maintained hotel. ClThe staff were great and very welcoming.
