MUST VISIT.

This is the cleanest and most visited island of the cnmi. Locals and toursists alike are amazed of the underwater treasures and sealife you can find. The sunsets and sunrises as well as the night view of the stars and lights of saipan will make you want to come back for more.

Highly recommend a visit. Its a beautiful island with white sand beach and crystal clear water. Full of Asians and although the Chinese can get annoying (loud, untidy and have no concept of rspecting nature and maintaing its beauty) the Koreans and Japanese are generally polite, clean and follow the conservation ethos/rules of the island. The snorkling is OK but... More

The water. The sand. The sun. A bit crowded but an incredible place to visit while in Saipan. Bring sunblock and water!

Its supposed to be famous for snorkeling but in my opinion the waters were murky and darker, rather than the clearer see-through waters. The water is not that deep so when you swim, the whole time you feel like youre gonna scrape your thighs on the coral or when walking, step on sea cucumbers. Swarming with Chinese and Korean tourists... More

This visit was a intended to fill an afternoon after a previous day of playing hard. We had a very pleasant time snorkeling. I cut my hand during that event and just happened to walk by two of the island's assistants who insisted on cleaning and bandaging it. Very beautiful and well worth the visit.

tinny island west of Saipan, reached by 10 minutes of boat. great destination for a day trip to snorkel and eat coconuts. VERY crowded, specially by loud chinese tourists, so, on arrival, immediately go to the other side of the island (5 min walk) where there will be noone.

Managaha Island is breathtakingly beautiful. It may sound silly but it reminded me of Gilligan's Island because it feels remote and secluded. Although one area of Managaha is congested with people and commercial amenities such as rentals and banana boat rides, the rest of the tiny island is quiet and secluded. There are covered (shaded) picnic areas available and like... More

It was a sunny day, we did banana boat, parachute and diving too, lying on the beach, finding a place away from other people on the beach, watching nice pretty blue water, really great! It's true that there were too many tourists but it's still like a paradise beach!

A must do in Saipan. Paradise on heaven. I chose to spend my day away from the crowds, since the area around the restaurants gets very crowded. By walking just a little, it seemed that I owned a private beach.
