Besides Agat Bay and Apra Harbor, which we have treated as separate dive sections, there are many more interesting spots to be visited in Guam. Just south of Agat Bay is Sella Bay, a very popular place to swim, snorkel and dive with many curious spinner dolphins. Umatac, even more south, has been the major village of Guam during its Spanish occupation with remains of forts such as Fort Santo Angel and Fort Nuestra Senora de la Soledad, which were used for protecting the huge Spanish Galleon fleet. Cocos Island is surrounded with white beaches and the shallow Cocos Lagoon is a haven for juvenile marine life. The southeast side, near Inarajan, is not often dived and a heavy target for winds especially during the typhoon seasons.
North of Apra Harbor, in between Piti and Asan, is the very popular Piti Bomb Holes dive site. It is a popular sinkhole which can also be visited by non-diving tourists through its excellent underwater observatory. The capital Agana or Hagatna is where most tourists will start their journey of Guam. Agana is a great and relaxed place to walk around, with some excellent parks, some historic cathedrals, basilicas and very nice plazas and Spanish architecture. Tumon Bay is as good as Agana Bay, with resorts, dive shops, restaurants, bars and other entertainment that suits tourism. It gets more remote all the way up to Ritidian Point with brilliant cliffs and many sloping reefs and drop-offs. The north is subject to the trade winds and not often dived in the typhoon season.
