Guam Plaza Waterpark – Tarza Waterpark: “TARZA is Guam’s most thrilling water theme park with 9 fun water attractions.  We have the only Flowrider and the longest and steepest Super Slide on Guam.  As a beginner on the Flowrider it’s not quite as easy as it looks but it’s so much fun that you’ll want to keep riding until you’re able to master riding the currents. Or, if you just want to relax and enjoy the sun you can sit in a floating ring and let the current carry you around the Lazy River.” – Tarza Waterpark

Explore the island by visiting the Inarajan Natural Pools: Not quite a beach, not quite a pool, Inarajan Pools is one of the most beautiful and unique natural features on Southern Guam. Salt water continuous. Sly washes from the ocean through a series of naturally formed pools. The landscape is breathtaking while the pools are relaxing. Small children will like splashing around the shallowest pools at low tide, while older kids will love the thrill of jumping off the old lifeguard tower. Bring a picnic and enjoy a day in the sun at this special place. Please come with a plan for your family’s trash disposal as there are limited waste receptacles on site.

5. Fish Eye Marine Park: An underwater observatory where you can see coral marine life 30ft under the sea.
