Managaha: An island getaway
Any visit or stay on Saipan is never complete if you have not stepped foot on this small, flat coral islet that is one of Saipan’s main tourist attractions.
Managaha Island, accessible by about 20 minutes by ferry from the Lower Base, is one site that never fails to get its fair share of visitors every.
The island offers guests a glimpse of its rich historical background and World War 2 relics like two huge Japanese canons on the island.
This, in addition to the enjoyment you can get from the various activities you can engage in its pristine waters and wide stretch of white, sandy beach.
I first visited this island a week after I arrived on Saipan but I got another chance to for a quick visit every now and then. The fun starts at the boat ride to the island where you get a chance to breathe in the salty tang of ocean breeze and enjoy looking at the clear blue waters of the lagoon.
Managaha Island is a beehive of activities everyday for tourists and locals alike. This is the best spot on Saipan for snorkeling, parasailing, banana boat riding, scuba diving, kayaking, jet skiing and a lot of water activities. For those who are not that water sports fanatics, you can pitch a tent or spend a fantastic time idling away on lounge chairs under the shade of the trees swapping stories with friends, or take that much deserved nap.
Managaha Island is your island dedicated for fun, an ideal place to get away from it all, to relax or spend a day off without creating a dent in your budget.
Despite the flurry of daily activities, Managaha Island gives off the impression of being untouched and natural. A whole day spent in Managaha Island can make a huge difference to revive and renew your spirits before you go back to the daily routine of work. Try it if you haven’t done so and enjoy one day in your life with memories you will cherish for a long time.
