Information & Flights
Part of the Northern Mariana Islands, Saipan is an oft-overlooked gem in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The tiny island is relatively untouched, aside from a permanent US Military base and a handful of small villages. An important battle site during World War II, Saipan is still home to several historic landmarks, such as Japanese bunkers and memorials. And despite a strong American and Japanese presence, the indigenous Chamorros culture is still alive and well.

Hit the Beach
The majority of the island’s beaches feature soft white sand and aquamarine water, but do be mindful of the tides.
Learn to Scuba
Saipan is a beautiful place to learn to scuba dive — the crystal-clear water and tropical fish will not disappoint. Don’t miss the Grotto, a famous cave that promises an incredible adventure. If you don’t have your scuba certification, snorkelling is another popular alternative.
Duty Free Galleria
The mega mall in Garapan draws a following for its international name brands and luxury stores. Most of the hotels run shuttles to the complex, making it a popular and convenient side trip.
A tragic yet historic site, this northern cliff is where thousands of Japanese civilians jumped to their death during the Battle of Saipan in 1944 — afraid that they’d be killed by American soldiers.
The island has a reputation for beautiful golf courses, so take a swing while you’re visiting. Three of the most famous were each designed by different international golfers: Greg Norman, Larry Nelson and Graham Marsh.
Take a Hike
The natural beauty of Saipan is best enjoyed by exploring outdoors. Popular treks include The Forbidden Island, a bird sanctuary that’s thought to be haunted; and Old Man by the Sea, a 30-foot-tall rock formation located on a secluded beach that, unsurprisingly, resembles an elderly man.
