You're Going to Love Tamuning

Guam's tourist jewel, Tamuning nestles along the shore of Tumon Bay, offering shallow warm waters, pure sands, and a vibrant community of shopping malls and family attractions. And being so close to Guam's international airport, it's probably the most convenient Pacific Island resort to visit for a short tropical break.

But there's more than a beach and international chain stores to discover in Tamuning. The island of Guam has plenty to unfold, whether it's the good-time atmosphere at Chamorro barbecues, which last well into the night, snorkeling at sunken coral villages, clambering over colonial-era forts, or touring World War Two sites.

With the dollar as its currency, traveling to the island is handy for American visitors, and the large US military presence has brought Chamorro and American cultures together - resulting in a superb Pacific destination.

How to Get Around Tamuning

The Cost of Living in Tamuning


Guam Premier Outlets is home to global brands like Calvin Klein, Skechers, Levi's, Forever 21, and Hilfiger, and is a great place for fashion fans to explore. However, the Chamorro Village Market is probably more fun. Combining traditional Chamorro BBQ stalls, live music, and craft stalls, it's the area's liveliest shopping destination. But if down-to-earth bargain hunting is your thing, make a beeline for Dededo Flea Market on Marine Drive - you can find anything there.

Supermarkets and Food Stores

ABC Stores and Payless Markets are the major local supermarkets and are reliable places to stock up on American products and essentials like sunblock, sunglasses, or baseball caps. Prices are usually slightly higher than in the USA, with a gallon of milk coming to $11 and 12 eggs costing about $3.80.

Where to Eat in Tamuning

From flavorsome "red rice" to citrus-inflected kelaguen dishes and hearty barbecues, Guam's cuisine is both familiar and unique at once. Seafood and meat BBQ joints are common, and with Core BBQ Garden & Bar and Avenue Steak & Lobster, Tamuning hosts a couple of gems. Meskla Dos is one of the best Chamorro eateries around, while Table 35 offers global cuisine (miso-rubbed steaks are a specialty) and an extensive wine list. Prices vary, but a good meal can be had for $20-30 per head.
