  • If you visit Fort Neustra Senora de la Soledad, you can see beautiful and colorful sea. You can also see Umatac Villige from there.  more »
  • Interesting stop off point for a quick history lesson of Guam and photo taking as its elevated above sea level. Not as populated as Lover's point and no charges either. worth the stop if you intend...  more »
  • This overlooks a beautiful bay. The cannons are not authentic, but there are remnants of the old fort. It is worth visiting, though you will not need to spend a lot of time there.  more »

  • Great views and location. Make sure you stop and take pictures at the big bridge structure (looks like a fort) before the road goes uphill. When I visit the restrooms were locked also lots of local panhandlers.
  • Super quick spot but worth doing on the drive around. Good view of the port. Interesting history of the Spanish time. There are restrooms on site. A 5 to 10 minute visit unless you want to sit and watch the sea.
  • Best place in Guam! Pretty small but peaceful and beautiful.
  • Easily one of the best scenic spots in Guam. Been here twice in two days - guess that indicates how much I liked this place?
  • There are fantastic views from here, but there isn't much to the fort. Seems more like it was a small artillery battery than anything else. There's reproduction canons but not much else. But do come and visit for the views, especially the village below and across the bay!
