Obyan Beach, Obyan

4.6
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Northern Mariana Islands
A secluded stretch of coastline on the island's southern tip, Obyan Beach offers a blend of history and classic fun-in-the-sun. You'll spot a World War II bunker from the parking lot, and if you delve a little farther into the grove of coconut trees, you'll find several latte stones built by indigenous Chamorro people and dating as far back as 1500 BCE. Bring your snorkeling gear to make the most of the beach's clear waters. By using our Saipan trip maker tool , you can arrange your visit to Obyan Beach and other attractions in Saipan.

  • Great for picnic, swimming, snorkeling, and strolling on the beach. Beach has lots of shade to take a nap. Parking is ample.  more »
  • Obian Beach is famous for its diving. From the beach, I met a group of divers who lined up and walked. It is a place where you can see tinian island in the distance. If you're back in Saipan, this is the second place you'll want to play with your snorkeling gear (number one is Managaha Island), so it's a good idea to take a dip in the water and slap in the shade of a palm tree right next to the beach.

  • Very beautiful but very dirty. Lots of trash.
  • Cool beach, hard to get to. Dirt road behind the airport. Strong current, make sure you go at high tide if you're snorkeling, otherwise the rocks are to close.
