Welcome to Tinian


Home of the annual Tika festival, Tinian is a neighboring island of Saipan easily accessible through a short hop on a plane. Stretches of secluded beaches await your footsteps. The crystal water, colorful marine life, and pristine coral reefs surrounding the island offer excellent snorkeling, scuba diving, and fishing.

Explore Tinian’s rich historic sites. See pre-historic remains of ancient indigenous Chamorro culture, including the ruins of the House of Taga. World War II relics abound, including the Atomic Bomb Pits and administrative buildings. During WWII Tinian had the busiest airport in the world, and you can still drive those extensive runways today that played a pivotal role in the dramatic war.
