Saipan, as the capitol, is the largest and most populated island in The Marianas.

This tropical paradise offers beautiful white sand beaches with crystal clear water and pure, fresh air. Warmth is in the air and in the people you will meet. It is a throwback to a relaxed lifestyle coupled with modern hotels, incredible sights, adventurous activities and shopping. Garapan is the epicenter of activities with many restaurants, bars, and shopping options.

A magical destination.

Saipan is located about 120 miles (190 km) north of Guam and 5 nautical miles (9.3 km) northeast of Tinian, from which it’s separated by the Saipan Channel. Saipan is about 12 miles long and 5.5 miles wide. It’s the principal island and major commercial center of the archipelago.

The Chamorro and Carolinan are the indigenous people of these islands. With a friendly spirit, locals are warm and welcoming.

Immerse yourself.

Throughout the year, a variety of festivals celebrate Chamorro, Carolinian and international cultural traditions in song, dance, crafts and food. There’s no better place to start than the weekly Garapan Street Market in the heart of the main tourist district of Saipan.

Lively markets are famous for delicious traditional foods while showcasing local arts and crafts. Be sure to visit during the annual Flame Tree Arts Festival, where the traditional Carolinian Stick Dance is just one of the many exciting performances to see.

Garapan, the epicenter of activities.

Alongside all of Saipan’s amazing history and prehistory going back 4000 years resides a fringe of new, modern resort hotels, restaurants and shopping venues worthy of a spot on 5th Avenue. Considered the downtown district, Garapan is where most of the restaurants, bars, and shopping centers are located.

Saipan has nearly 4,000 years of history.

The island’s turquoise lagoon hides wrecks and remnants of the Pacific War and is a snorkeler’s and scuba diver’s paradise found. Towering cliffs and a pristine jungle lures hikers with caves still filled with the detritus of a war now remembered by ceremonies held at inspiring peace memorials built by many nations.
