Hafa Adai! Welcome to the village of Agat
Agat, Guam is quietly tucked away in the southern part of the island. This quiet village is known for its amazing coastline and history. Many who call home in the village live a much eased life after the days work, away from all the hustle and bustle. Its shores are embellished with Guam’s beauty; the palm trees, its marine life, and parks are surely an eye catcher. Its sunsets are unlike anything you have witnessed before.
Agat Guam is seven minutes away from the Naval Base in Santa Rita. To get to the US Naval Hospital in Agana will only take you eighteen minutes. Route 2 runs right along the coastal side of the village so there is hardly any traffic in the village. There are a few elementary schools and middle schools, both private and public, which are located in the village. Public school bus transportation is available. Unfortunately, there are no bus stops in Agat for children who will be attending DoDea.
Agat Guam is filled with nature. Its waters are rich with marine life. The Agat Small Boat Marina is a facility for docking small boats. Many of the boats are chart boats that take you out onto Hap’s Reef. Hap’s Reef is famous for spotting pilot whales. Many divers and snorkelers travel to Agat’s beaches because of its abundance in marine life. Fishermen can be seen from standing on the side of the roads selling live octopus and fishes.
We recommend you check out its beaches. There are a few parks located on the side of its beaches. Some of them have pavilions, a large field, BBQ pits, outdoor showers, and shade—all suitable for a day at the beach for you and your family. Every May, the village hosts its annual Mango Festival, started in 2007; the festival includes canoe paddling race, displays, vendor booths, mango culinary competitions, entertainments, and more. The festival is much family friendly.
Agat Guam is the island living. There is plenty to see or do, and if you run out of things, just sit back and enjoy the island breeze. Watch the sunset on the horizon; it’s an experience unlike any other. Go fishing in its waters, the fishes are always hungry in the village. We hope to see you at the next Mango Festival!
