Tagachang Beach

Tagachang Beach

Set between jungle-topped cliffs, Tagachang beach is one of Guam’s many beautiful beaches, but unlike some, this one is remote and ungroomed.

Located on the southeast side of the island, it is off the usual tourist routes. There are no buses to this beach, so a car or taxi is required. Unlike Tumon Bay beaches, Tagachang is quiet, but best enjoyed during daylight hours for safety. Like many of the eastern beaches, an outer reef breaks the surf and makes the beach calm and safe for swimming. 

Because of its uncrowded location and shallow waters, Tagachang Beach is ideal for children, those who do not swim well or anyone looking to relax. While the outer reef makes the beach calm and safe, but beyond or on the reef can be treacherous for even the most advanced swimmers so always stay near the beach. 

This hidden jewel is found on the North end of Yona village off Route 4. If you're coming from the south end of the island, pass the Yona Mobile gas station, and take the right turn all the way down a jungle-lined road. From the north end of the island, take Route 4 into Yona, pass Pago Bay Resort, and as you pass the Pago Bay lookout, prepare to turn at the first road on the left and follow it all the way down to the beach.

Tagachang's serene and remote charm offers a unique experience from the usual tourist spots. So pack your essentials, hope in the car, and get ready to discover one of Guam's best-kept secrets.
