Inarajan Pools are a great way to spend a day in Guam enjoying the natural beauty and water fun! One of the best features about Inarajan Pools is that they are protected from the waves by natural coral barriers and offer a safe place to swim & snorkel!
It’s also located on the South end of the island which has some amazing scenery for the drive! We also like to eat at McKrauts (the German restaurant out that way) and there is also Jeff’s Pirate Cove as well.
And if you keep driving past Inarajan Pools to the left there will be a pull off area and you can see Bear Rock.
There are some remains of steps that lead up to a neat overlook area. However there are no longer stairs there.
You can get up and down by climbing on the wall to the left, although it’s a bit intense, LOL! Shoes are recommended! A friend & I did it in flip flops so it’s doable but shoes would be better. I’ve also seen some people bring a ladder and use that. Either way works.
It’s also a bit of a climb to get over to the stairs as well, as you can see above.
Once on top you have a great overlook view of the area, and if you walk towards the ocean side there is a bench there. View from the top, towards the pools
View from the top, facing the ocean.
The water is clear so even if you don’t want to swim you can hang out and watch the fish.
There are several covered picnic areas set up where you can hang out and have lunch. When we went a family had bought a charcoal grill and the food smelled amazing!
There are also public restrooms to the left of the parking lot if facing the pools and a small store across the street.
