Two Lover’s Point in Tamuning, Guam is a neat tourist attraction that offers some stunning views as well as the story of the local legend. There is also a cute little gift shop that has some great items, it’s worth a visit! Recently a restaurant has opened there and you can eat while taking in the amazing views. Military discounts are offered for the viewing area and in the gift shop.
There is a decent sized parking area, we went on a Friday during the day and it wasn’t crowded. We went back on a Saturday afternoon and while there were more cars there we were able to find a spot. The attraction itself was not crowded though.
There is a Two Lover’s sign spelled out in rocks, seems to be a popular place for people to take selfies.
You can walk around and see the huge statue that looms over the entrance area.
Also in this area are a few vendors that offer goods for sale. One was selling shirts and knickknacks and the other was selling smoothies and drinks. Bring cash for these vendors.
While you can walk around the area for free you do have to pay to enter the viewing platform. Walking around you can see the statue, love locks, and part of the view. You can also read the story of the legend near the entrance area. It’s a Chamorro tale Romeo & Juliet style where two lovers were forbidden to be together so they chose to jump to their deaths together instead. A romantic tragedy at this scenic spot where the cliffs meet the Philippine Sea.
They sell locks in the gift shop near the entrance if you want to purchase one.
The viewing platform is $3 per persons, however with a military ID it’s only $2 per person. Once through the turnstiles you can visit both the viewing platforms. There is a telescope on one for an even closer view of the further areas.
The views are amazing although can be a bit scary for those who are not a fan of heights. Mr. B wasn’t a fan of standing close to the rail and looking over. I seen a few others who did not enjoy it as well.
The gift shop is to the right of the vendors and you’ll also find the restrooms there as well. I was expecting all the typical gift store stuff that you see all over but I was pleasantly surprised here! They have several items from local artists for sell as well as a great range of items. They even have 3 different children’s books that are stories of local legends, one being the Two Lover’s Point legend. These were $12 each. This store is worth checking out if your looking for gifts for family as well. I seen a few of the things they sell at the gift store inside the BX but they were cheaper here and you get a 10% discount.
Terreza is the restaurant that just opened in September. While it has a limited menu we found that the food was great, the burgers are huge! It wasn’t crowded at all on a Saturday afternoon and we got to chose our table so we chose one that looked over the ocean & viewing platform area. The breeze was perfect as it lightly blew through keeping us cool. The service was fantastic, I’d go back just for that alone!
Overall we had a great visit and its certainly a place we’ll be taking family when they are visiting us here in Guam. I’ll be visiting the gift shop to stock up on some gifts as well.
