Forbidden Island, Saipan

4.6
#5 of 6 in Nature in Northern Mariana Islands
A craggy outcrop jutting out from the island's coastline, Forbidden Island remains one of Saipan's wildest attractions. You'll need a decent off-road vehicle to access the trail leading to the rock formation. The trail itself is a short but somewhat tricky hike down. Make sure you wear sturdy footwear for the steep walk and bring plenty of food and drinks. The water around the rock makes for excellent snorkeling, although the current can be quite strong.

  • Second place after grotto where you need to visit during your stay on Saipan. However, now there sometimes meets a lot of tourists. Still a very beautiful and picturesque place. There is a natural pool where in good weather you can swim with a snorkel, a lot of small fish. If you step aside a little then you can see a deep natural cave with a bath of water inside. Very beautiful surf. We need sneakers. In sneakers will not be comfortable. Unique photos. Recommend.
