Forbidden Island, Saipan

4.5
#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.
