The area around Obyan Beach is very pretty, but when you think of going to the beach keep an open mind. Beach is mostly dried coral and not sand. Water is very very shallow and we did not find any holes where you could cool...More

Our 5th beach trip and probably top for quantity of fish at a Saipan location (Managaha not in this equation). Plan 3 hours end to end with snorkeling. It's a BYOB kinda beach. Positives include sunny beach plus adequate shade. The Saipan Channel gets snorkeling...More

Blue water. Lots of coral. Great little right hander just over the reef. Be cautious when the tide is pulling out.

This is a beautiful beach, but takes an effort to get there. Great place to snorkel, picnic, swim, relax.
