the Japanese 200mm cannon sits rusting in a cave overlooking the beach. be careful to not hurt yourself on the rusting cannon. there is a short walk to get to other beachside bunkers. it is tough to imagine the horrendous fighting that occured there in july 1944. that 200mm cannon must have delivered murderous fire against the US forces attempting to land at that location. the outcome of course, was not in question. locals dont know about this gun. just go to the beach, and turn right at the water, and keep walking. you will find it. again, be careful to not cut yourself on the rusting gun. and take a moment to remember all the soldiers from both sides who died there and at other Guam locations during WWII.

Awesome beach with stunning sunsets. Highly recommended visiting this beach. Also, the beach bar is a great spot to grab a bite and a beverage!

This beach is beautiful. Very quiet and perfect if you want to experience some waves, unlike Tumon Bay next door. I wish the bridge to FaiFai Beach was repaired, but it's easy enough to wade to the next beach.

I give this 5 stars but one thing EVERYONE needs to know is to NOT sit on the concrete pad the gun is on. I did and got the most horrible, excruciating stinging and itching on my legs. I guess since they mix ground coral with the cement to make the concrete the coral there are now parasites' being released and there was no peroxide at Kmart so had to make a soda paste to neutralize and took a couple of Benidryl and fine the next morning.
Cool to see the Japanize gun and to imagine the battle at this beach. Beautiful beach and very interesting to see cool water coming out of the ground and feeding the ocean.

We went diving here several times and really enjoyed it. Easy access to the beach from the parking lot, just follow the twin pipes out until it gets deep enough to descend. There is some boat traffic so make sure to tie off a dive marker on the pipes once you reach 5 meters depth. You can follow the slope either right or left shoulder, I liked it better on the right. Clear blue water and quite a few turtles. Apparently people sometimes see mantas but we didn't. The slope is gradual, for the most part we stayed above 20 meters but you can go quite deep - I was surprised to see two turtles at about 30 meters.

Nice smaller beach with fantastic clean white sand. Can go swimming and snorkeling but be careful if the surf is high. Named after old WW2 Japanese gun mounted at the beach, take the short trail over to part of the beach on the other side of the big rock outcropping. After beach time, visit the Beach Bar right behind the beach, good food and cold beer.

Came across Gun beach when driving at the end of the northerly part of the main tourist district. The main car park has warning signs stating that you must patronise the beach bar/restaurant to be able to park. There where around 15 cars parked but i saw no patrons in the beach bar/restaurant. Beach was more quite than the larger more populated beaches in Tumon to the south. A quieter alternative for those wanting more privacy.

Gun Beach was a secluded quiet spot until a few years ago. A restaurant, bar and theatre spoiled it all, however, there is still some beach adventure to be had.
After you see the "Gun", keep walking along the narrow path above and around to the other side and you will be rewarded by a quiet spot and a great place to take photos

This is a cool spot located near The Beach Bar. It's worth taking a look if you are over that way. It's an easy walk on a path through the rocks and jungle. Bring a camera and some water.

Lovely beach, but don’t plan a leisurely walk in the water or to play. Bottom is very rocky (coral, I guess). Very hard on the feet. We read that it was good for snorkeling, but I can’t imagine how - too shallow.
