According to topmbadirectory, Tumon is the central and in fact the only major tourist center on the island of Guam, the largest of the Mariana Islands archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. It is located in the Tumon Bay of the same name, north of the capital of Guam, the city of Hagatna, and is washed by the Philippine Sea.
“Tourists with experience” note that Tumon is very similar to the Hawaiian Waikiki with a bunch of restaurants, shops and all kinds of entertainment venues.
In fact, Tumon itself is a large tourist coastal zone, where numerous clubs, restaurants, duty-free shops and other tourist infrastructure are located behind the line of hotels.
How to get there
Not so long ago, Orenburg Airlines launched direct weekly charters to Guam from Khabarovsk and Vladivostok, as well as once every two weeks from Blagoveshchensk, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. From other cities in Russia, the most convenient option is to fly with Korean Air with a connection in Seoul or with Japan Airlines and Continental aircraft with a connection in Tokyo.
From Guam International Airport, the most convenient way to get there is by bus (approximately 2 USD per trip). The cost of a taxi ride is USD 3 for the first mile, and USD 0.6 for every 0.25 miles beyond that.
Weather in Tumon
According to ejiaxing, Guam has a topical monsoon climate – the air temperature is + 26-27 ° C all year round. The most favorable time for tourism is from December to May, from May to November the rainy season continues here with a high risk of formation of destructive Pacific typhoons.
The highlight of Tumon is a chic kilometer-long beach with white sand, bordered by a coral reef. Thanks to this natural barrier, the beach is protected from high ocean waves. The shallow turquoise lagoon formed by the reef with warm, clear and calm water attracts many tourists – world-class hotels rise here, including the Marriott, Hyatt, Sheraton and other chains.
The Tumon Bay beach itself is famous for its unique composition and appearance of sand. Not only is it amazingly white, clean and extraordinarily soft, tiny orange grains with star-shaped dots are visible in every grain of sand. These are interspersed with fossilized shells of tiny protozoa living on the reefs of Guam and today, in calcium carbonate crystals. For its exotic appearance, such sand was called “Star sand” or “Star sand”.
