Gab Gab beach is a lovely place to snorkel. It’s on the Navy Base, and it’s a hard coral reef with lots of beautiful fish and turtles.
At first I couldn’t figure out why everyone said it was good. I was trying to snorkel from the beach wading out.
However, if you go around to the pool and take the stairs, you can go out past the reef. That’s where the real excitement is.
It is always dangerous to go past the reef, so make sure that there aren’t high winds. Those will cause currents, and that can be a problem.
However, when it is safe and the water is calm, it’s a wonderful place to go.
I had never been snorkeling until I came to Guam.
It’s a steep learning curve trying to study all the names of the fish.
After all, in Arizona there isn’t much call to learn fish names.
However, it’s really a beautiful place to check out, even if you can’t name the fish afterwards.
