HikingGreat!

Awesome trail. Good for families. Down is easy, up is moderate for young ones and other non avid hikers, but totally doable. 2 small streams your cross without difficulty. Feet will get wet. Water shoes and snorkel gear is good to have at the beach. Bug spray great to have through muddy part which is just a short stent. Cool palm tree jutting out is to the left past the big rock in the water. Snorkeling just out side the surf is awesome down towards Cetti - lots of cool crevices and fish. Bring camel back with lots of water and some snacks. Was nice to have a machete to cut open fresh coconuts and enjoy some coconut water and the coconut itself! Plan on 5 hours to enjoy the beach, coconuts, snorkel, snack, water breaks and photo ops along the way. Really enjoyable!

This trail has slick mud every time I hike it, but it is always worth it!

Very overgrown in some spots. I was lucky and it hadn’t rained that day. But it was still fairly slippery in some spots. The trail is very well marked at the beginning once you start hitting the mud the markers become more scarce. I was able to get through it without getting too muddy. Not the best trail in Guam. Bring lots of water because it will get hot under the canopy

Very muddy in some spots during rainy season. IF YOU WANT TO GO TO THE COOL COCONUT TREE, take a left when you get to the bridge.

The trail was well marked. However, it was pretty slick in some spots. The trail itself was gorgeous, but the beach was kind of a disappointment. Overall, it wasn’t a bad hike.

HikingGreat!

Parts are uncovered; not too much overgrown. A little slippery in spots with some creeks that you can’t help but get your feet wet. It’s got a nice rock formation and cool tree at the beach front. Bring beach/rock shoes, sunscreen, mosquito spray, and a lot of water.

This was our first time hiking this trail and we were pleasantly surprised in how well marked everything was. The parking area was marked as the trailhead and had 5 spots, 2 in the shade under trees and 3 in the sun. The trail begins as a broken paved surface to an overlook with some benches. From there it becomes a dirt trail with many different forks. Fortunately, there is plenty of pink trail tape marking the way. Depending on the rain the tail can be a bit muddy so it's best to go when it's been dry for a day. There were two stream crossings along the way. The first was a bit tricky and wide with the recent rainfall but it was passable without putting a foot in the water. The second was much less of an issue and was easily traversed. There was tree coverings at the top and the bottom of the trail that provided shade from the sun but had lots of mosquitoes so you'll want to not stay in those areas for long. At the very bottom of the trail is the Spanish bridge. It's actually part of the trail in that you walk across the top of the bridge in order to cross the river to get to the final beach area. Pictures here are a must!

Moderate difficulty. Once you get to Sella Bay walk about a mile or so south to Cetti Bay.

No shade

This trail does not offer a lot of shade for the majority of the hike. I could imagine it being very muddy if you go after a rain, so I would suggest going when it is dry and early enough to beat the heat. We also brought our two dogs and they loved it. Super easy hike down, there's no steep spots but it is a downhill hike. If I could tell you 3 things it would be: 1. Bring enough water. This hike is 5 ish miles. 2. Wear bug spray and sun screen (obviously). 3. Look at a map and learn about the history before going! there's lots of hidden gems here

HikingMuddyNo shade

This trail gets muddy especially after it rains but if you have trekking poles or are willing to slide a bit you’ll be fine. The first portion of the hike doesn’t offer much shade but when you descend into jungle and see the beach, it’s well worth the hike. If you go off to the left of the beach there is a good snorkeling area.

Wasn’t able to finish this trail due to slippery conditions and fire ants. Will try again but not bringing my dog.

Trail was in good condition and we only saw a few other people the whole day. Some mud when you first entered the jungle portion near the bottom but the path itself was pretty dry. The trail was clearly marked with pink trail tape so no guesswork was needed. Lots of mosquitoes in the shade but not anywhere else.

First to Review

A great hike to a secluded beach with a funky palm tree, an old Spanish bridge (that’s part of the trail!!!) and a cool looking rock.
