With a population of around 45,000, Dededo is Guam’s most populous town – the capital, Hagåtña, has 1,100 inhabitants. Dededo is in the northern part of the island, within easy distance of the coast. Once a sleepy farming community, it’s now an important commercial and residential centre with plenty of attractions close to hand.

If you like to shop, head to Micronesia Mall – the largest on the island. For a taste of local flavour, hit up the Guam Farmers Market, where you’ll find stalls selling fresh produce, handicrafts and delicious barbecue. You’ll find plenty of coffee shops, restaurants and hotels for a comfortable stay here.

A string of beaches runs along the outskirts of the town. One of them is Mushroom Rock Hilaan Beach, named after the mushroom-shaped limestone formations in the bay. It’s a quiet, picturesque beach that’s great for swimming. Another nearby beach is located at Ritidian Point, a national wildlife refuge.
