One of the, if not the most, beautiful and famous sites in Guam is the Puntan Dos Amantes otherwise known as the TWO LOVER’S POINT. It is located in Northern Guam at a cliff area overlooking Tumon Bay.
Legend says that there was once two lovers who chose to be forever in death rather than be apart in life.
It all started when Spain governed over Guam. There was a very wealthy Spanish man who was married to the daughter of a Chamorro chieftain. They had a daughter who was said to be honest, modest and beautiful.
One day, the girl’s father decided to have her marry a Spanish captain. When she discovered this, she ran all the way to the northern part of Guam where she found a hidden and peaceful shore. It was there that she met and fell in love with a young Chamorro warrior. He was said to be muscular and had eyes that “search meaning in the stars”
Trapped, the two lovers could do nothing but to stare at each other’s eyes and kiss. They then tied their long hair together and jumped down the cliff. The girl’s father and his soldiers could only watch in despair.
The story and the place itself was truly magical. The entrance to the top costs about 3USD. But it’s definitely worth it. The view is absolutely breathtaking.
If ever you go to Guam, be sure to visit this place. You will not regret it!
