Brews + Sites: Two Lovers Point

Both locals and tourists of Guam know and frequently visit the infamous Two Lovers Point or Puntan Dos Amantes in Chamorro. Located in the northern part of Tumon Bay, Two Lovers Point is not only Guam’s most popular tourist attraction, but an important landmark in Chamorro culture. The legend of Two Lovers Point is a Romeo and Juliet story of sorts and remains a symbol of true love even to this day – two lovers and souls connected forever in both life and death. Two Lovers Point is open daily from 7AM to 7PM and has multiple attractions to visit within the park, from the popular Heart Lock Wall to Lookout Point. No matter what attraction you visit, Two Lovers Point is sure to leave an impression on you and beautifully captures the spirit of the Chamorro people.

See an excerpt from the legend below:

When the girl’s father learned of the two lovers, he grew angry and demanded that she marry the Spanish captain at once. That day at sundown, she stole away to the same high point along the shore and once again met her Chamorro lover.
Her father, along with the captain, and all the Spanish soldiers pursued the lovers up to the high cliff above Tumon Bay. The lovers found themselves trapped between the edge of the cliff and the approaching soldiers. All the young warrior could do was warn them to stay back, and the father ordered the soldiers to halt.
