A trek to Forbidden Island is a must if you’re going to visit Saipan, and is a perfect day hike. Park your car at the trail head in the village of Kagman and hike down the steep trail until you emerge from the trees for a spectacular view of Forbidden Island and the crashing waves. Once you make it all the way down the trail and reach the island, there are several tide pools that are perfect for snorkling or just cooling down in the water. If you are feeling more adventurous, you can find “Hidden Forbidden,” a small cave with its own secluded tide pool. Be careful of the strong currents when enjoying the water and bring athletic shoes for climbing over rocks on your way down.
