Saipan has some of the best scuba diving in the world due to the clarity of the water and the diversity of sea life. The Grotto, a collapsed underwater cave, is perhaps the most famous dive spot in Saipan, but there are dive spots for all skill levels around the island.
Because it is surrounded by water, Saipan has some amazing golf courses. Perhaps the favorite is the Lau Lau Bay Resort, which was designed by legendary course designer Greg Norman. Kingfisher also offers stunning ocean views from the back nine with infinity pools, and a breathtaking par 3 over the waves.
Saipan has excellent deep sea fishing, sport fishing and trolling year round. You can catch marlin, mahi mahi, tuna, barracuda, wahoo, and much, much more. Many of the local Japanese restaurants will also prepare your fish for you.
One of the best ways to get a view of Saipan is from the sky. Come try parasailing from the beautiful beaches of Managaha Island.
Banana Boating is good fun for the whole family. Try a banana boat ride from the shores of the beautiful Managaha Island!
Saipan is an excellent place for both windsurfing and kiteboarding. The Northern part of Garapan near the Hyatt gets a lot of wind and some of the Southern beaches such as Sugar Dock get a few fun waves.
People come from all over the world to windsurf in Saipan. The best spot is right betweeen Micro Beach and Managaha Island, which catches the strong North/Northwest winds. If you don’t want to bring your own gear, rentals are available at the Hyatt Hotel beach.
Saipan hosts several triathlons every year. The two biggest events are usually the Xterra and the Tagaman triathlon.
