Two Lovers Point
*Free gift with purchase, see Shop Guam app for details
Puntan Dos Amantes, or Two Lovers Point, is without a doubt one of Guam’s most iconic - and romantic - attractions. Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors are drawn to the towering cliff that is the site of one of Guam’s most well known and romantic legends.
The legend of Two Lovers Point is a timeless, bittersweet tale of eternal love. Long ago, during the Spanish colonial era, the oldest daughter of a great maga’låhi (Chamorro chief) ran away from home in defiance of her father’s demand that she marry a powerful Spanish captain. On a secluded beach that evening, she met and fell in love with a young man from a Chamorro family. When the Chamorro chief found out about his daughter and the young man, he, along with the Spanish captain and several soldiers, pursued the couple to edge of the cliff that towers above Tumon Bay. There, the two lovers tied their long hair together into a single knot and leapt over the long, steep cliff into the roaring waters below, never to be seen again. From that day on, the cliff became forever known as Two Lovers Point (Puntan Dos Amantes).
Today, the Two Lovers Point site features two tiered lookout points that offer a sweeping view of breathtaking Tumon Bay, high above crashing ocean waves 400 feet below. In the middle of the park, a magnificent brass statue of two lovers locked in an embrace gleams in the sun and extends to the sky. Couples can purchase a lovelock, attach it to the railing and throw the key into the ocean to symbolize their own eternal love.
