The Grotto

The only way to access it is by walking down 100 steps into a natural, well-lit cave, step over a narrow but fast stream onto a large, teetering rock, and stride over the edge into 15 foot deep water, but it’s more than worth it for keen divers. There are no facilities here, other than a solar-powered emergency phone and a well-paved road, but the Grotto is Saipan's best dive, and most unique, by far. An underwater limestone cavern plummeting seventy feet at its deepest point, the Grotto is home to a wealth of marine life including tropical fish and sea turtles, coral and reef sharks. It’s a hike, a swim and a sanctuary all in one.
