Things to Do



 

Bear Rock is a natural formation of the rock, the wear and tear of the rock. Somebody said there was a story of a bear, but I think it was just a made-up story, I don’t think it is a legend. Because it’s not part of our legend, it’s just a formation of a rock, a natural formation that happens through nature as the years and the wear and so on.



Chief Gadao Cave is located in the area of Guaifan, near the entrance to Inarajan Bay, is a cave with ancient pictographs of stick figure people well known on Guam and often used as cultural icons. Chief Gadao was a legendary chief of Inarajan who, according to legend, outsmarted a chief from Tumon who came to Inarajan to challenge Gadao to contests of strength. Part of the legend tells how the two powerful chiefs rowed a canoe in opposite directions, breaking the canoe in half. A statue of Chief Gadao rowing his half of the canoe back to Inarajan is located along the shores of the main village.



Gef Pa'go Chamorro Cultural Village is located along Inarajan Bay in the main village, the thatched huts of Gef Pa’go are a popular attraction for students, tourists and other interested visitors who want to learn about the island’s past. Some of the village elders tell stories of their childhood and give demonstrations of traditional Chamorro cooking, crafts and arts. The cultural center also has exhibits of ancient Chamorro tools, tours of historical homes in the village, and cultural dances.



Some of the oldest (Historic) homes in the village have been preserved using federal funds, and the Gef Pa’go Cultural Village gives a tour of the Leon Guerrero House, built in 1901, which housed the village commissioner and his sixteen children. Historic Inalajan Foundation is also working on restoring the Jose Duenas Cruz (Beck-Ping Cruz) House, and the George Flores two-story building. 



Inarajan’s Community Center highlights what is characteristic about the village—its history. The original building, constructed and designed by the U.S. Navy in 1925, first served as a school.  It was eventually taken over by the Inarajan Mayor’s Office and served as a recreational meeting place for the village residents.



Salaglula (Inarajan) Pool consists of natural pools of sea water are located toward the southern side of the main village.
