Hafa Adai! Welcome to Piti
Piti is located in the southern region and along Guam’s western coastline. Along Route 1, Marine Corp Drive, the seaside village of Piti is nestled between the villages of Asan and the U.S. Naval Station in Santa Rita.
Piti is about ten minutes away from both the U.S. Naval Hospital and the U.S. Naval Station. You can expect minimal traffic at any given time of day. This will make your daily commute a peaceful drive free of stressful traffic. For those who are traveling up to the northern regions of the island, such as Yigo, it will take you about thirty to forty minutes.
One of the most important facts about the location of Piti is that it is the home of the island’s commercial sea port, named Apra Harbor.
Living in this quiet seaside village is very peaceful. There are only approximately 1,666 people living in Piti. The village is a small residential area with curved two-lane roads and a scattering of homes, many of which date back to the decade after WWII.
Above the seaside area of Piti is the prestigious housing developments of Nimitz Estates, Mama Sandy Drive, and Turner Road. This area extending onto the Nimitz Hillside is also part of Piti. Here you will find many condominiums and houses spread along this residential hillside. The Nimitz Hill area is known for large homes and spectacular views of Apra Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. In certain parts of this hillside, you are able to experience a magnificent view of both the eastern and western coastlines of the island.
The village is lush with Guam’s thick green jungles and mangroves. It is also full of small Peninsulas encompassing Apra Harbor. One of the more popular peninsulas is called Polaris Point. This is a small peninsula that goes out into Apra Harbor and forms Inner Apra Harbor along with Orote Point.
The village also provides a small village market, a gas station, the Piti Power Plant, Apra Harbor, youth center and a public middle school.
Due to its close proximity to the commercial port, you can expect some commercial traffic coming in and out of the port facilities on a daily basis. Aside from this fact, the Piti residential area is truly beautiful and peaceful.
One advantage of living in Piti is that there are many aquatic related activities. Piti has many preserves and attractions to keep you and your family entertained. The village provides an underwater observatory called Fish Eye Marine Park. The Fish Eye Marine Park is an Underwater Observatory Center that welcomes visitors to get a fisheye view of the marine life that flourish under Guam’s waters. The observatory extends out from the coastline along a lengthy bridge to the deeper ocean waters. The Fish Eye Observatory is built on top of the Piti Bomb Hole Marine Preserves. The holes are natural coral formations that resemble a bomb hole, attracting many snorkelers and divers on a daily basis.
Up the road, Atlantis Guam is a company that offers guests a submarine tour of Guam’s reefs and waters. It is quite an experience unlike anything you may have experienced before. If you are a seafaring enthusiast, you would certainly be drawn towards the Marianas Yacht Club. Here, many small yachts and sailing vessels are docked and piloted. The Yacht Club also provides entertainment at night, making it a social gathering spot for residents of the area.
You can find two public beach parks located along the coastline to enjoy some fun in the sun. Both beach parks are equipped with pavilions and other recreational structures, suitable for parties and gatherings.
Apra Harbor is full of potential activities that are fun for the entire family. On Cabras island, a section of Apra Harbor, you can enjoy an area known as Family beach. Many people frequent this location and enjoy various water-related activities such as jet skiing, swimming, windsurfing, etc. Barbequing is another favorite activity here. In another section of the Harbor, you can enjoy another beach called the Port Authority Beach.
There are also many wonderful historical and natural sites. Piti Guns is one of the popular tourist attractions. These three guns date back to 1944 when the Japanese built the structure in Piti to defend the island of Guam.
