Have you been to Guam? Any thoughts if it's a good beach vacation?

An old acquaintance lives in Guam (air Force). Her pics look beautiful.

It's nice, but there are better beach options closer (HI, Caribbean). And if you want to go that far, why not do Fiji, Tahiti, or Bali? Guam is kind of an in-between destination.

@A2. Miles speak. Guam has delta connectivity. Would you put Guam in the same league as Fiji or far lower than that?

I've been to Guam (ex-girlfriend in the Navy), but not Fiji. But compared to Hawaii or Cayman Islands, I would put it lower. Nice beaches and great people, but it feels like sort of a developing country. Maybe like Jamaica or DR. However, it's a lot cheaper, and there is the adventure aspect of it, which is cool because nobody has ever been there.

I was in the military and frequently went to Guam. What do you want to know about it?
