Northern Mariana Islands

Saipan, the largest island of the USA’s Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, is one of fifteen tropical islands belonging to the Marianas archipelago in the western Pacific Ocean. Situated around 120 miles north of Guam, it covers an area of around 44 square miles with sandy beaches on the west of the island and rocky cliffs on the east side.

Saipan competes with Guam for the large number of Japanese and South Korean tourists who flock to its shores and it has the distinction of being the fastest growing island in Micronesia. Guam attracts most of the the Japanese visitors, with Saipan the destination of choice for the majority of holidaymakers who arrive from South Korea.

There are only six golf courses on Saipan, but the quality belies the island's diminutive nature.

Our Northern Mariana Islands rankings were updated in January 2018.
