Welcome to Naval Base Guam

WELCOME TO GUAM! The island of Guam is located approximately 3,300 miles West of Hawaii, and 1,500 miles east of the Philippines and south of Japan. Guam is a territory of the United States and its residents are US citizens. The island is about 36 miles long, 6-12 miles wide and in many ways Guam is an all American community. But its multi-cultural ethnic mix offers a microcosm of the world. Guam's own rich Chamorro culture and heritage draws visitors from Japan, other Asian countries and Europe.
