The Place That Made Me Fall For Guam: Puntan Dos Amantes (Two Lovers Point)

I was not born and raised in Guam. In fact, I never really dreamed that one day I would settle in this place. I was used to the urban life – skyscrapers and busy streets with more concrete than trees. That was the kind of life I thought I would forever want. I never really see myself as the type of guy who would be so passionate about nature. I was all about living the moment, earning the big bucks, and making my way higher and higher up the corporate ladder.

Puntan Dos Amantes in Guam, changed all of that for me.

I went there on a side tour from a business trip. I read it was one of the most visited places Guam. Since I really was not the adventurous type, I chose it so that I know I will be safe because for sure, a lot of people will be there, too. I went in there not to have some passion-driven moment with nature and beauty, but for the sake of visiting at least one attraction of the place, so that I could tell my friends, that well, I went to Guam.

When I got to the place, I was at first feeling out of place. Most of the people visiting the place were couples. Well, after all, the place translates to “Two Lovers Point” so what should I have expected?

It felt awkward at first but then, again, I didn’t mind. I was there just to check the place out, anyway.

However, when I got to view the whole pacific Ocean and Tumon beach through the deck of this wonderful place, I could not believe my eyes.

The place was a beauty unlike any, I really fell in love. I fell in love with Guam, through Puntan Dos Amantes.

At 368 feet from the reefs down below, I embraced the gush of the wind and savoured the most relaxing and invigorating sight I have ever seen in my entire life. The mountainous volcanic views, the clear sea of blue and green, luscious green tress, and the fresh air, all brought me to a different world.

It was a sight that made me forgot all the couples around me, and me standing alone. This is because I did not feel alone that moment. I had the view and the majestic beauty of nature to accompany me.

It may all seem surreal but if you go and visit this place for yourself, bringing along someone you love, you can be sure that the view and the whole aura of the place will make you cry a happy tear.

I spent the entire afternoon just sitting on the deck, admiring a beauty I never imagined I will ever see, in my entire life.

As I think about my life, that moment, I made a promise to myself that I will always come back to this place, and discover more beauty of nature that it has to offer. I have never been so moved in my entire life, and I know that I want to keep that feeling because it helps me think about life and it helps me value what I have become so far.
