About this project:

The Bird Island lookout is one of Saipan's most famous tourist attractions. As the vision for a world-class destination stands, the transformation of the Bird Island lookout has received the following upgrades: 1) replacement or the trash bins, 2) removal of the cigarette receptacles (this is a smoke-free zone), and 3) installation of lookout and trail signs. The remaining transformations will be made soon and include the following: 1) repairing the railings, 2) reconstruction of the stairway, 3) removal of items/objects that obstruct the panoramic view, 4) painting in the parking lot, and 4) implementation of the landscape design.


About this site:

Situated in a picturesque bay in Saipan’s rugged northeastern coast, the tiny, rugged island is separated from Saipan by a fringing reef, a narrow stretch of shallow lagoon and a lovely white sand beach. During the Japanese administration, the island was known as tsukimi or “moon viewing island.” So named for the hundreds of birds that nest there, Bird Island is a must-see attraction in Saipan. One of the marine sanctuaries where fishing is strictly prohibited, it is also one of the three areas on Saipan with volcanic deposits. (Courtesy of the Marianas Visitors Authority)
