You don’t have to be on your honeymoon to visit Two Lovers Point in Guam. With a name like that, the place is bound to bring out the romantic in you! Known as Puntan Dos Amantes in the local language, this is a place that symbolizes the love and devotion of two young people, very much in love.
The Myth of Two Lovers Point Guam
Like all legendary love stories, this one is also one fraught with passion, drama, strife and tragedy. She, the highborn daughter of a Chamorro chief was betrothed to a Spanish Captain, but was passionately in love with a young Chamorro warrior of modest means. The lovers tried to elope, but were pursued by her father and the Spanish army. They found themselves trapped atop a high cliff overlooking the Tumon Bay. With no hope of a life together, they decided to embrace death together. As her father and the soldiers watched in shocked disbelief, the two lovers tied together their long black hair in a single knot and leapt off the cliff together into the waves churning at the reefs below to meet a watery death.
Since then, the cliff top has been revered as a monument to true love in honor of the two lovers who were forever entwined in life and death and the place came to be called Two Lovers Point. The place has also come to be a metaphor for the unflinching resilience of the Chamorro culture and its people.
