Piti Real Estate
Piti - A Diver's Dream
On the western shore of Guam just roughly two miles long and two miles wide is Piti. It is a busy little village that had a projected 1,945 residents in 2010, yet it is an essential area. The commercial port of Guam is found in Apra Harbor making Piti a port village vital to the trade and commerce of the island and a key transshipment hub of the Pacific. Just south on Marine Corps Drive is Polaris Point and U.S. Navy Base Guam in Sumay Agat, making Piti and the neighboring village of Asan a perfect place for those in the military looking for off-base housing.
Lovers of the water will definitely enjoy Piti and Asan as you are close to some of the best underwater sights Guam has to offer. Fish Eye Marine Park is your gateway to the breathtaking waters. You can stroll on the one thousand foot long boardwalk known as Two Lovers Bridge as you make your way to the underwater observatory located at Piti Bomb Hole. At the observatory you can stay dry while looking at fish and divers swim past. For an introduction to life under the sea you can also try Seawalker Tours where you don a helmet and walk on the bottom of the sea, or you can view the fish and divers from a submarine at Atlantis Guam, located in Apra Harbor by the Marianas Yacht Club and Port Authority Beach. Find Seawalker Tours and others in our Guam links section under Recreation.
Besides diving Piti Bomb Hole, you can also dive the famous wrecks of the Tokai Maru and SMS Cormoran. These shipwrecks located in Apra Harbor, have a unique history and were featured in the popular television program ‘Deep Sea Detectives’ on The History Channel. Advanced divers should also see the Blue Hole, which opens up to show you sharks, fish, and sea turtles gracefully enjoying the deep.
Above the water you can visit War in the Pacific National Historic Park where you can find Piti Guns. These three Japanese guns are historical remains from World War II. Also popular in the park is a 1-mile long running/walking course. Another great spot on the coast for a picnic or barbeque is the newer Tepungan Beach Park. Other village attractions include Santa Cruz Shrine, Guam Veterans Cemetery, and Sigua Falls below Mt. Alutom. Purchasing real estate in this area is definitely the way to go with all there is to see and do above and below the sea.
Piti real estate consists primarily of single-family residential homes and lots, rural agricultural lots and some commercial and industrial properties. There are many hillside ocean view properties and small beachfront properties as the village is located along Guam’s central coastline facing Apra Harbor and the Philippine Sea. Piti is home to Nimitz Hill, where there are many upscale ocean and city view homes, the popular Nimitz Hill Estates subdivision and Nimitz Towers Apartments. Neighboring Asan is also a small seaside village, just north of Piti and south of Guam’s Capitol Hagatna. It too is situated along Guam’s main highway, Route No. 1, Marine Corps Drive and features many nice ocean view homes on its hillsides. For serious investors, there are still several parcels of land available in the area suitable for upscale residential development or if you’re just looking for that perfect home or vacant lot to build a home, we at Pacific Rim Realty, will be happy to assist you.
