It is the largest and southernmost island in the Mariana Islands archipelago. It is believed that Guam was first discovered by seafaring people who migrated from Southeast Asia around 2000 BC.

The Gaum Island is divided into northern limestone plateau and higher area of volcanic hills to the south. The plateau is covered with a thick growth of Jungle and volcanic hills support mainly sword grass.
