Two Lovers Point Apr 17, 2009
Two Lovers Point or Puntan Dos Amantes is located at Tumon Bay, Guam. Legends told that there was a pair of lovers who loved each other but her parents would not allow them to marry because of social status differences. Both of them tied their hair together and jumped off from 378-foot cliff to their deaths.
With admission fee for only $3 per person, we could see a remarkable view of the island of Guam, white sandy beach and great ocean view of Philippine Sea. Sunset was great to be seen from this place too. Lovers normally bought a “two lovers point padlock” and locked them on the fence of the gazebo to declare their love with the hope that their love would last forever. A wedding chapel was also available. Normally Japanese or Korean hold their weddings at this place.
Here is the brief legend of Two Lovers Point:
When Spain colonized Guam, a proud family lived in Agana. The father was a wealthy Spanish and the mother was a Chamorro (local name for Guamanian). They have a very beautiful daughter.
One day an arrogant Spanish Captain came to ask the father to give him permission to marry his daughter. The father agreed. When the girl find out about this, she ran from the house and wandered along the shore to clear up her mind.
When she walked, she met a young and handsome Chamorro boy from a good family. Their eyes met and they feel in love. When the father of the girl found out about the two lovers, he got angry and insisted her to marry the Spanish captain. That evening, she ran out from the house and met him near the high point where they first met to watch the stars together.
When the father found out that the girl was gone, he told the captain that his daughter was kidnapped by the Chamorro boy. The father, the captain and all the soldiers were looking for them up to the high cliff of Tumon bay. When they were approaching, they saw the two lovers stood at the edge of the cliff. They boy shouted for the people to stay back but they didn’t wanna listen. They both took the long strands of their hair and tied them together like a knot. They looked deeply into each other’s eyes and kissed for the very last time. After that, the both jumped off from the long, deep cliff into the roaring waves below.
Since that day, the Chamorros paying respect to the young couple who showed them the real love.
