Such a significant event took place here, and it so beautiful. I highly recommend this stop to pay respects and feel the south pacific breeze on your face while looking at the wonderful coastline and beautiful ocean.

This sobering lookout was the site of many Japanese deaths, including entire families who were told the Americans would kill them. You can see for miles and is also a MUST SEE when in Saipan.

The place does not need promotional brochures, signage, gimmicks. The monumental tragedy of a portion of WWII is embodied here. Very tasteful and peaceful. Hardly a whisper is heard.

Rode up to the cliff to see the Island and it's still pretty basic. You can still only see a small portion of the northern part of the island...nothing special.

Natural scenery easily accessed by car. It is located at the northern part of Saipan. You can visit Suicide Cliff and other places eg Banzai Cliff, Last Commander Post, Korean Memorial, The Grotto, the Bird Island Lookout and Kalabera Cave in one day. However, while thinking about Suicide Cliff's history, it is more than a pure sight seeing place. Unless... More

Marpi's point is one of the cliffs where the battle ended. As my father (WW2 veteran with the Marines in the Battle of Saipan) described -in the final battle of Saipan, the GI's were chased up the road by the Japanese, The Japanese were soused on sake, yelled Banzai and then jumped. Seeing the actual place was much more deeply... More

This is a wonderful site to visit. It's a beautiful part of the island, but even more, it's an important part of history that is oft-neglected in US history books. I learned a lot, and it was a somber visit, a place to think about the meaning of life and national pride. How amazing that after the events here, everyone... More

Heading up to the cliffs after visiting the museum in garapan was the best idea. It gives you a deeper perspective and really soaks you up into the reality that was ww2. About 8thousand people jumped off of these cliffs to commit suicide. Seeing the sheer cliffs is just gut wrenching to imagine so many lives lost here. If you... More
