You get a great view from the lookout and a sobering glimpse of a lesser known part of WWII. The lookout looks over Bonzai cliff. I recommend seeing Bonzai first and then seeing Suicide cliff to see it from a different perspective

Here with a tour group. Very sacred environment. Hard to believe that mothers and their children jumped to their death from this cliff.

This is worth the car ride up to the top. Or, if you are crazy, cycle it! Tghe view is excellent and the little pieces of history come together even more once you have seen a number of places.

The drive up to the cliff is beautiful and when you get to the top of the cliff, there isn't much to see but you can view the edge of the island and its beautiful ocean. A good place to hike for few miles.

There are several places called suicide cliff. Some are just cliffs over land. The memorial over the water has spectacular views. Both are worth a visit.

Another legendary story - A must visit to Saipan's finest tourist spot. No admission just a old school way of a drive up visit. Be sure to visit Suicide Cliff.

We drove a rental car to get there and there is plenty of parking for cars. It is crowded, with tour buses full of Japanese and Chinese tourists coming and going. It sobering to see this famous cliff, but if you can get past the...More
