In the Pacific Ocean, the Northern Mariana Islands are a US commonwealth. The largest island, Saipan, is famed for its sandy beaches and hilly terrain. The tiny, coral-fringed Maagaha islet lies in pristine waters off its west shore. Turtles live at the Grotto, a cavern dive site on Saipan's northeast shore. Nearby, memorials commemorate the Battle of Saipan's Banzai Cliff and Suicide Cliff.
