Tinian has some great beaches, including the beautiful white-sand Taga Beach, where local people go on Sunday.
In San Jose, the small (and only) town on the island, you can visit Taga House with its 12 mammoth stones (the stones were traditionally used to support Chamorro structures).
Outside of town, you can visit the Taga Stone Quarry to see giant stones that were cut but never taken out of the ground. You can see all the sights of the island and get in some swimming and gambling.
Tinian's main attractions are the airstrips used by the US military during World War II. There is a monument at the north end of Tinian where the bomber Enola Gay took off for Hiroshima carrying the first atomic bomb.
Tinian is home to the only remaining Shinto shrine in the Mariana Islands, an artifact from the days of Japanese colonization.
