Mangilao derives its name from the Chamorro word “ilao”, which means to look for something. In the past, hunters and fishermen would go to Mangilao to search for crabs, deer, wild pigs and fish.

The village of Mangilao today is fairly new, but the area has ancient sites that date back more than a thousand years. The district of Pagat, located on Route 15 (commonly referred to as the back road to Andersen Air Force Base), was once an ancient Chamorro village. Pagat is one of the most scenic areas on the island, with breathtaking cliff lines that overlook the Pacific Ocean, and jungle that lead to freshwater caves and ancient latte stones.

The village hosts two institutions of higher learning, the University of Guam and the Guam Community College. The village also hosts several major government agencies, including the Department of Public Health and Social Services, Department of Agriculture, Department of Corrections, Department of Youth Affairs and several schools.

Mangilao is also home to the oceanfront Mangilao Golf Course, one of Guam’s finest!
