Mangilao is a village on the eastern shore of the United States territory of Guam. The village's population has increased slightly following the island's 2000 census.[2]

Cliffs lie along much of the village's shoreline providing dramatic views, but few of Mangilao's beaches are available for recreational uses. The island's main prison is in Mangilao.

In the far northeastern part of Mangilao's municipal boundary is a community known as Latte Heights, which is much closer to central Dededo than the main village of Mangilao.
