Fouha Point, also known as Fouha Rock or Creation Point, is a National Natural Landmark on the island of the United States territory of Guam. A natural rock formation, the point rises to some 150 feet (46 m) above the waters of Fouha Bay, close to the village of Umatac. The point was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1972.[1] According to Chamorro legend, the rock is the resting place of the goddess Fu’una who, with her brother Puntan, created the world.[2]
