Laulau Beach is not good for swimming, but it's great for snorkelling and diving, as well as for sunbathing.

P.S.: Saipan is focused on China tourists. It's more expensive and more touristic than Guam. I'd prefer Guam. (But the beaches are better in Saipan.)

Saipan is really not the best island in the world, so it's worth to get here only in case if you find cheap flight (usually from Japan/South Korea). But in fact it has a lot of interesting sights. So it is best to take extended guided tour around the island.
