East O’ahu

East O’ahu includes Hanauma Bay, Halona Blowhole, Sandy Beach, the Koko Crater, Punchbowl Cemetery, USS Arizona and Pearl Harbor, the USS Missouri, and Ford Island.

Pearl Harbor is part of the U. S. National Park Service. The Arizona Memorial and the World War II Valor in the Pacific is open to the public for free from 7am through 4pm. The Pacific Aviation Museum, located on Ford Island in two hangars that withstood the attack of December 7, 1941, has been listed as Hawaii’s #1 Historical attraction. The museum is open from 8am to 5pm daily and has 45 aircraft exhibits including ‘the flying tiger,’ ‘the Cobra,’ and the first aircraft to land on Iwo Jima. For more information, check out www.pacificaviationmuseum.org or call 808-441-1000. Complete your Pearl Harbor experience with a trip to the Battleship Missouri and see where World War II ended. Walk the decks where General MacArthur accepted the surrender, and stand under the 67-foot long guns that fired 2,700 pound shells.
