Did you know that Pearl Harbor, named for the pearl oysters once harvested there, is the largest natural harbour in Hawaii and the only naval base in the United States to be designated a National Historical Landmark?
Pearl Harbor is where World War II began and ended. On Sunday, December 7, 1941, the day which has become known in American history as the Day of Infamy, the United States’ naval base at Pearl Harbor came under a surprise attack from the Japanese navy.
The visitors’ center and monuments provide meaning for all ages and is by far, one of Oahu’s most well-known landmarks. But wait, at Pearl Harbor WWII buffs can visit the USS Bowfin Submarine, the Battleship Missouri and the Pacific Aviation Museum. So GET curious on OAHU and explore the military history at Pearl Harbor that has touched the world.
Pearl Harbor is a short and inexpensive bus ride from Waikiki Beach.
