After touring Pearl Harbor, our package including touring this National Memorial Cemetery as well as a city tour. We have taken this tour three times and highly recommend it. It is a beautiful place and should be visited by everyone touring Hawaii.

For a cemetery, it was very nice. The area is well kept and attractive. We had a great tour guide and learned all about the area. It is nice that people care enough to ensure those that are laid to rest there are respected.

The bus from our Pearl Harbor tour drove through the cemetery of the Pacific. Beautiful view of downtown Honolulu and the Diamond Head crater from the drive up to the park. Wish we could have stopped and spent a short amount of time there.

I have seen tour busses there, personally I feel renting a car and driving up to the punch bowl (National Cemetery) on your own is a much better option. You get the feel of the land much better that way. Take as much time as... More

Yes, it is open to the public. It is a National Cemetery.
Can one purchase Flowers to place at a grave site at the cemetery itself? If not, does anyone know if there are any flower stops close by? Regards

There are numerous flower shops that are right down the road in Chinatown that has beautiful flower arrangements. Safeway is also down the street at the corner of King and Pali. Nothing is sold on site.
