The location on the main highway is the most public location.
The main location has a very large obelisk hidden behind a large hill and facing the ocean. You will also see a marker indentifying the location of the Command Post of Brig General L.G. Shepherd from 1944. In addition to the Command Post marker, you will be able to walk on the same site where the Japanese Gun Fortification still stands. Below the fortification at the bottom of the cliff are Japanese pillboxes & machine gun mounts. From the pillbox vantage point and down the beach, you will be able to see the Underwater Observatory called the Fish Eye Visitor Center. As I stated there are other War in the Pacific National Historical Parks on Guam. Directly above the main war of the pacific location, in the above cliff is another location. Yes, you can drive there. From this area you have the same vantage point as WWII Japanese generals used to conduct anti-American landing maneuvers. Up the road from this vantage point there are several historical makers and locations that the Japanese army carved tunnels into the mountainside. Several semi trailer trucks can park in these tunnels. There are several more WWII historical areas but you have to go and find them your self.
Before you go, perform an Internet search for a Sgt. Shoichi Yokoi, a Japanese troop who lived in the jungles of Guam for 28 years after the war.
In addition to WWII history, there are many Magellan historic locations to explore, but that is another Trip Advisor tidbit.
