A memorial cemetery commemorating fallen soldiers, National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific is known locally as "Punchbowl Cemetery." The common name refers to the cemetery's position at the Punchbowl Crater, an extinct volcano. Since the cemetery's founding in 1948, thousands of veterans have been interred. Pay a visit to the chapel where a tribute to the battles fought by the interred is inscribed on the walls. The tropical climate supports gardens in the cemetery that act as a natural tribute to the soldiers who lie in its grounds.

  • Go by car. You can park and walk around. Tours can only drive by. The Memorial and seeing all of the headstones of fallen Veterans is very moving.

  • This is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. It is a solemn reminder of the cost of freedom. There are murals which depict the battles of World War 2 in the Pacific, Korea and Vietnam. The view...

  • Beautifully maintained cemetery and remembrance area. The remembrance area is just fantastically built and cared for. So many men and women who served our country are laid to rest here. Please do remember that this location is an active cemetery, where services continue to be conducted. Be respectful for those who come to give thanks and those who come to be with their loved ones.
  • Beautiful resting place to honor those that sacrificed so much and well maintained! Only a short drive from Honolulu. The short drive leading up to the cemetery was gorgeous you should pull over and enjoy the stunning view. The staff was courteous and respectful. The service was simple but perfect!
