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.

  • The cemetery resides in the well-landscaped crater of an extinct volcano. It is peaceful and somber. From the rim there are great views of Honolulu.

  • Quick drive through in our bus. We did not get out and probably didn't need to. Its cool to see, and worth the drive up from the beach. Prolly not worth paying for though.

  • 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!
