Located on Oahu’s south coast, about 12 miles west of Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, the US naval base of Pearl Harbor is a site of huge historical interest, in large part due to its role during WWII when it faced a devastating surprise attack by Japanese forces.

Today the area provides a fascinating and often emotionally draining tribute in a number of museums and memorials dedicated to the traumatic events of December 1941. For those visiting Waikiki who would like to make the short hop to Pearl Harbor, we’ve picked out some of the best tours currently available.
