Things to see

Famous as a movie location and unfortunate site of World War bombings, Pearl City, overlooking the harbor of the same name, now has a lot more to attract its visitors. On Ford Island, the little stretch of land sitting between East and Middle lochs, 2 vast hangars have been converted into the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor. Airshows take place here annually, drawing mammoth crowds to view planes past and present, while general admission the rest of the year includes a 12 minute movie depicting the surprise assault on the island and its devastating results. History buffs shouldn’t leave the sparkling waters of Pearl Harbor without taking a visit to the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park nearby. Board the 80-man submarine and explore its cramped quarters and narrow bulkheads, discovering firsthand how life must have been beneath the ocean waves. There’s an impressive collection of maritime artifacts in the land-based museum, including a genuine Poseidon C-3 missile. At the head of the lochs, Hawaii’s Plantation Village is a popular tourist attraction, a unique living museum of restored plantation homes, rebuilt ethnic housing, and a collection of civic buildings that held importance in rural village life. Meet the locals hard at work, before visiting the gift shop to pick out carefully carved wooden crafts, recipe books featuring local cuisine, and brightly colored handmade toys.

Hotels in Pearl City

Most hotels in Pearl City sit a little further along the coast where the deep harbor becomes more commercial with sand and ice cream shacks to enjoy instead of sweeping views over military vessels. You’ll see a lot of discount hotels in this bustling town, tall high-rise apartment hotels overlooking tropical gardens and the glistening ocean. Typically, you’ll have use of superb outdoor swimming pools surrounded by furnished sun terraces, airy bedrooms with modern technology, WiFi, flat-screen televisions, and a complimentary breakfast.

Where to stay

When you’re looking for hotels in Pearl City, you’ll need to look a little further out, past the district of Aiea, because there aren’t too many places to stay right in its center. The packed inner streets that lead towards the enormous bay, where the horizon is still broken by the grey hulks of US Naval vessels, are largely residential. When you travel round the coast, however, the island becomes a little more touristy and commercial, the perfect location for popular hotels, overlooking the warm golden sands of the beach and just a few minutes’ walk from trendy seaside bars and tempting seafood shacks.
