This stop is important in that it gives history lovers a view from what would have been the vantage of the Japanese defenders during the American attack to retake the island. It allows you to appreciate the terrain and the sacrifices that comprised the battle. For those being dragged along by a history lover, the views of the hills, reef, and sea make it worth it.

Viewed this excellent display with brief review and great photos, 50th Anniversary Monument is beautiful but fa;ling into disrepair. Great view of Asan Beach and Bay.

Just a gem of a site! They’ve definitely added to it and has made it even more meaningful. The addition of the history of the occupation and liberation of Guam is pretty neat! Remembering the Sons of Guam who died during those hard times is humbling. Also, the memorial they placed for the Sons of Guam who perished during the attack on Pearl Harbor was equally solemn. To add to this the view of Asan Bay and Apra Harbor are just amazing! Definitely recommend just driving up there and taking in the sights and the beauty of the island.

One of the many spots on the island to soak up the WWII History. I can only imagine the conditions for fighting 72 years ago. Add the humidity, heat, mosquitoes...and, you're carried back to the invasion in 1944. A special thanks to the men and women who fought and sacrificed their lives for America's freedom!

We almost didn't stop here but found it on accident while looking for a geocache. The memorial here is very well kept and well laid out. Also, because it is out of the way it doesn't have as much traffic as some of the more popular tourist destinations. There is a great view of Asan Beach from here along with some interpretive signs to provide additional insight into the battle fought here to liberate Guam from the Japanese.

One of seven sites under the National Park Service "War in the Pacific". The Asan Bay Overlook Memorial Wall contains the names of 1,880 U.S. servicemen who died in the 1941 defense of Guam. There are several bronze reliefs depicting WWII. At the overlook there are information boards telling of the American Offensive that was redesigned by Navy Signalman George Tweed who survived the Japanese occupation of Guam.
