Unfortunately, when we visited, there was an extremely loud religious group, dominating the site as their loud voices carried almost everywhere. However, ignoring this, we could see that the site was well set out with sufficient information, well presented. We were particularly impressed by the signposts pointing in the direction of other areas of conflict during the Second World War. On a normal, quiet day I am sure that the beauty of the site offers ample scope for peaceful, quiet reflection.

Although not much in the way of interpretive information, I found the two locations we visited on that side of Guam to be fascinating bits of WWII history!

Great history lesson. The museum is on the small side, but the content and interactive material makes up for the small square footage. Definitely a must stop for War History.

This Historic Park is split into two locations on the western shore of the island. There is a visitors center with a museum and gift shop that is free to enter, and five miles north there is another section which played a role in the conflict. If you’re a World War II buff, you would probably find it interesting. There’s not much to it.

I was disappointed at this place. It is one of the landing beaches that the Marines came in on but other than that not much to see. Its basically a large park with a couple of signs up. The Museum is down the road by the Navy Base entrance and it can be looked thru in about 45 minutes.

I love any national park / historical park, but for some reason I expected something bigger. The visitors center was well done, but don’t plan on more than 30-45 minutes.

The park is on the site of one of the US amphibious landings on Guam in WWII and is interesting because of that. However, its a bit sparse and not well cared for. It’s a 20 minute stop unless you are a serious history buff.

Guam occupies a strategic location in the Pacific Ocean. The Japanese occupation and American liberation of the island were significant events in the War in the Pacific during WWII. The visitor center provides displays covering all three sides (Japanese, American and Guamanian) and the effect on island life. There is a 10 minute movie on the battle for Guam.

War is never a pleasant experience. But it’s so amusing to see the bunkers, shores and guns preserved gives you goosebumps as they still give you the smell of gunpowders from the war. No war. Period.

Most visitors do not understand the significance of this National Park. It seems obvious only to Locals and the Military, but there is enough information provided for those that take the time to find out, explore the park in its entirety. The Park is also a great place to take leisure walks, ride a bicycle, jog or have a picnic. The rocky beach is fun for kids because of the tiny hermit crabs. Kids can hold them, it tickles their palms. You might just get lucky and find interesting items that were washed ashore, just practice caution, there are rocks and debris. It is not a place to swim in due to the rocks and rough currents. The path behind the restrooms lead up the hill and down towards the circle near the flag poles; this makes for a brisk and challenging walk. The park is also used for US Federal Holiday celebrations and the famous Easter Egg Hunt. CAUTION: There might be some areas that will be blocked off for safety precautions like the Fire Ant infestation some years back, just be cautious. So take the family, friends and visit for awhile and be thankful for the sacrifices of those that lived during that era; I am thankful every day.
