It is flanked by the world-famous Diamond Head and the East Coast Cliffs. Hanauma, the "Curved" bay was declared a protected marine life conservation area and underwater park in 1967. Waiki Beach is Hawaiian for "Sprouting Water". This is one of the most famous beaches in the world. The two mile stretch of white sand coast is fronted by hotels and tourist facilities. This historic 15-block district is reported to be the oldest "Chinatown" in the United States, dating back 120 years. The Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbour commemorates the USS Arizona destroyed during the attack and the death of its 1,177 her crew. On the Eastern side of the island are great endless beaches like Kuhloa Beach Park and Waimanalo Beach. Haleiwa was established by missionaries in 1832. In 1899 with the building of the Haleiwa Hotel and the O'ahu Railroad, the town began to grow and thrive. Today, this quaint town is a mecca for surfers.
