Free Fun in Waikiki

Walk Waikiki Beach

Take off your shoes and wiggle your toes in the warm golden sand. This is Waikiki Beach, a two-mile stretch of shoreline known throughout the world. Start at the lagoons fronting the Hilton Hawaiian Village and continue on down the beach to the Natatorium War Memorial.

From the Hilton end, the beach narrows as you head towards Diamond head, passing the Reed Hotel and the graceful and prestigious Halekulani Hotel. Here you may need to climb on the seawall or follow the concrete path in front of the Halekulani. The view of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel is great from the beach.

The last beachfront hotel on this end of the beach is the "first lady" of Waikiki, the Moana Hotel. Now known as the Westin Moana Surfrider, she was the first luxury hotel built in Waikiki.

Kuhio Beach Park captures a lot of activity. There are vendors aplenty selling almost anything you could possibley need for a day at the beach. With Diamond Head still ahead, keep walking toward the quieter parts of the beach. At Kapi'olani Beach Park, the Queen's surf ares is terrific for swimming and sunning. Gone for the moment are the hotels. Now the beach is fronted by large lawns and giant trees, and the sprawling Kapi'olani Park is in the background. Ahead is the Waikiki Aquarium, then the beautiful and ghostly Natatorium War Memorial, built in 1972 to honor men and women of Hawaii who fought in World War I.

Don't leave Waikiki until you have walked the length of this famous beach. It's free but the memories are priceless!

Sunset Torch Lighting and Hula Show

One of Waikiki's new and signature attractions is the tradition of torch-lighting ceremonies that occurs most evenings throughout Waikiki. Less ceremony than ritual, what you'll see is a half-clothed, brown-skinned man running down the street, or on your hotel grounds, with a stick of fire in his hand. His job is to light the torches.

Enjoy a beautiful Hawaiian sunset, romantic torch lighting and conch shell ceremony, and authentic Hawaiian music and hula performances right on Waikiki Beach. The hour-long show starts just before sunset and features the young men of the "Men of Ho’a" in a torch lighting ceremony, followed by the award-winning hula halau schools dedicated to hula and Hawaiian culture from throughout Oahu.

Nightly except Mondays, weather-permitting. 6:30-7:30 PM (6:00-7:00 PM in Nov, Dec, Jan) at the Kuhio Beach Hula Mound, near Duke Kahanamoku statue, beachside at Uluniu & Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki. Outdoors, casual. Seating on the grass; beach chairs, mats, etc. okay. Cameras are welcome. Presented by the City & County of Honolulu, the Hawaii Tourism Authority, and the Waikiki Improvement Association. For information, call 843-8002.
