Free Stuff to Do: Hula

Many hotels have free hula shows at night, so you might be able to find one just by getting off the elevator. Still, make time for the free hula show on the beach near Kaiulani Avenue. As of fall 2001 the show starts around 6:30pm and runs about an hour. The performers are all local people, and you can sit on some grass next to the beach, with the waves breaking a short distance away, and just r-e-l-a-x and be swept away. The whole experience is remarkably romantic, especially if there is an especially gorgeous sunset behind you. Worth a babysitting experience if Mom and Dad want to slip away for an hour.

Hula is otherwise available everywhere; we enjoy the show poolside at the Sheraton Waikiki, starting about 6:30 for 90 minutes or so. There is often a hula show at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center in the early evening.

We went to Germaine’s Luau. It’s not free. But, worth it.. Right on the ocean on the west coast. The kids loved the fire dance and my husband and I were swept away with all of it!
