About
This weekly fireworks bonanza happening on Duke Kahanamoku Beach has been a long-standing tradition since 1988. The 10-minute show can be seen from various parts of the neighborhood, but the best vantage point is on Waikiki Beach—between the Hilton Hawaiian Village and Outrigger Reef. Ensure you’re far enough from tall buildings and arrive at least 30 minutes prior to snag a good spot. For a fancier occasion, get on board a sunset cruise and watch the fireworks from the boat—with the stunning Waikiki skyline and Diamond Head as the backdrop. It’s a fantastic way to commemorate your trip with a bang. – Tripadvisor

    Nice Show
    They didn’t last 10 minutes, but it was actually a very nice show. Great colors and lots of action. Head down close to the marina or the beach area right behind the Hilton Hawaiian Village for the best views.

    A Lovely Surprise
    We found out about the free fireworks on the beach by accident. But what a lovely surprise. We all started gathering on the beach a little after sundown. There was a vendor selling these flying lights that looked like balls in the air. They were so beautiful. So we were treated to a mini light show before the fireworks even began. But when they did start, they were amazing. Bam, bam, bam one right after another and they were gorgeous. Non stop for probably 20-30 minutes. It was so lovely standing on the beach with dozens of strangers sharing a beautiful light show in the sky, over the water. The entire thing was put on by the Hilton and I highly recommend trying to see it if you visit Waikiki.

    A great display
    The Hilton puts on a great fireworks display on Friday nights that is free for anyone to see. The first night, we went down to the beach along with hundreds of other people to watch the show. An impressive display that lasts for under 5 minutes. Thereafter, we were able to watch them from the lanai of our nearby condo (without having to dodge people to get a better view). If you’re in the area, they are worth taking in.

    Fireworks in Paradise!
    We had heard about this prior to arriving in Honolulu. We missed seeing them our first Friday night there, but extended our stay another week and made it down to the shore in time to catch these amazing fireworks! They were beautiful! Every Friday night at 7:45! You won’t want to miss them!

If you could give less that 1 star, that would be generous! This had to have cost less than $500, and the lead up is the biggest let down I’ve ever witnessed! 3 1/2 minutes of sub par fireworks with a finale that definitely left any viewer wanting… sorry I took the time to watch it.

The display was amazing and the setting was perfect. However, the show was only 5 minutes long and started at 7:45 so be there before that time or get left out.

Fireworks are a hit with our grandkids, so we made sure to view these on Friday evening. Lots of people but not uncomfortably crowded.

The fireworks were a nice touch to a friday night. People really seemed to enjoy them. It does get crowded. If you are staying at the hotel the view from the Ali'i Tower toward the Ilikai, and Rainbow Towers toward Diamond Head is best.

This is an amazing opportunity to watch some great fireworks. It doesn’t take very long to watch maybe less than 10 minutes. In worth the time and effort!

Wonderful fireworks that can be seen from anywhere on the beach.
Perfect spot at the food truck, by the way, because you have the hotels in the background.
In winter: bring a jacket...
