This dazzling event has been a beloved tradition since 1988 thanks to the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort. The show takes place just in front of the resort.

Show time varies by season. The current time is posted on the Hilton's beach each Friday. Or search "Waikiki Friday Fireworks" as your Maps destination.

My favorite spot to watch is Fort DeRussy Beach with a wide beach and a perfect view. Duke Kahanamoku Beach is also good but can be more crowded.

Or, escape the crowds to the other end of Waikiki Beach. Barefoot Beach Cafe has live music, great food and a panoramic view of the skyline & fireworks.
