Have been coming to Oahu for years. Never knew how easy it was to see these fireworks. You don't need to go to the Hilton. They are easily seen from the Waikiki Beach. Well worth it.

Can't believe people complain about this free event. Get to the beach early and find a spot, you will have no problem working out where to watch it from, it is obvious where they are set off from. 5-10 minutes of quality fireworks.

Walk down to the beachside of Fort Derussy park around 645 pm for a nice ten minute fireworks display. Lots of restaurants nearby.

A very small and short fireworks show. Don't expect much, and you can't see it from most of the hilton property.

We were staying at the Hilton. Went downstairs and got a blizzard. People were gathering for the viewing. I went to our lanai to watch from there. The height of the fireworks was great.

At dusk. You can get there early to get a seat and the Hilton has its on little shopping strips that you can wander around before the crowds. Well worth a visit
