Oahu on a Budget: 5 Things to Do for Free



Vacation travel is supposed to be fun and help relieve stress. Take some of the stress off of your wallet with these free things to do while you’re on Oahu.



Only in Oahu can you walk the world-famous Waikiki Beach.

Walk Along a Beach… in the City

If you are in Hawaii, you are never far from a beach. This is definately true on Oahu. You can start your walking adventure in Waikiki on the Queens Walkway Into The Ocean, located at Sans Souci State Recreational Park. From there, follow the soft sand to Kūhiō Beach, with it’s calm blue water. Keep on walking and you’ll soon arrive at Waikiki Beach, and meet Duke Paoa Kahanamoku. This impressive 9-foot tall statue honors the Hawaiian Olympic champion, credited as the father of international surfing. Whether you choose to walk in the sand or in the ocean, a beach walk can be very relaxing.

    Charm and history combine at The Royal Hawaiian.

    Learn History at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel

    Affectionately known as the “Pink Palace”, The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort - Opens a dialog is a unique hotel with historic Hawaiian artifacts. Guests of the resort can learn about the resort’s cultural impact from the days of the Hawaiian Monarchy. Complimentary walking tours covering the history and sacred grounds of the hotel are available on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. If you are a guest of the hotel, which I highly recommend, additional complimentary activities are available, such as learning how to make beautiful floral leis, Lauhala bracelets, and more.

        Waimean Bay Beach Park, calm in the summer and wild in the winter.

        Waimea Bay Beach Park

        Located on the North Shore, Waimea Bay Beach Park is famous for incredible 30-foot waves (in the winter) and is a hot spot to watch death-defying surfing. This is not the spot to try surfing for the first time! In the summer the waves calm down a lot, but it’s still pretty awesome for swimming and snorkeling. Beyond the water and sand related activities, Waimea Bay Beach Park has stunning views of the North Shore.

          Fireworks light up the sky above Hilton Hawaiian Village.

          Summer Fireworks at Hilton Hawaiian Village

          Every Friday night Hilton Hawaiian Village - Opens a dialog lights up the sky over Waikiki Beach. This free fireworks show has become a beloved tradition for visitors and Hawaiian residents alike. Pack a picnic snack and claim your spot on the sand early for this spectacular event, which can be seen around Waikiki and Ala Moana Beach.

              The Hololulu Fish Market sells up to 90,000 pounds of fish per day.

              Honolulu Fish Auction

              You’ll have to get up super early for this one, but it’s worth it! Based on the system at Tokyo’s historic Tsukiji Market, The Honolulu Fish Auction is the only tuna auction in the entire United States. Located at Pier 38, this auction sells sometimes up to 90,000 pounds of fish each day. Show up around 6 am to see what it’s all about, and don’t forget that it can be a little cold so bring a sweater. The auction is free (unless you WANT to buy some fish) and open to the public.
