free show, family friendly with a local flavor. Dancers are locals of all ages. They put on a nice FREE show on the beach and you do need to see at least one hula show when you go to Hawaii.

Went to the show on the beach but was quite disappointed. The three musical performers were not very good and the dancer (just one!) also didn't do very much. Actually saw a much better show in the shopping centre the day before!
