We seen numerous Hula dances, but these ladies were simply amazing. A great show on the Hula hill and best of all it was free.

We had a great time, would definitely recommend! Get there 30 minutes in advance to get a good spot and bring a towel to sit on.

We didn't get in early enough for a seat so was stuck up the back on the sand and was difficult to see everything. Nice enough to see but would probably not bother again. Once is enough.

Beautiful free hula show. I'd say get there at least 30 min early, we went on a Tuesday and it was packed! You can see the entertainers really enjoy what they do, and it's nice to be so up close to them.

I would suggest calling them. I believe the dates change depending on other things - but whatever you find out GET THERE EARLY! There won't be a place to sit and they will recommend 30 minutes - that's not early enough... More

Absolutely!! You can bring a snack and absolutely bring a blanket. I'm afraid I couldn't tell you though about best authentic food.
