Most of the spots in Downtown Honolulu are metered. But some are free. To locate them you can use the SpotAngels map before navigating to your desired area.

The map updates in real-time, so simply type in the address you’re parking near, the time you expect to be there, and your duration. The spots where you can legally park will appear on the map along with their prices. The green spots are the ones that are free of charge!
