Ewa Beach

            According to legend, Ewa Beach got its name from the myth that while the Gods were playing a game of ‘ulu maika,’ one of their stones went astray. They called the spot where it landed Ewa, which means “stray” in Hawaiian. Situated on the southernmost portion of Oahu, the term “Ewa” is also a reference to the direction of Ewa Beach, which is westward along the shore. The main thoroughfare through town is Fort Weaver Road (State Rte. 76), which runs north to Waipahu. Ewa Beach is bordered by Iroquois Point and Pearl Harbor to the east, Barbers Point (Kalaeloa) to the west, Ewa and Kapolei to the North and 3.5 miles of shoreline to the south.
            Due to its fertile soil and vegetation, Ewa Beach was a prime sugar production site in the mid-1900s. When this industry crumbled in the 1940s, Ewa Beach became known as a tropical destination for locals and tourists. Its close location to the site of the Pearl Harbor bombing during World War II affected the community only slightly, and it bounced back quickly to confirm its standing as a prime vacation destination –as well as a place for people who want a little piece of paradise to call home.
    With spectacular views of Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head, Ewa Beach offers a flavor of old Hawaii, but is only about 20 miles from everything Honolulu has to offer. Known to get more sun than any other spot on Oahu, popular activities include surfing, swimming, boogie boarding, fishing, and hiking. Other recreation attractions include the West Loch Golf Course and the New Ewa Beach Golf Club. Landmarks include Ewa Beach Park, Ewa Beach Community Park and One’ula “Hau Bush” Beach Park.
