Ewa Beach, HI
Ewa Beach or simply Ewa is a census-designated place (CDP) located in Ewa District and the City & County of Honolulu along the leeward coast of Oahu in Hawaii. As of the 2010 Census, the CDP had a total population of 14,955. The word ewa means "crooked" or "ill-fitting" in Hawaiian. The name comes from the myth that the gods Kane and Kanaloa threw a stone to determine the boundaries, but it was lost and later found at Pili o Kahe. Along much of the South Shore of Oahu, Ewa is a reference to the direction of Ewa Beach, roughly westwards along the shore. Related terms are mauka (towards the mountains, roughly northwards), makai (towards the ocean, roughly South), and Diamond Head or Koko Head, roughly eastwards along the shore. The U.S. postal code for Ewa Beach is 96706
A little tidbit to know: in 2005, the team from ʻEwa Beach, representing (locally) West Oʻahu and the United States, captured the Little League World Series crown, beating Curaçao 7–6 in an extra inning after a walk-off home run.
Ewa Beach Park, sometimes the water is rough but it’s usually not very crowded, a great place to picnic, swim and enjoy the Hawaiian sun & sunsets. There is a sharp dropoff point just off the shore so be aware and watch the children.
Ewa Beach Community is neighbor to Kapolei, Makakilo and Ko'Olina where the very popular Disney Aulani Resort lies.
