Ewa Beach Park

Ewa Beach Park (see more photos) is the main beach in the residential community of the same name – Ewa Beach. The five-acre park is fronted by a narrow sandy beach. It is a popular swimming and picnicking location among local residents.The beach is also a good spot to gather edible seaweed, called limu in Hawaiian.

wa means “strayed” in the Hawaiian language. The name comes from an ancient Hawaiian legend, which tells of two gods, Kane and Kanaloa. As they traveled around Oahu they decided to throw a stone to mark the boundaries of the different land divisions.

Wherever a stone fell would be the border of two land divisions. They were unable to find the stone that they threw on the island's wide plain west of Pearl Harbor, so they named this area Ewa (“strayed”) for the stone that strayed.

Waikiki Beach

Waikiki Beach is not only the most famous beach, but also one of the most recognized Oahu beaches and spots in the world.

It really should be known as Waikiki Beaches, with the many different sections that make up this two-mile stretch of white sand. Together, these beach sections make what everyone refers to as Waikiki Beach, one of the busiest and most cosmopolitan spots in Oahu where a plethora of activities geared towards tourists seem to go on all day and most of the night.

Whether you are looking forward to surfing, canoe paddling, snorkeling, swimming, boogie boarding, sand combing, catching a golden tan, people watching, or marveling at a few beautiful Waikiki sunsets, it’s very easy to have a good time on the different areas of Waikiki Beach.

There is also a beautiful Waikiki Beach promenade, available for those who are interested in taking a leisurely stroll to absorb all the action.

The one thing I love most about Waikiki Beach is no matter where you end up, there’s always lots of stimulating activity surrounding you. Personally I like to grab my beach chair, sit back and take it all in.

But with that being said, there are some sections that tend to be a little more calm than others, offer wider stretches of sand down to the ocean, and some sections that are more dare I say, secluded.
