Only two times a year does the sun set exactly along the Ewa Beach shoreline. This was one of those nights.
Ewa Beach is located along the leeward coast of Oahu in Hawaii.
The word "ʻewa" means "crooked" 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.
