Ewa Beach Park is a pupular place for swimming and picnicking, especially on the weekend when locals and visitors alike come out to play in the sun. Because it's located within a residential community, there are many useful services nearby for everyone's needs, including lunch if you don't fancy the fuss of a picnic. You can share your feast with your fur-baby on the grassy area behind the beach with its trees for shade.
About halfway to the water, the beach drops off sharply at the tide line, so watch your step here! Dogs are allowed on the beach below the high tide line, from the line of debris to the ocean, and in the water too, so be careful of the footing here. Visitors on the beach are rewarded with furtastic views of Diamond Head and Waikiki, not to mention the rolling waves. Bordered by Iroquois Point and near to Pearl Harbor, views and attractions abound.
Do be aware of "sea junk." There's lots of fishing here, and occasionally someone will drop a hook in the sand - keep your eyes peeled for such dangers. The beach is a pawsome place to collect limu, the edible seaweed pupular on the islands. Limu soup, anyone?
While there's no drinkable water provided, the park does feature restrooms, picnic tables and, for the 2-footed members of the family, sports fields and a playground. Bring anything you may need, such as portable water and clean up bags.
While it's not exactly a hazard, something to be aware of is that this beach is located adjacent to a military shooting range, and the ocean breezes and lapping waves will sometimes be punctuated by the sharp sound of gunfire. If your pup is ultra-sensitive to loud and sudden noises, this may not be the beach for you. When there's no target practice going on, you and your pooch will find a quiet oasis without congestion and noise, especially during the week. At all times, you'll find free parking in the large area next to the beach
So bring the pup and make a visit to Ewa Beach Park! If you're looking for sea, sun and sand, this is the pawrfect spot!
