Ewa Villages is a census-designated place (CDP) located in the ?Ewa District and the City & County of Honolulu on the leeward side of O?ahu in Hawai?i some 20 miles (32 km) from downtown Honolulu. As of the 2010 census, the CDP had a population of 6,108.
This area was previously known as ?Ewa (in Hawaiian, ?ewa means "crooked"). In the late 19th century to early 20th century, ?Ewa was one of the large population centers on the island of O?ahu, with industry focused around sugar cane production. The ?Ewa Mill was a major employer that set up residential villages within ?Ewa (from which the modern name arose). Sugar cane is no longer grown on the ?Ewa Plain and ?Ewa is now one of O?ahu's suburban growth centers--an area of substantial sprawl spreading unbroken to ?Ewa Gentry and ?Ewa Beach on the south, Kalaeloa on the southwest, and Kapolei on the west. This area is now referred to as O?ahu's Second City, with a city center (downtown) located in Kapolei.
Honouliuli is a former village and now a place name for the north end of ?Ewa, lying along Honouliuli Stream between ?Ewa Villages and Waipahu.
The U.S. postal code for ?Ewa is 96706, the same as for ?Ewa Beach.
Ewa Villages is located at  inland from ?Ewa Beach along the main thoroughfare of State Rte. 76 (Fort Weaver Road). This highway runs north past Honouliuli to Waipahu, connecting there to Farrington Highway and the H-1 freeway. The main east-west thoroughfare in ?Ewa Villages is Renton Road which connects to Kalaeloa and Kapolei to the west. Eventually the Kapiolei Parkway will replace Renton Road as the main east-west thoroughfare for the Second City south of H-1 and Farrington Highway.(21.342155, -158.041679),
According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 1.1 square miles (2.9 km2), all land.
?Ewa is a widely used directional term on O?ahu, referring to the direction of the town of ?Ewa but meaning westward to those residing and working in Honolulu. Its opposite is "Diamond Head" (located at the east end of Waik?k?) or "Koko Head" (located still further east of downtown Honolulu).
