Hoakalei Marina deleted from Ewa Beach resort

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Honolulu

Plans for a marina have been replaced with a lagoon in Ewa Beach.

The recreational lagoon in Ewa Beach is planned to be completed by 2015 and will feature many activities.

Plans to convert its 54-acre Ocean Pointe/Hoakalei marina site between White Plains Beach and Oneula Beach Park into a recreational lagoon with no surface connection to the ocean.

Tesha Malama, a 41-year Ewa Beach resident, said some boaters will be disappointed along with fishers who looked forward to slips and a public boat launch ramp that were planned along with the marina, but that the conversion to a lagoon is beneficial to the broader community.

“Intention to provide extensive public access to its lagoon, promenade, cultural and archaeological sites and to integrate its shoreline reaches with a continuum of beachfront park and recreational opportunity stretching from Oneula Beach Park in Ewa Beach to White Sands Beach in Kalaeloa is uniquely an attempt to privately produce a public good, for the benefit of the community and for the enhancement of the resort’s commercial and activity-oriented businesses,” Brewbaker wrote in the report.

The lagoon’s brackish water circulates naturally through porous rock below but would be enhanced by pumping ground water into the lagoon from a new well to refresh the lagoon four times a day, Saito Tam said.
