Kaupo Beach Park
is on the southeastern shore of the island. The name means “night landing” and is associated to the fishing village that was once here. This beach also goes by the names of Baby Makapu’u, Kuma Cove and Cockroach Bay.
This park is better suited for snorkeling and diving and the beat area is near the pier. The bottom is very rocky and this makes for difficult entry to the water. There are several small pools here that do have sandy bottoms, but these are more suited for children.
The Park is right across the street from Sealife Park, so you might want to combine the day with trip to both locations. From the shore you can see both Rabbit Island and Black Rock Island. Both are bird sanctuaries, and a permit is required to land here.
Pohaku Pa’akiki rock can be seen at low tide. Ancient legend says that this rock is a monument to remind Hawaiians of the agreement that was made between Ancient Hawaiians and the guardian shark, that there would be no shark attacks here.
