Kaupo Beach Park is a long narrow stretch of beach located
at the eastern extremity of Ko'olaupoko District. It is backed by Kalanianiole
Highway. It is well utilized by fishermen, swimmers, and surfers, and has no
dangerous currents, coral heads, or other water hazards. The marine waters are
designated as a Class AA Zone.
A steady stream of runoff flows into these waters at the east end of the beach park. This water comes from the aquaculture farms of the Oceanic Institute, and flood rains from the mountains. For this reason these waters should be monitored routinely.
