Kaupo Beach Park is a gem of a beach. Located on Oahu’s southeastern shore, this pawsome beach is a nice spot to sit back and relax with your furry friend. In the Hawaiian language, Kaupo means “night landing.” The beach is named after an old fishing village that used to be in the area. Locals also call this beach Baby Makapu'u, Kumu Cove and Cockroach Bay. No matter what you call it, this beach is a great place to visit with your pooch!
This beach isn’t necessarily the largest in the area.
In fact, it’s on the smaller side. But, when the tide is out, you will find a
nice patch of surf that’s long enough to take a mellow stroll with your
pupster. Canine visitors are welcome to walk anywhere beneath the high tide
line, which is normally identified by washed up seaweed. As you mosey along
the surf with your pup, keep a close eye out for Portuguese Man-O-War. These
beautiful sea creatures are translucent so they can be hard to see. If you do
see one, admire it from a far so you and your pooch can avoid being stung.
Since the beach isn’t very big and the ocean floor is rocky, this isn’t a pupular swimming beach. However, it is a favorite snorkeling and scuba diving destination. Local diving companies bring their groups here to explore the sea. If your pup is begging to get in the water, look for a sandy spot for them to wade in or chase the waves. Kaupo Beach Park is also a pawsome place to watch the sunset. As your pup gazes out into the ocean they will see Kaohika'ipu and Manana Islands. Remember to always have a clean up bag handy so you can pick up after your pup. And don’t forget the water.
No bones about it, your doggo will love this
