Wailupe Beach Park is a small neighborhood park in east Honolulu, located in Aina Haina.The beach is very narrow and the water looks brown and murky. It's not a good beach for swimming because the nearshore ocean bottom is too shallow and there is a coral reef.
The beach park is mainly frequented by fishermen and local residents who come here for a picnic. It is easily accessible since it is located along Kalanianaole Highway. Some surfers also enter the ocean here to get to the surf spots Wailupe, Kim's, Suicides and Bones offshore.
Even though it's a small park and water activities (except for fishing, surfing and kayaking) are not really possible, restrooms, showers and picnic tables are available.
The adjacent Wailupe Peninsula is man-made. In the early 20th century, a fishpond was located here. In the 1930s, the company Hawaiian Dredging filled it up with coral and rocks, which came from building the adjacent boat channel. The peninsula is now a residential community.
