Kaupō / Kau-pō / Place Names of Hawaiʻi,

  • Quadrangle, village, old district, homesteads, trail, and gap, East Maui.
  • A peninsula and once a fishing village northwest of Makapuʻu Point, Oʻahu, now the site of a beach park and of Sea Life Park. The point of land was formed by lava which flowed to the sea from a vent about 200 feet up the cliffside; this was perhaps the most recent of the secondary eruptions on Oʻahu. (For. Sel. 275; Macdonald and Abbott 377–378.) See Koʻonāpou.

Literally, landing [of canoes] at night.
