Sunset Beach

Pūpūkea is a community and census-designated place (CDP) in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu, City & County of Honolulu, Hawaii, United States. In Hawaiian, pūpūkea means "white shell". As of the 2010 Census, the CDP had a population of 4,551. The Koolauloa District ends at Waimea Bay, with the Waialua District extending south and westward.Pūpūkea is a popular area on Oahu's North Shore for living and for visiting. The best known surfing sites of Velzyland, Sunset (at Sunset Beach Park), Kammieland, Pūpūkea, Ehukai, Pipeline and lesser breaks are arrayed off this shore. Popular diving and snorkeling areas known as Three Tables and Sharks Cove are located at Pūpūkea Beach Park. At the southwest end of Pūpūkea is Waimea Bay, with one of the most popular beaches on the island forming the shore at Waimea Beach Park.Popular residential areas here include the beach lots at Sunset Beach and the uplands of Pūpūkea. As the properties in this area were subdivided in the 1950s and 60s and classified then as country, the lots in the uplands were all measured out in 1 acre or greater parcels. The biggest drawback to living in this part of the island, however, is the considerable driving distance of 37 miles (60 km) to Honolulu.The U.S. postal code for Pūpūkea and the communities of Waialee, Sunset Beach, Lihilani, Waimea, and Kawailoa is 96712.
