In 1836 the village was the site of one of the last, if not the last, lynchings related to accusations of sorcery, when a widow Krystyna Ceynowa was killed by a mob after being accused of being a witch.[1]

In 1939 the village saw some fighting during the battle of Hel. The Germans captured it on 25 September, and around the same time, in its vicinity, Polish military engineers detonated torpedo warheads, temporarily transforming the Peninsula's far end into an island.[2][3]

Before 1 January 2015, Chałupy was part of the town of Władysławowo.[4]

Toward the last years of communist rule in Poland the locality became famous as the site of a government-legal nudist beach.[citation needed]
