Cape Chaplino is a cape pointing eastward in the Bering Sea in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug of the Russian Federation.

This headland is located in an area of narrow beach ridges and swales which form a roughly triangular lagoon.

Cape Chaplino was the site of a Yupik village Ungazik (Chaplino; Unisak on USCGS charts) which gave its name to the Chaplinski dialect of the Siberian Yupik language. The cape is shown as "Indian Point" on a USCGS chart from 1897.
