The Town

Since the 1970s, Paia Town has gotten plenty of recognition as the laid back, surfer hippie town of Maui. While most people breeze by on their early morning drive to explore the Road to Hana, we recommend taking the time to discover one of Hawaii's coolest small towns.


Although Paia Town consists of only one main road, there's enough people watching to make it worth your time. Grab a cup of Maui coffee and fresh baked scone at Paia Bay Coffee Shop before taking a walk to Baldwin Beach Park to enjoy breakfast and a view as the clouds roll in over the West Maui Mountains.


For those interested in shopping, Paia offers a great assortment of Maui made products, including jewelry, swimwear, clothing and household accessories. Kuau Store (808-579-8844), located a mile past Paia Town, has a wonderful selection of organic, local food and beverage choices and offers ready-made picnic lunches, perfect for enjoying a day at the beach or Road to Hana lunch on-the-go. Browse work from some of Maui's most talented artists at one of the many art galleries, including Maui Hands, Cesere Brothers, Maui Crafts Guild, and Makai Gallery.


If it's ono grinds you're after, don't miss the crepes and live music happy hour at the charming Cafe Des Amis, duck fajitas at Cafe Mambo or delicious banh mi at Hana Provisions. Head to Charley's Restaurant & Saloon, a favorite spot for Paia homeowner Willie Nelson, to catch late night live music and cocktails.


For the more athletically adventurous, try a fusion yoga class at the newest Paia favorite, Infusion Yoga, or head up the road to Ho'okipa Beach Park for world famous windsurfing.


Want to spend a few days here? Check out Nalu Kai Lodge (808-385-4344), a charming boutique hotel with unique Hawaiiana atmosphere only a 3 minute walk to the beautiful beach at Paia Bay.

Whatever your interests, everyone seems to love Maui's coolest little city.


Just don't feed the hippies.
