Paia Hawaii

Welcome to Paia Hawaii in Maui County (population 2,499).


Paia Hawaii is one of the vibrant communities that make up the north shore of Maui.

It's a funky little tourist town which has managed to retain a lot of it's character from the sugar plantation days. Recreational activities include dining, hiking, fishing, sailing, snorkeling, swimming, surfing, scuba diving, shopping and more. Golfers have many excellent courses to choose from such as The Dunes at Maui Lani, which was previously voted one of the best new courses in America.

We parked our rental Jeep behind the storefronts and walked around to look at the shops. We ended up having lunch at the Paia Fish Market after we found some fun shirts at one of the stores.
