Pā‘ia

Where Maui - - Where Now -

Once a plan­ta­tion town cen­tered on Hawai­ian Com­mer­cial & Sugar Com­pany, to­day Pā‘ia is one of the top wind­surf­ing des­ti­na­tions in the world. In the win­ter months, the wa­ters of nearby Ho‘okipa Beach Park can be found dot­ted with sail­board­ers per­form­ing com­plex aerial ma­neu­vers. Not sur­pris­ingly, Pā‘ia boasts at least a dozen surf shops where you can buy sports gear and a wide range of board ac­ces­sories. The area is lined with hip­piechic cafés, juice bars and ve­gan restau­rants, plus shops sport­ing hemp­made prod­ucts, East In­dian im­ports and funky art gal­leries.
