Looking for a unique beach town with shopping and superb restaurants? Visit Paia town, located a little over an hour away from Kapalua. Known as the most eccentric place on Maui, everything worth seeing can be found by wandering up and down Hana Highway and Baldwin Avenue. Complimentary parking is just west of the town on Hana Highway.
This is the place to people-watch while dining at Flatbread or the Fish Market. Shopping includes Nuage Bleu, Wings, and Alice in Hula Land. For beach or recreation, Baldwin Beach Park is great for body boarding and kite flying, while Ho’okipa Beach Park is excellent for surfing and windsurfing.
