Pāʻia, Maui, Hawaii
View Original Description
Pāʻia is on the northern coast of the island of Maui and is home to several restaurants, art galleries, surf shops and other tourist-oriented businesses. One business, Charley's, is frequented by Willie Nelson when he visits the island. The eponymous "Fish Market" at Pāʻia's main intersection is moderately well known throughout the island for its Mexican and Hawaiian food.
Paia it’s only about a 20 minute drive to the other side of the island, cute town for shopping and a beach near by. This is on the side of the island where the surfers and wind surfers go (Ho'okipa Beach is the famous beach on this side). For a fancy dinner on this side, head to Mamas Fish House (it expensive but romantic, make sure to get a reservation). For a more casual dinner head to the Paia Fish Market right in town, the food is amazing!
Pāʻia is the last town on the Hāna highway when heading eastbound towards Hāna.
Paia is located close to many internationally known windsurfing spots including Ho'okipa and Spreckelsville. It is therefore sometimes called 'The World Capital of Windsurfing'.
