This Little Beach Town In Hawaii Will Capture Your Heart

Just four miles from Kahalui on Maui’s famous Road to Hana is Paia, a small beach town big on charm. The town is not only known for its epic surfing and windsurfing waves, but is the epicenter of Maui’s north shore, and is full of artsy, bohemian vibes. While the adorable seaside town is gaining traction with tourists, it is still often seen as merely a spot to refuel, grab some food, and head out on the Hana Highway. But it is so much more than that, and you will never regret a day trip – or even a weekend getaway – to this perfect little town.
