Paia Maui from the air PAIA MAUI HAWAII - 96779       See the North Shore Maui Map

Here we go again on another interisland trip, this time we're flying from Maui to the Big Island. This picture was taken from the window of our Aloha Airlines flight on a typical sunny day. Not bad considering it's taken through the plexiglass.  The expanses of green are sugar cane fields which cover a good portion of the slopes of Haleakala, Maui's famous dormant volcano. Maui and Kauai are the last of the Hawaiian islands to still grow sugar cane, and Paia was historically a sugar plantation town.

You can see that Paia is a small town with most of the development along the shoreline in what was historically Lower Paia. There are properties for sale in Paia, oceanfront homes, fairway homes, family homes, and commercial. Starter homes are priced in the $400,000's and up. Many houses in Paia are within walking distance to the shops and restaurants, and sandy beaches too. There are vacation condos in Paia and Spreckelsville as well.  It's a nice little community that is only about 15 minutes from our airport and main cities of Kahului and WailukuPaia Youth and Cultural Center is a wonderful resource for the local kids, with the beach and skate park, their own restaurant and radio show.

Paia really appeals to visitors who are looking for a different kind of tourist experience than the resorts have to offer. This north shore town is where surfers, windsurfers and kiteboarders congregate due to the excellent ocean conditions for their sports. For a small town, there is a lot going on.  Paia is the town where I hang my Real Estate license, at Jim Sanders Realty. Be sure to inquire about the local market if you're looking to buy a home here.

This is the windward side of the island, meaning that we enjoy plenty of fresh tradewinds on an average day.  Those tradewinds bring rainshowers that keep things green and lush, usually in the wee hours.  It's that special combination of wind and waves that makes this such a popular place on Maui.  The windsurfing center of the world is right here at Ho'okipa Beach, just a mile out of town.  Let me know if you have any questions about this unique locality.  Aloha and thanks for visiting Paia.

Great photo Georgina,  I can almost see the windsurfers out in the water.  I remember seeing what seemed like hundreds of wind surfers when we flew out of Maui.

Ah, I loved Paia when I was there.  Beautiful Pictures.  Make sure to check out the Cliff's Edge Bed and Breakfast! A nice place to stay if you are in the area.

Hi Kelly - Door of Faith Rd has some wonderful vacation rentals.  It's a shame that they probably won't be able to continue operating without a permit.
