Paia vacation rentals

Paia is a pop of color and culture in Maui

Paia, a bright beach town with a hippie-flare, is tucked away in the northern shores of Maui. Shops here sell unique beachwear and art galleries showcase impressive contemporary art. Paia beaches provide exquisite scenery and plenty of family-friendly activities. Some travelers spend an afternoon exploring the town by driving down the Road to Hana, but others settle in for a blissful week on the beaches in this charming community. For groups and families looking for a more offbeat and authentic Hawaiian vacation, Paia vacation rentals are perfect.

Explore Paia by land and by sea

Paia is home to several stunning beaches, including “Baby Beach,” which has a protected lagoon, perfect for kids who love the water. In contrast to the gentle shores of Baby Beach, Ho’okipia Beach—the windsurfing capital of the world—is a bit more adventurous. When you stay at one of the Paia vacation rentals, you can pick a different beach for each day; just pack a picnic with ingredients from the natural food store and hit the road. Be sure to inquire about the best snorkeling near Paia as well. In the unlikely event of a rainy day, explore the many eccentric and quaint shops.

Take in culture and nature in Paia

Many artists have found a home in Paia, with its colorful buildings and laid-back atmosphere. Over the years, Paia has become a destination for contemporary art collectors from around the globe. Browse a contemporary Paia art gallery, and maybe find a bit of the island to take home with you, or visit the Maui Craft Guild, an art cooperative that functions both as a store and as an unofficial local art museum. If you have young children that want to be outdoors, make sure to take a family trip to Ho’okipia to see the sea turtles napping on the warm sand.

Paia is a year-round destination

The island of Maui remains relatively warm throughout the year. If you are looking for a mild, relaxing holiday, book one of the Paia vacation rentals for a week or 2 during the winter when the average temperature is 75 degrees. The summer tends to be slightly warmer but perfect for splashing in the salty water in the hottest hours of the day. Tropical storms are generally uncommon in Hawaii, although you have the best chance of avoiding the rain during the summer. Overall, the Paia weather forecast is almost always looking bright.

Paia, a gorgeous stop on the Road to Hana

Like the rest of the towns lining the steep Road to Hana, Paia boasts lush, green vegetation, and sugar cane grows in abundance, a relic from the Old Paia Sugar Mill. Paia sea turtles lounge on the beach, and mongooses scurry through the brush. With some luck, you just might see a humpback whale off the shore. For a small area, Paia has a diverse coastline, from the closed-in reef in Baby Beach to the incredible open waves of Ho’okipia.
