Introducing Haʻiku

In some ways this little town is what Paʻia was like before the tourists arrived. Like Paʻia, Haʻiku has its roots in sugarcane – Maui’s first 12 acres of the sweet stuff were planted here in 1869, and the village once had both a sugar mill and pineapple canneries. Thanks to its affordability and proximity to Hoʻokipa Beach, it’s a haunt of pro surfers who have rejuvenated the town. Today the old cannery buildings are once again the heart of the community, housing a yoga studio, several surfboard shops and the kind of eateries that make a detour fun.
