Introducing Maʻalaea

Wind defines Maʻalaea. Prevailing trade winds sweep from the north, funneling down between the two great rises of Haleakalā and the West Maui Mountains straight at Maʻalaea Bay. It’s no coincidence that Maui’s first windmill farm marches up the slopes here. By midday you’ll need to hold on to your hat.
