Welcome to Haʻiku
Haʻiku is a lot like old Paʻia, before tourism took hold. Both have their roots in sugarcane – Maui’s first 12 acres of the sweet stuff were planted in Haʻiku 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 also a haunt of pro surfers, who’ve helped rejuvenate the town.
Nestled in greenery, this is a low-key place to stay, with many excellent accommodations and restaurants for its size. To get an early start on the Road To Hana, consider spending the night here.
