Paia:: the modern hippy community of Maui



By Andy Dubois

Paia is our city crush of Hawaii. Filled with quiet beaches, a laid-back vibe, and local boutiques, the small village serves as a modern hippy community. Known for its inventive feel, the small town is perfect for the surfers and yogis.

Start your day with a morning jogging sesh on Baldwin beach, followed by a smoothie or fresh pressed juice at Maka by Mana or Ku’au Store (my favourite). Grab your bikini, coconut oil and favourite essential oil to create your own natural sea-scrub on one of the numerous “hidden” beaches. Enjoy a conversation with the ocean and sun bathe for a while. If you’re in the mood for yoga, don’t be shy to use your towel as a yoga mat.

We recommend :: Find a cute place to stay on Airbnb. We stayed HERE or try Paia Inn– their breakfast game is on point !
