At the intersection of Hana Highway and Baldwin Avenue, Paia has eclectic boutiques that supply everything from high fashion to hemp-oil candles. Some of Maui's best shops for surf trunks, Brazilian bikinis, and other beachwear are here. Restaurants provide excellent people-watching and an array of dining and takeout options from flatbread to fresh fish. The abundance is helpful because
Paia is the last place to snack before the pilgrimage to Hana and the first stop for the famished on the return trip.
