Fodor's Expert Review Hookipa Beach

Paia Beach Fodor's Choice
Hookipa Beach, Hookipa Beach Park, Maui, Hawaii, USA

To see some of the world's finest windsurfers, hit this beach along the Hana Highway. It's also one of Maui's hottest surfing spots, with waves that can reach 20 feet. Hookipa is not a good swimming beach, nor the place to learn windsurfing, but it's great for hanging out and watching the pros. There are picnic tables and grills. Bust out your telephoto lens at the cliffside lookout to capture the aerial acrobatics of board sailors and kiteboarders. Amenities: lifeguard; parking (no fee); showers; toilets. Best for: surfing; windsurfing.
