Town of Paia


The little town of Paia in Maui is known for a lot of things. It’s the last main town before the start of the Road to Hana, it has the very popular Paia Fish Market, some adorable shops, the highly regarded Mama’s Fish House, “Jaws” the very intense surf spot, and Ho’okipa Beach, aka Turtle Beach.

We drove out here and only saw four (a little disappointed), but they were absolutely massive.
