Tripping: Paia, Maui

September 9, 2016 by Ariana | 0 Comments


This summer, we returned to one of our favorite places in the world — the island of Maui in Hawaii.  With each visit, we try to make a new discovery, whether it’s a new activity, a new sight, or a new place to eat.  This visit was filled with new discoveries.  We observed hundreds of melon-head whales from the deck of our Trilogy Boat Tour, watched the sunset from over 10,000 feet up at Haleakala National Park, and ate our way through the south side of the island in Wailea and Kihei.  One highlight was a day trip to the small surfing town of Paia.  Described by some as the Haight-Ashbury of Hawaii, Paia is lined with colorful stores and restaurants.  Though it wasn’t quite as sleepy as we had hoped — the streets were lined with tourists — we found it quite charming and worth the thirty-minute drive.  My favorite spots were these chic home stores and the best fish tacos ever.

Nuage Bleu — 76 Hana Highway.  Loads of cuteness in one store.  Good finds for women, kids and the home.  And chic souvenirs too.

Pearl — 71 Baldwin Avenue.  Pearl is a phenomenal home store, effortlessly styled with a very California feel.  They offer a fantastic selection of block printed linens, as well as other accessories.

Paia Fish Market — 100 Baldwin Avenue.  Take your pick between seven types of fish or go for the traditional opa-mahi mix, these grilled fish tacos come served over the best cole slaw and your choice of Cajun rice, fries or a mix of both.  So delicious we ate them two days in a row (they recently opened a second location in Kihei).
