Some of the best surfing in the world can be done on Maui’s North Shore, and that includes wind surfing, tow surfing, and kitesurfing. The trade winds are very consistent throughout the year, keeping this part of Maui cool and breezy with regular light showers that sustain the lush tropical rainforest and rich pastureland of Haiku. North Maui homes boast a generally lower housing density than most other parts of the island, and are often set on plenty of land with a good deal of privacy.
There’s always a buzz of activity in historic Paia town, which has undergone several transformations since its founding back in the sugar cane plantation days of 1880.
