Hookipa Beach Park

Hana Hwy.
Paia, Maui, HI, 96779, United States

Hookipa Beach Park on the north shore of Maui, near the former plantation town of Paia, is famous worldwide for its windsurfing and kitesurfing, and is home to the Aloha Classic competition. The white-sand beach is surrounded by rocky shoreline and high bluffs that allow visitors to watch the acrobatic flips and stunts of the surfers from a viewing deck; during calmer weather, a trail leads from the bluffs to the the tidepools and lava rock arches. The parking lots offers block party-like entertainment as well. Amenities include a lifeguard, showers, and bathrooms.

Insider Tip:

Try the mahi mahi crusted with macadamian nuts and stuffed with lobster, crab, and onion at nearby Mama's Fish House.
