Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Paia:

"Hawaii is fantastic! We honeymooned on Kona, and vacationed in Maui last year. Before your trip, if you can grab the Hawaii Revealed books, they are fantastic at lining out the places to stop in each area of the islands. For Kona, I would recommend (like others) to stay in the Kailua Kona area, and potentially the Hilo area if you want to divide up longer island drives. We stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, and although nice, it was too far from everything. Some things we liked: If you like coffee, take a coffee tour - we stopped at Greenwell Farms Inc for a tour. We hiked out to the Green Sand Beach Mahana Beach, which is one of two in the world. For this, I would also recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Take a tour of the Kona Brewing Co & Brewpub, and grab a pizza there too! And of course, HawaiĘ»i Volcanoes National Park Maui was our favorite, and we really enjoyed the Road to Hana; it was a long day from Lahaina, but we set out at 6:30am, and the waterfalls, hikes, and scenery were stunning! If you think you want to attempt this drive, the Road to Hana Gypsy Driving Tour app is amazing. It tells you the best stops, and gives some history along the way. We went to the Pools at Ohe'o (HIGHLY recommend) then turned around and headed back). You do not need a 4 wheel drive for this excursion. We stayed at The Royal Lahaina Resort, in an Ocean View tower room, and I highly recommend it. It is not a huge resort, but that is more our speed. Another great excursion was with Sea Maui!"  See More

"Paia is a small pretty town we visited but i don't know if i recommend staying there since its a bit of a drive to get around."  See More

"Paia is a sleepy, hippy town, and if your go up to Kapalua is more golf courses, large homes, big resorts like The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua."  See More

"How about a drive to Hana Hana, lunch in Paia, a drive through the upcountry area to the Maui's Winery, a goat cheese farm ( Surfing Goat Dairy), a lavender farm ( Ali'i Kula Lavender), biking down the volcano, hiking into the volcano, Maui Ocean Center, walking around Lahaina on a Friday eve (art night)."  See More
