Haiku Maui is located on the northshore just as you pass Paia Maui, an old plantation town. Haiku is known for lush green valley’s and gentle trade winds that keep days and nights cool. Not to long ago you would see pineapple trucks rolling down the roads, during the summer harvest, local kids would work in the fields to earn extra money for college, my son spent one summer working for a local family during pineapple summer harvest. I love the old Hawaiian songs telling stories of days gone by. Haiku still has that charm of old Hawaii.
Today things have changed, we still have the sugar cane in the fields as you drive past Hookipa Beach, and I love the drive up Haiku Rd pass the Baldwin Estate, an old plantation home that use to be owned by the Baldwin Family.
The northshore of Maui is also a gathering place for people that love enjoying the ocean in many different ways. Surfing and windsurfing are just a couple of the water sports people enjoy, along with morning walks on Baldwin Beach.
Haiku is also located in the center of the world for riding giant waves at Jaws. Big wave surfers fly into Maui to surf Jaws when the surf gets hugh.
