Makawao

Away from the beaches and sprawling resorts of Maui sits the town of Makawao. This Upcountry community is located on the midslopes of Mount Haleakala and is known for rustic charm, small town atmosphere and its paniolos (Hawaiian coyboys.)

A day in Makawao is stepping into a simpler

time, with small shops and diners still operated by the families who started them decades later. Eclectic boutiques, art galleries and even wellness centers await those visiting this historic enclave.

Where there are cattle ranches there are bound to be rodeos and Makawao hosts a Fourth of July event with parade, contests and other festivities.
