HA Baldwin Beach Park - Pa'ia Kanaha Maui

Bodyboarders and bodysurfers take to the waves at HA Baldwin Beach Park about a mile west of Pa’ia, at the 6-mile marker. The wide sandy beach drops off quickly and when the shore break is big unsuspecting swimmers can get slammed soundly.

A favorite with local families, HA Beach Park is not surprisingly one of the most popular. In addition, many local community events are held here. Ongoing recovery activities include: Vehicle barriers erected around public parking areas to control vehicle traffic access to beach, dune restoration, red fox control, and beach mouse population surveys.


This park offers great activities like wind surfing and kite surfing full services, you must try this park if your area of Maui is cloudy.

Couple walking along HA Baldwin Beach Park - Pa'ia Kanaha MauiIt has a brown stone sand and good beach combing. It’s a State Park, and is very popular – there are lots of amenities and activities, such as camping, kayaking, and fishing. The whole island is surrounded with beautiful beaches. Hana Hou has great Kalua pig, and the roadside taco stand in the Ha’iku Marketplace parking lot has the best tacos on the whole island. Really, I consider myself a taco expert and this place is absolutely amazing.

Don’t be caught off guard, the waves in there can get pretty mean sometimes and the currents are strong enough to fold the flat ocean in peculiar ways. Boats have right of way in the marked channels, so get out of their way.

The rock and reef hazards also should be avoided and remember to wear shoes in the beach as the colored sands may get hot and it will be painful for the tourists. HA Baldwin Beach Park and Hamoa Beach which are not protected by reefs is more prone to promoting accidents and going for big surf during high tides is termed to be risky and the safest time to venture into surfing is during the summer.

We loved the sunsets and the chance to go watch the water crash against the rocks. Also the windsurfers make it a great place to complete a vacation.


The park has a large grassy picnic area with tables, grills, a pavilion and a protected swimming cove. A white sand beach fronts the park. This popular park has restrooms, showers, a pavilion, picnic tables and grills. A busy place on the weekends that still leaves plenty of empty beach for strolling or sunning. Many are easily accessible beach parks with lifeguards, picnic facilities and restrooms. Others are undeveloped, pristine, “secret spots” off the beaten path.

    One of my favoriet beaches on the island. I actually was able to ride the waves using myself as a surfboard. I never would have guessed that a town as small as Paia would be so awesome.
