Makawao is the heart of Maui's ranching and paniolo (cowboy) country. It's an outpost for artists and fashionistas, has upscale galleries and boutiques, and many consider it to offer some of the best shopping on Maui.
You won't find any stoplights here, but you will find the oldest bakery on Maui—in business for over a century—as well as colorful, curious chickens who roam freely across the road.
When you visit us in Makawao, we highly suggest you spend some time exploring the locally-owned shops, and chat with artists we're proud to call our neighbors in this little town.
