There’s no doubt about it: The upcountry Maui town of Makawao is a must-see for visitors. It’s surrounded by beautiful ranchland, filled to the brim with chic boutiques, too-cool-for-school cafes and delectable breakfast, brunch and lunch spots, all the while sporting an unassuming but charming paniolo appeal. And although it’s small—you can probably visit every nook and cranny in half a day—the town has a lot of history (there’s even a museum dedicated to the town’s storied past), and its friendly and approachable residents and shop owners will make it tough to leave. If you’re looking to plan out your visit, here are five Makawao shops and activities to add to your itinerary.
