Makawao is a small town in upcountry Maui with many art galleries (photos, jewelry, sculpture, carvings, art prints, clothing...) and several restaurants. It is considered a paniolo town (Hawaiian cowboy)...

Cute and quirky mountain town! Winding drive up from Kahului leaves you in a boutique lined street with some interesting finds. Hot tip: It's actually COLD up there in the evening shade, so bring a windbreaker at least.

We made a side trip on our way back from Hana to visit Makawao as we read it offered locally created art, etc. from the area. Well, that was true but the people were less than welcoming. The only store where we were greeted and...More
Most restaurants and stores and galleries are open seven days a week. It's fun little town. Great Mexican at Polli's. Great drinks and food also at Casa Nova.
