A whisp of Makawao's bygone cowboy days still mingles with hip Upcountry boutiques, restaurants, delis, galleries, health food store, small general store, medicinal herb shoppe, and much, much more....

Park your car and easily walk around town to discover unusual items, tastes and scents.
On Wednesdays visit the Makawao Farmer's Market for fresh, organic, local produce, flowers, crafts and much more! And right across the street is The Gecko Trading Company for a most delightful array of unique stuffaguffalas...

Makawao is the beginning of Upcountry, Maui.... Although just 10 or so minutes from the North Shore's best beaches, the air is definitely lighter and cooler, and just a few more minutes drive uphill will take you to rolling hills of eucalyptus, pine, and jacaranda trees.

The magnificent views of Maui's valley laying between the 2 volcanoes, her surrounding ocean and 3 sister islands will take your breath away as you wind your way up the mountain.

A great launching place from which to visit the awe inspiring Haleakala Crater.
