Looking for Pukalani Beaches? Pukalani is located up on the slope of the mountain at over one thousand feet of elevation so there are no beaches that can be found here. If you would like to go to the beach you can do so if you take a short drive down to the North Shore.
The beaches on Paia are quite nice. Baldwin Beach is a very long stretch of sand with an area known as Baby Beach on the far Western side that has a nice protective reef that protects the beach from waves and forms a nice lagoon kind of area. If you are into surfing the North Shore of Maui has some great surfing beaches. Hookipa and Paia Bay are some of the local favorites. However, be warned that the North Shore is not a good place to learn to surf. It is a location that only experts should go for surfing.
