North Maui Beach Park

H. A. Baldwin Park, a tribute to Harry A. Baldwin, serves as one of Maui's most famous beach parks on the windward side. This delightful community of beachgoers appreciates this setting with fields for the many amenities like a soccer and softball field,  several pavilions and barbecue grills, and more. Families and surfers enjoy Baldwin's long, sandy beach and magnificent surf breaks. 


Overview of H. A. Baldwin Park

Baldwin Beach is a stunning spot for windsurfing and surfing. Turquoise waters, white sands, and lush trees make this beach unique, and you can often see sea turtles in the water. The beach is within walking distance of Paia town; head to the beach before or after visiting the town's restaurants and shops. This beach park is also close to Paia Bay if you can stop there.

This is a family beach popular with the locals in Paia, so try to steer clear on the weekends. Families and friends local to the area gather together for some legendary Maui beach parties.
