Ha'iku is a small village in the northern part of Maui, approximately 14 miles (22.5 km) east of Kahului. Though Ha'iku is located about 2 miles (3.2 km) inland, a few beaches are nearby, including popular Ho'okipa Beach, also known as the windsurfing capital of the world.
Ha'iku was once a thriving pineapple plantation with two canneries. However, the town experienced a decline in commercial activity when the main refinery transferred to Kahului. After a few years, people started returning and inhabit the place. Only then the commercial life in Ha'iku resumed. Today, this rustic community has eateries, shops and cafés.
