Huelo, Maui

Huelo is a small community located along the Road to Hana (Hana Highway). It is considered part of Haiku. Located away from the population centers of Maui, such as Wailuku and Kahului, this little-known community has been described as “the little Hawaiian village forgotten by time.” Elevated at 480 feet (146 m) above sea level, Huelo offers a tranquil and laid-back island atmosphere and lush surroundings.

Activities in Huelo include horseback riding and hiking along the Waikamoi Nature Trail. Located nearby are the black pebble beach of Honomanu Bay and Ho'okipa Beach, known as the windsurfing capital of the world. At the Door of Faith Road stands the Kaulanapueo Church, a historical Protestant Church built in 1853 using stone and coral. It features a New England architecture.

Huelo used to be a sugar plantation community, but has shifted to cattle farming when the sugar industry in Hawaii ended. There are a few multi-million dollar oceanfront properties, vacation rentals and small farms growing tropical fruits, herbs and vegetables.

My favorite stop for 100% natural,and/or organic fruit drink, or fresh coconut water from the coconut. Tropical forest and an ocean and native plant setting at 480 feet above shore. stop at the curve in the road where a small smoothie stand sits. Enjoy the smell and scenery, as well as ask about how to get to the church building made of coral and stone, since it's nearby.
