Puka Puka, Paia

43 Hana Highway
Paia , Hawaii
Tel: 808 579 3080's insider take:

Housed in a historic plantation right as you drive into Paia Town, Puka Puka is a white-walled boutique, art gallery, and gathering place for locals looking to "talk story." Rare and vintage surfing and Polynesian-themed books, Maui-made T-shirts (the uniform in Hawaii), limited-edition high-top sneakers made with African batik fabric, and clothing from Maison Martin Margiela and Hussein Chalayan create what could be best described as Maui's answer to Paris's Colette. The upstairs is a more formal gallery with amazing ocean views and biannual Hawaii-centric exhibitions, such as retrospectives on artists from Maui's Rainbow Bridge movement in the '60s and '70s.—Cathay Che
