Drive to mama's fish house from wailea

We are staying at the Fairmont in wailea starting next week. I think the drive to mama's fish is about 35 minute drive. We have reservations for lunch at 2:00. We want to make a day out of it and explore that part of Maui. Any suggestions as to what towns should stop into and what are the must see locations on the way. We are not going to do any activities that day, just sightseeing.

You could start early and "do" some of UpCountry, see top questions on right side of main Maui forum for a good list of what's Up Country. Before or After lunch at Mama's drive the short distant to Ho'okipa Beach to watch the windsurfers. Paia also has some interesting shops to explore after lunch.

If you left at 8 and drove to the winery http://www.mauiwine.com/directions--map/ stopping in Keokea at Grandma's for a cup of coffee(grown locally and roasted fresh) and morning pastry. If you want breakfast there leave at 7:30. Then continue to the winery. ( 1 1/2 hr to Keokea from Wailea) then drive the 6 miles to the winery, enjoy the beautiful grounds.

Turn around and head back to Makawao, enjoy the unique shops, watch the clock and leave 30 minutes to get to Mama's. Ho'okipa either before or after depending on how long shopping Makawao took.

Enjoy Paia after lunch.. time will depend on how many of the tiny shops you go into.. only a few blocks of shops.

So hard to gauge time for others.. this is just a ball park figure. My sis and I stopped at the Lavender Farm and spent several hours there after the winery but skipped the shops in Makawao.

If you want to drive straight through... leave an hour early... its all valet parking, so you pull up and hand over the keys... and whatever time arrive early, it's well worth hanging out on the grounds outside. Shady, beautiful view, lots of places to sit and relax... time will fly by.
