Village has two parts: Upper Nahiku closer to the road and Lower Nahiku near the ocean shore.

Nahiku is usually reached by Nahiku Road coming down from the Hana Road to Opuhano Point on Honolulunui Bay.

The wooden bridge to the Nahiku ocean shore within the last half mile of the road was closed to motor vehicles in 2014.[1]

Some Nahiku residents have been upset at tourist traffic after the area started appearing in Maui, Hawaii tourism guide books and web sites.[2]
