What an amazing day on the road as it seems like you are in a rain forest with lush green trees and plants. Beautiful flowers and several waterfalls. If you want you could easily eat your way down the road as there are fruit stands...More

We didn’t stop a lot and it is still an all day event. Ideally, rent a convertible and go on a sunny day. The road is one lane many times including bridges. Nothing of note to see along the way (waterfalls are grossly overrated), but...More

A long drive but all the best sights of Maui are here. This is the real Hawaii. Highly suggested to have an audio tour guide CD or app otherwise sights and hiking trails will be missed. Lots of snack places along the route. A full...More

Really fun drive, lots of great places to stop along the way. Move over for locals or faster drivers, then you can take the road at your own pace.

I did this drive a number of years ago without stops and then again a week ago but this time stopped along the way. It is very winding with many one lane sections even along blind curves so be sure to drive very carefully. It...More

At least 20 blind-curves where the already narrow 2-lane road narrows down to one lane for the duration of the blind-curve makes this the most dangerous drive that I have ever attempted. Took all the fun out of the visit. Also takes almost 2-hours each...More

My rating reflects the long day in the car. The scenery on the north road was something out of the jurassic period and for that i should give it a 5. We were leaving from the west side of the island and we definitely left...More

Road to Hana is a must. You can go on an organised tour or you can do what we did and hire a car and do the drive yourself. There are plenty of stops along the way where you can stop for snacks including fresh...More

You are high above the water most of the way, on a narrow road that winds quite a bit. And, as I recall, there were plenty of guardrails where needed. Most of the time, you have something on either side, usually trees or... More
