I drove from Lahaina clockwise around on this road on a Sunday. There was surprisingly quite a bit of traffic coming the opposite direction. Many people were hitting the beaches and it was quite a pretty drive. Most of the way is a one lane...More

Beautiful scenic drive, kind of long, winding and narrow roads. Some areas are one lane so be on the lookout of other vehicles coming towards you.

Instead of the long-winding road to Hana, take the short version around the west part of the island. Where ever you start on the west part of the island I recommend going clockwise around the island. Take time, stop and take some pictures. Take a...More

This is a great use of your rental car. There are various overlooks and wide spots in the road to see sights you just can't find anywhere else. But if you are looking to hike down to the shoe bring real shoes. Steep slopes, slippery...More

We were already planning on driving this route but had no idea what that would entail. There is a portion that is one lane, so be prepared for that and make sure you are respectful of other drivers. There are some great stops along the...More
