We rented a car for our week on Maui, so we drove the Road to Hana ourselves. It's a wonderful drive and we were not overwhelmed by tourist traffic. Lots of bridges, turns, waterfalls, lookouts, and history. We stopped a lot and drove off the road to some interesting spots. The journey is all day. We did not explore south... More

With zigs and zags that travel across 56 one-lane bridges and snake around more than 617 curves, fragrant ginger flowers scenting the air and spectacular cliffs plunging into the sea, this scenic drive was truly a heart-pumping adventure. It's a must when on Maui! My tip is to make a day out of this trip, enjoy a relaxed pace on... More

Take your time driving to Hana and stay in Hana if you can. That way there is no rush to get back. While there are many turns in the road there are many places to see. Recommend driving in the daylight due to many parts of the road not having lines/markers.

A great way to see much of the island. We drove (did not use a tour company). Left at about 9:30 am and got back after 6. Downloaded an app that was played as we drove. It was like having a tour guide in our car. Worth taking the time!

We did a self drive of the Road to Hana.We downloaded the Shaka Guide and it was fabulous! They give you information on the road and details on all the sights to stop at along the way. Paia is theso official starting point for the Road to Hana. This is an all day activity. Note: The roads are quite windy... More

Lots of stops to make, get a good directory, we missed a couple of stops. We also went all the way around, the impassable road is no problem plus going back the way we came up did not seem like any fun at all. We went really early so traffic was no problem but I can see where it may... More

A must see and do when in Maui....Your Maui experience isn't complete until you've been on the Road to Hana!! And I say "beyond", keep going, don't turn around at Hana, but be prepared for a long and winding and bumpy road, white-knuckle experience, but worth it! My advice though, let an experienced tour company do the driving for your... More

We went by car but thankfully traveled really early. We had downloaded the Shaka Maui app and paid for the guide that is supposed to work offline- it didn't so don't waste your money. Fortunately I had written down the mile markers for most of the "attractions". Unfortunately the attractions aren't that attractive and there are few worthwhile views -... More

The drive is a little gruelling with the turns and one lane bridges. You do have to prepare ie: a full tank of gas, drinks etc as there a few facilities along the way. Prepare to be patient and take your time and you will see some of the best scenery Maui has to offer. Hana is small with one... More

The Road to Hana is a once in a lifetime opportunity...it is a lengthy drive due to the nature of the road and the views along the way...budget a whole day to enjoy the trip properly...pack food and drink and be sure the car is full of gas...many magnificent views to stop and enjoy along the way...just don't be in...
