This route was simply stunning...the views of the ocean against the black mountains, or red mountains- simply stunning. The problem is that the two lane road suddenly turns into... read more

I drove this road on Feb 12 2017 and all I can say is the views are amazing , absolutely stunning. Driving through the little town half way through (can't remember the name of it ) is like a movie scene of a sleepy town where time has never touched. However be WARNED the road at points is enough to... More

I have to agree with the other reviewers advising NOT to be scared away from taking this drive. It is not inherently dangerous as long as you drive with the same common sense I hope most drivers use. In a mid-sized SUV, I made the trip clockwise and because of all the warnings and scary stories never intended to go... More

Not much I can add that others haven't already said. We took the route out of ignorance driving from Wailuku to the blowhole. Surprise! If you want to travel an insanely beautiful coastal goat trail masquerading as a highway, this is the road for you. Blind one lane hairpin turns with a several hundred foot drop to the ocean. It...

This route was simply stunning...the views of the ocean against the black mountains, or red mountains- simply stunning. The problem is that the two lane road suddenly turns into a one lane road with only a tiny sign that say " narrow road for 8 miles". We thought narrow meant that it would still be two lanes.....NOPE! We were driving... More

We made this drive today and thoroughly enjoyed it. We'd almost been put off making the trip after reading reviews on here and we're so glad we didn't. Perhaps Americans have different ideas as to what a 'scary drive' entails, but most confident drivers who live in Europe really shouldn't be put off by the comments some have made. I've... More

We found this drive to be more interesting than the more famous Highway to Hana. Take your time and enjoy all the fantastic views and interesting stops, like Julia's Best Banana Bread and the blowhole. Ask for a plastic knife with your banana bread so that you can enjoy it at a picnic site of your choosing - many scenic... More

I have driven some tight roads before but this was an experience I won't forget. There are quite a few parts of the road with enough room for one car on it. Hopefully another car doesn't show up at the same time. I took the road later in the afternoon which seemed to work better. (less traffic). I did it... More

Went for a leisurely drive on this beautiful highway. Set out from Kihei at about 8:30AM on a Wednesday and was back eating lunch in Kihei by 12:30PM. While this drive is certainly not quite as scenic as the famous Road to Hana it would certainly qualify for my "must do" list for Maui activities. Make a point to stop... More

There is about 20 miles between state highway sections of double-lane road, 13 miles of which is one-way. On most of the one-way road there are wide spots that can be used to allow car passage but you need to look and plan ahead. There are several stretches that are true one-way with not places to pull out. We found... More

We started our morning off great, we loaded up the rental car and drove around the right side of the island on Hwy 30 (4 lane) and it was beautiful. Taking our time seeing the sites we continued over to a great beach at Kekaa Point. My family (wire and little boy) played in the water, picnic, relaxed had a... More
