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

First time the wife and I visit Maui and we happen to have a rental car for daytime road trips. I told her that we should try to drive the coast of the island - I suggested this with absolutely no research and after the fact that Alamo pointed to two different points on the map that I should not...

If you try to drive this road headed towards Lahaina, you will be on the ocean side lane of the road. If you drive this road headed away from Lahaina, you will be on the mountain side of the road. You don't want to be on the ocean side, its a long way down, there are no guardrails, you may... More

I personally thought this drive was better than the road to Hana. The views were spectacular! However, you definitely want a full tank of gas and you don't want to drive this at night. This road scared me a lot more than the Road to Hana...I was more concerned with rocks falling than going over the edge as we were... More

If you are leary of driving on narrow 1 lane roads, with turnouts, have someone else drive on this stretch. For those who have lived in the PNW and driven logging roads in the mountains, this drive is like that, but only paved. This road is less traveled than the well-known Hana Highway, but what it lacks in notoriety, it... More

This is a great alternative to driving through the central valley if you're heading back to the West side, but allow plenty of time and be prepared for some white-knuckle moments. The road is windy and single-lane in many places, so take it easy and sound your horn before blind corners. You may need to back up, and there are... More
