plan on an ALL DAY trip when to take the road to Hana. There are many and I mean many places to stop, pull over to take 1000's of photos. The road is about 50 miles to Hana and it is very well paved. This is my 4th trip to Hana in 20 years and it went from a one... More

Amazingly even though there were hundreds of switchbacks and many single lane bridges, this road really isn't that bad. Been on many worse ones on the mountains or even in Sedona. Really a fun drive.

Truly beautiful to have driven this winding highway. Don't be in a hurry and remember to stop and smell the roses - ie: enjoy the many amazing views and the waterfalls. Go early to avoid getting backed up by traffic and don't be afraid to continue on rather than turning around - just consult with the locals in Hana to... More

Plan to spend the night in Hana!! I expected to get car sick and possibly not enjoy the ride. I did take a sea sickness pill as we began and never felt sick. I had a great driver (friend) and we stopped all along the way, eating our way to Hana. We also took some turn offs just to see... More

There are just so many beautiful sights along Hana Highway. We did a good thing by not trying to do it all in one day. We just did the highlights and it took us all day to reach Hana from Kahului. Highly recommended to do proper research and mark GPS coordinates as it is very easy to miss a lot... More

We started our drive in Laihana at 7.30am and didn't return until after 8pm. From the start of the Road to Hana it will take you a good couple hours to reach Hana, and that's not factoring in stops along the way. It is difficult to park along the majority of the road and it pretty much causes a back... More

Gorgeous drive. Takes at least half a day. Lots of spots to stop at. Black sand beach, Seven Falls, bamboo forest, Hana beach. Wonderful all around. Bring food and water for the car. Use the bathroom before the drive. Leave with a full tank of gas.

I was so excited to drive the road to Hana! The Rain forests and ocean were stunning. We were warned of the switchbacks and one lane bridges ahead of time. That wasn't the problem. The problem is the bus tours and the large amounts of people on the road at the same time. The bus tours are such a pain.... More
