MUST DO

Just BE careful, so much traffic and AMAZING views! For a special trip, take the south road all the way around!

We read so much in the guidebooks about the drive to Hana that we set aside a day to do just that. It was nice, but not the awesome, amazing drive that we read about. The road is so twisted that the driver has little opportunity to enjoy the view. When there is a view, it is mostly of trees... More

We took a tour over to Hana, it was a full day but definitely worth it, I can't imagine driving it on our own. If you are in Maui it is something you should take the time for and say "you did it". Not sure I need to do it again but definitely once in a lifetime. The black rock... More

There are many things to do and see on Maui and this is certainly one of them. The scenery is exceptional and there are plenty of places to stop and explore, with several nice trails along the way. The road is winding but paved and well marked, so not particularly difficult. Continuing on past Hana is supposedly frowned on by... More

The Hana Highway and Haleakala Crater (at sunrise) are universally mentioned as the must see natural attractions on the island of Maui. This drive was the highlight of our trip ... and well worth a day's excursion. Five of five stars. A quick note about the drive ... DO NOT let reviewer comments about the treacherous, winding road deter you... More

This is something you have to do when you come to Maui. That said, I wouldn't do it twice. It made for the most stressful day of an otherwise stress-free vacation. I did the driving. This road has amazing views but driving required a level of focus that is unreasonable to expect. To do the 45 miles requires at least... More

You have heard, time and again, from EVERYONE, that the road to Hana is the most beautiful in the world. 39 miles and it takes 3-4 hours to drive....and that's without stopping, which you MUST do, to see the numerous waterfalls and breath the passion-fruit-laced air. For a lead foot like me, it's HARD to drive slowly and frustrating at... More

Head out early! Allow plenty of time, this is a long slow drive. This narrow winding road offers incredible views. I will never forget the beauty offered on this historic highway.

This has to be one of the worst roads in the USA. To call it curvy doesn't do it justice. To call it narrow and winding minimizes just how narrow and winding it is. The bad part is that many of the drivers do not obey the "yield to oncoming traffic" signs. More than once on my two trips up... More

My wife and I bought a CD from Boss Frogs that tells you all the interesting places along the way, as well as some history of Maui. It made the trip a lot more enjoyable and was a big help in letting us know where to go on the trip. The bamboo forest on the hike up to the waterfall... More
