We drove this road from Wailuku to Lahaina. Like the road from Hana to Kaupo, it's carved into the cliff face, very curvy and often 1 lane. Unlike the road to Kaupo, it's paved the entire way and there are numerous pull-offs for cars to go into in order to avoid head-on collisions with oncoming cars. Visibility on the road... More

What an incredible drive. we were in a nissan sentra and besides a few little traffic jams in which you had to get close to the bush in order to pass, it was a fantastic drive. not for people scared of heights or narrow roads with tight/blind turns. made me a better driver after having succeeded at driving this road....

First thing first, it is a must do awesome drive. there a streets in NY narrower than this road and people are far less polite there. Locals are very welcoming and if you behave on the road they respect you back. Second, unlike few drivers we saw ahead of us holding the foot on the brake, you do drive on... More

This trip made the road to Hana seem like it was the kiddie park. I loved this one more, but you literally are praying that anyone else on the road is paying attention and not speeding. We saw one lane road signs and thought "oh wow that's wider than it's been". This road cannot accommodate a slew of people like... More

I was told this would be a beautiful but white-knuckle drive, and I was told I should drive from west to east (clockwise). This was really great advice, as you will be on the inside lane rather than on cliff's edge. Driving north from Lahaina, after passing Kapalua, the road becomes a little more narrow and a lot more curvy.... More

We took this trip without realizing the danger and once you start it is hard to turn around. It is mostly a one-lane road and there is no way to turn around. The driver certainly cannot enjoy the views and the passenger has to help look for oncoming traffic so not much enjoyment there. Would not do it again and... More

We didn't plan to do this drive, but just kept on going past Honolua Bay. I didn't look at the map too closely & to be honest it didn't look to bad on paper! However, we had such fun, but it was not for the faint hearted. If you aren't comfortable with sheer drops, hair pin bends and many, many... More

This road is well worth traveling, but requires some patience as some loops are so narrow you have to wait for oncoming traffic to clear - and you can't always see around the mountain sides to know if traffic is coming. One of the cars has to back up, and it is usually the Kahului side drivers that give right... More

Admittedly, some of this drive is on single track roads with no guard rails, with sheer drops down the cliffs. This is why some people have rated this attraction as terrible. However if you take your time, drive carefully and do it during the day, not when it is dark, then it is a beautiful drive, with stunning scenery and... More

Beautiful views but really wondered what would happen if we met on coming traffic. At times I thought I was in Ireland or Scotland with the lush, green, rolling hills. Lovely little town and the best art gallery at the top of the hill. Very picturesque.
