If you are interested in seeing some of Maui's authentic and varied beauty--and you are not just there to drink mai tais on the beach--then I would wholeheartedly recommend the Road to Hana. Let me tell you what you have to look forward to: verdant and fascinating rain forest, several worthwhile waterfalls, some botanical gardens (didn't go, so can't comment),... More

If you get car sick really think this through or medicate yourself. The drive is insane. From our hotel in Lahaina we were in the car for about 6-7 hours. I was not prepared for this at all. So be warned. If your hotel is more central you can take off an hour. The road is unforgiving. It's a nonstop... More

I was really looking forward to this drive as many visitors indicated it is very scenic. However, I was a bit disappointed. We were able to only go on a day that it was raining and if it is, the scenic areas are not very scenic. Also, the drive is a bit dangerous with rain as well. The road needs... More

Life is A Highway and the Road to Hana (and beyond) is more of the journey to get there than the destination. What a great metaphor and a beautiful journey. Gravol was a great help for us along the way. I reiterate other reviews, but I’ll leave you with three highlights: 1. Don’t miss the “Three Bears” Falls after the... More

This was a nice trip but I don't think we would go out of our way to recommend it to others. Some of the sights are very scenic and some are just OK. I never get motion sick but had to drive the majority of the time or I wouldn't have made it. The road is not only curvy but... More

Everything you read about this road is true!! We loved it and plan to do it again the next time in Maui. Do go slow as warned and pull over for the locals. Honk horns around some corners. A fantastic drive...

We left at 6:30 in the morning, drove the entire way around the island and were back by 3 p.m. including a stop for lunch and a short visit to LIndbergh's grave and several beaches.

I went to Maui twice and I took the road trip to Hana twice. It was totally different on the two occasions and both times totally worth doing it. The first time it was one of the rainiest days I have ever seen. There were not much other cars driving that road this day and you couldn´t access many of... More

I'm not a decent driver that I only drove 4k miles prior to the drive. But my hubby even couldn't drive so I have to settle! The drive shouldn't be tough to us coming from the less developed countries, since much worse roads lay in our countries. But you have to pay full attention, while take a little time to... More

If you're in Maui, you have to do the road to Hana. Make sure to take plenty of stops to take in the amazing views and waterfall paths just off the roadway.
