This is a great way to see some of the island. You should drive yourself, get a cd or the app and it will tell you where to stop and visit! It will take all day so start early in morning around sun up. Take some drinks and snacks.

One of the adventures on Maui is the road to Hana. This could be an all-day journey. Take a cooler with lots of food and drink and some good walking shoes. Take the map that tells you the different sights at different miles. Stop often.

Hana Road is always a bit of a challenge depending on the day and the locals. Rule of thumb locals have right of way everytime. Don't even try and play hard ball they have to go to and from this road and do not need rubber necking tourists halt them so be polite and pull over.

We bought the R2H CD (which you can download onto your phone too) before driving the Road. It was extremely helpful and informative! This road is very narrow and a bit stressful to drive IMHO, but it was worth it! If you rent a jeep, that would be best, especially if it has been raining. The locals hate you, so... More

Fabulous views I must confess I was a little nervous but we really enjoyed the adventure there are some crazy drivers but my husband managed it without much difficulty and we come from a country that drives normally on the opposite side of the road, there are lots and lots of one ways and curves but the views are well...

Be prepared for a workout with the steering wheel! More importantly watch out for the people who can't drive. We stopped a few times for pictures and also to buy some fresh banana bread from a road side stand. The road after Hana to the 7 pools park is even more challenging as there was seldom a center line marking.... More

We started from Lahaina around 9:30 on a beautiful morning, and made several stops along the way - Ho'okipa Beach, Garden of Eden, Nahiku Market, Wai'anapanapa State Park, and Hamoa Beach. But our favorite stop hands down was the Garden - an absolute MUST SEE!! It is absolutely gorgeous, providing views you can't get anywhere else, and it also provides... More

Well the road goes right through the rain forest which is lovely and beautiful too experience. Just too many cars, even though we left pretty early. Do the circle, keep on going after you have passed Hana aaaall the way back. The unpaved road is a real adventure & the change of colours is stunning!!!

Beautiful, beautiful landscape! Very beautiful waterfalls! DO NOT DRIVE, BOOK A TOUR! Over 600 curves, road is extremely narrow. Our tour guide was Ed with Polynesian, he was great! He knew the history, where to stop, and how to drive the road. There's very little in Hana, it's all about the ride there and back, which is totally worth it
