We had a great trip to Hana. The road is very tight. Tons of spots that are one way, so be prepared to stop. There are lots of small side trips, make sure to take some of them. There are only a couple restrooms so...More

This was one of my favorite parts of our week in Maui. We went to the National Park at the end to hike first then drove back stopping along the way. The park was beautiful but unfortunately the sacred pools were closed due to the...More

Done this drive a few times. There's nothing really special about it save for a few waterfalls that are nice to see. Do it once.

We decided to drive there instead of joining the tour, and we downloaded the app called GyPSy Guide before we went. I think that was the wisest thing we did in this trip (in fact, we missed the guide after this trip)! The app was...More

We chose to drive ourselves to Hana early in the morning. We downloaded the Shaka Guide app. It was beyond it's 7 dollar worth. The app made our trip amazingly awesome. It told us where to go and cautioned us about our time spent. I...More

Allow plenty of time, start at 7am maximum to have time to wander a bit along the road. We start the tour at 9am (at Paia), and it was kind of too late. A lot of insight on the road. An advice: Take an App...More

I didn't find the trip as bad for car sickness as a lot of people said. Take it slow, stop lots and you'll do great. Definitely worth seeing.

Drove ourselves, had a group of 5, 2 shared the driving. The Shaka guide is spot on for exactly where to stop but if alone a tour may be better option.
