There are many things to do on this beautiful island but don't waste your time on the Road to Hana. The bushes and trees along this road blocked the views of the coastline. We were there in May and there was very little water running...More

Road to Hana was amazing. Make sure to leave early, and stop when you can. This trip took us 15 hours. The road is a little scary, but we'll worth it, just take your time.

Driving the road to Hana is a must do when staying on Maui. The scenery is second to none and the narow road with all the winding and sharp corners culminated with 60+ single lane bridges is enough to get the adrenaline flowing. The banna...More

Hello - is the Road to Hana one lane in each direction or just one lane from start to finish? We heard that Mile 39 is currently closed and wanted to see if there was an option to turn back around before then. Thanks!

I visited Maui on February 2017. There are section of the road with one lane only but manageable if you have a Jeep or other terrain type vehicle. I cannot comment about mile 39.
I'm planning a trip to Maui at the end of July. Our flight from the mainland arrives at 12:45pm on a Friday. Would it be feasible to make the drive to Hana that afternoon, straight from the airport? My tentative plan is to stay one night in Hana and then head for the west side for the remainder of our stay the next day (after exploring the Hana area a little bit of course). I'm not sure about making the drive immediately after the long flight from the mainland though. Thanks for the input!

I would advise against it. It's about a couple of hours drive and since you're tired from the flight, you'll probably just zoom by all the attractions trying to get to your lodging. The Road to Hana is the journey itself and... More

What a shame that you stopped at mile marker 15. Had you made it to #16.5, you would have found a free arboretum to walk into. Every plant is labled for a half mile paved path back to a quaint little farm and picnic table. Just 1/8 mile farther is the turn off to Keane Point, complete with Auntie's Banana Flip stand, restrooms, and the biggest breakers you have ever seen splashing over the black basalt breakwater boulders. The wind and waves make this a SPECIAL place, and the convenient point to turn around and head back. So sorry you didn't do better research about what the road has to offer!

Actually Kirk, we had done research, even had a GPS enabled app guiding us. The arboretum at 16.5 was jammed with buses and cars - no parking for a half mile in either direction. Plus, as movie buffs, we wanted to see "the... More
