Ok, this drive has seriously stunning views. Unlike anything I've ever seen. That being said, if you choose to drive this route it may very well be the last thing you ever see because it is legit treacherous and terrifying after you pass the blowhole. And unnerving a bit before. But coming from Kaanapali beach- DO NOT drive past the blowhole unless you are all good with knowing it could be your last drive ever. And that is not an exaggeration. Think one, narrow lane sandwiched between a cliff and an ocean, no where to back up if you meet an oncoming vehicle. I have never been scared easily and have traveled quite a bit and I was white knuckling this one with my two kids in the back seat. Hard pass. Never, ever again.

Visiting in early January and thought we’d take a “little drive” around the north end of the island. As the driver (and not super confident) I definitely would not have done this drive if I’d read the reviews. Had no idea what we were in for. Headed out on the route clockwise. The scenery is gorgeous, and we enjoyed the walk to Honolau Bay through the rain forest (a must see!). As we continued on, more great views and I told my friends I wished we were driving counter-clockwise to better appreciate the dramatic scenery. That wish dissolved instantly when we found ourselves on the one-lane road. Wow! Extremely narrow w only occasional pullouts with just enough room for an oncoming car to squeeze past. Thank god we were on the inside, hugging the hillside, or I would have def turned around. We took it slow, looked several curves ahead, where possible, to see oncoming cars. Being early Jan, there were not as many as other reviewers experienced. I’m sure the few locals we encountered got a laugh out of my terrified expression as they zipped by. We were very happy to have done the drive once it was done, but not sure I would do it again. It is as others have described—stunning and frightening.

We consider ourselves to be pretty adventurous, but we also like to enjoy ourselves. We thought the road from Kapalua up to the Blowhole was fairly tricky with narrow lanes and blind curves, but if you drive cautiously and slowly, it was enjoyable and worth it! However, we came upon a large group on bikes taking up the road after a blind curve, and then we were passed on another blind curve by some idiots in a convertible, and that’s when we decided we would turn around after the blowhole and not risk the much narrower road past it. On our excursion to the blowhole, we pulled over many times to take in the absolutely beautiful, wild and and rugged views. Definitely stop at Honolua Bay Lookout and do the short access trail to the bay for a gorgeous walk through the tall forest, wandering chickens and a rugged beach.

We had time to kill going from our condo in kahana to the airport for our overnight flight. I drove part of highway during our stay and it was great so I didn’t think going all the way around would be too bad. The first part is smooth and beautiful, so I didn’t even research more. Big mistake! Road to Hana is a cake walk compared to this drive. Lots of hair pin turns, and several stretches with a single, small lane on the edge of a cliff!!! Only do this if you are truly adventurous and a good driver. Sorry no photos, I was white knuckling the steering wheel. I think it was beautiful but I was so focused on the road I couldn’t look.

Worth risking your life for scenery that can not be equaled. Scenic beauty with heart pounding heights, cliffs and endless ocean views. Take time to stop at every site seeing opportunity to take in all the beautiful views. But also use extreme caution for everyone’s safety. Not for the faint of heart or drivers that are not very confident. If you’re capable, better views than the Road to Hana in my opinion. Be safe

Counterclockwise starting in Wailuku is probably the best route. Your energy and focus is better in the early part of this route. It’ll be needed to safely navigate some of the narrower sections and the blind corners. The road gets progressively better and is routine after Kapalua.
So many beautiful spots to stop and enjoy the views. Shortly after Karen Lei’s gallery you can admire the blowhole from up high.

Beautiful drive and lots to stop and see along the road. Very windy and risky road to drove on. We ended up turning around when it got to the one lane road. Different view of a beautiful island.

Views of the coastline along Maui’s northern fringe can be seen by driving along Route 30. The road is full of twists and turns - challenging to say the least, but take it slow, drive with ‘aloha’ and take in the spectacular views. There are many little juice shacks, snack spots and viewing turnouts along the way. Slowly make your way from Kapalua to Kahului (or vice versa) and enjoy your adventure.

We had a fine ride on ths loop. Missed the fountain spring. Don't you. Available native eats.. Great scenery along the way. Birds and animals running across the road, and they can be seen on the sides of the road, tool. Be sure to go if you're on the island.
