We made a 9 a.m start to avoid a lot of traffic. The road is narrow, super curvy, and sometimes one-lane. Scenery is beautiful, sometime breathtaking. Be sure to get good directions to the "Spout Hole" since it's not marked; island authorities think it's too...More

Probably the most excitement you can have for the cost of gas on the island. Makes the road to Hana look like the Trans Canada highway across Saskatchewan!! Hairpins, single lane, no room to meet an oncoming car, sharp drops, steep hills, you name it....More

What possessed us to take this drive, I may never know. But we woke up early one morning and headed North from our hotel in Kaanapali. Shortly past the Nakalele Blowhole drivers are greated with warning signs saying “Caution no shoulder next 9 miles,” and...More

Beautiful views - narrow road - lots of curves - changing landscape all mile long - takes some time to explore

This is a beautiful drive but IMO scarier than the road to hana. It has hairpin turns with pretty much a one way road the whole way. Be prepared for that. We did find a place to stop and climb down to tide pools. It...More
