Amazing a must-see adventure
Agt 2021
Hana Road is a must see trip on Maui. Most of the beautiful places on the island are located on the north more extreme side of the island. Lava tubes, tropical jungles, waterfalls, breathtaking views of the ocean from a high bank mostly everything can be found along this road. Please do some research before going, because it would be a pity to miss some of those gems. The difficulty of the road to driving is somewhat exaggerated. That is not a difficult trip for a confident driver. Instead it is a kind of driving entertaining. However, there are some risks which should not be underestimated even for the most experienced drivers. First of all a lot of blind turns on a single lane road where you better honk a horn to warn you are there. Local people who got used to the road may drive faster and more aggressively and extra caution would not hurt. After Hana there are parts of not asphalted road which remind a washing board which would be challenging for your suspension. Another risk which i had never thought of, until saw it with my own eyes how a big tree fell 50 feet in front of my car just right on the road and completely blocked it. I don't really know how to avoid falling trees or stones, it is very rare, but just be advised it happens. Another potential caveat, where possible try to stay on touristic paths. There are some places where local people want privacy or are annoyed by crowds of tourists and might not be very welcome to tourists. I didn't experience it myself fortunately, but heard about some occasional tensions. The road is very slow, taking also into account so many wonderful places along the road you would like to visit, it is better to count on 2 days. The first day from central island to Hana and the second day from Hana further around the island up to Kula and back to Kahului. Hana has many very nice and romantic small hotels to stay overnight, even though they tend to be expensive and may be fully booked. If you are not returning too late, you may end the second day watching amazing sun set from the top of Haleakala mountain, at the height of 3 km or 10023 feet. The turn to Haleakala is located somewhere near Kula just at the very end of the entire trip. If you are going to drive yourself be sure your companions would like a long trip, full of sharp turns, sometimes serpentines with a vertical wall on one side and precipice on the other. Sometimes it may seem worse and less enjoyable to passengers, than to a driver. Overall road to Hana with all attractions available only from there is probably the most beautiful place on the island. It is a must see. Just be a little more careful than it may seem necessary and be prepared to spend a lot of time.

Yes, there are scenic falls and views along the way, plus the beaches in Hana are picturesque, but the road is horrendous, very narrow, constant curves, potholes, mud, rocks, one way construction areas with no traffic control, impatient locals and oversize tour vans.
Are we having fun yet? There is a reason it’s called the
“Divorce Road”.
Not worth the torture, if you HAVE to see Hana, you can fly in and hire someone to take you to the beaches.
If you STILL just have to do the drive, come in and leave through the Kula side, the bad stuff is shorter to get to the town.
Trust me on this one.

I was there on business, so I drove from Kahului to Hana on one day and back two days later. It was absolutely breathtaking. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy some of the attractions along the way. My favorite was the Garden of Eden Arboretum. If you are renting a vehicle, don't gett anything larger than an Equinox.. The roads are narrow, and there are plenty of short one-lane stretches that require full attention. Do your research - either identify the stops you wnat to make ahead of time or use one of the apps whike you are driving. Most of the attractions are not well signe, so an observant passenger is very helpful.

We took maui tours on our trip to hana, Mike our tour guide was fantastic, he picked us up at our condo early and off we went with a van full of people. the group we had was awesome as well. We all got along great and had a fantastic day together.with breakfast at a golf club resturant and lunch in hana provided by maui tours. Mike took us to alot of places along the road for pictures and for some to swim, he answered a million questions we had and we talked and laughed all day. i have never had such a wonderful experience with people i did not know before this day. my wife and i had the best trip we have ever had with mike and these people. Mike was very attentive to everyone their needs . He was fantastic and we would recommend him to anyone wanting to go to Hana

We drove to Hana on the normal route and wanted to drive back the long way, but we were dissuaded by several individuals. We did the long drive back and we were not disappointed. The scenery was incredible and changed dramatically after Hana.

Last week, my wife and I took a trip to Hana and continued around Maui through Kula and back to Kahului. We did the drive in our SUV but I am an avid motorcycle rider and want to give my advice to other riders. Here are my observations and advice:
• Prior to trip, open Google Maps in street view at various points along the journey to get a good representation of the type of riding you will encounter.
• If you able to listen to a road to Hana app while riding, I highly recommend doing it. There are several highly rated apps for purchase. We chose the GyPSyguide.com app and were extremely satisfied. If you can’t listen to an app, then I suggest you do a little homework using Maui Revealed or other resource prior to leaving to determine where you want to stop and what you want to see.
• Leave early to beat the heavy traffic. It will make your trip more enjoyable. Paia by sunrise or soon thereafter would be great.
• Most motorcyclists enjoy twisty roads with nice sweeping turns that can be taken in the 35 – 60 mph range. The road to Hana is more like speeds in the 20 -25 mph range with extremely tight turns in the 5-15 mph range. Great ride for scenery but probably not the most enjoyable riding you ever do. In my opinion, the most ideal motorcycle for the trip would be a mid-sized adventure bike or mid-sized scooter.
• The only passing is when someone is kind enough to pull over.
• Plan on rain at some point of your journey. A light weight rain suit would be advisable.
• As you have probably heard, the road to Hana is all about the journey and not Hana itself. This statement is very true. Driving to Hana and back or continuing around the island is a very long day but very doable if you pace yourself a little and don’t stop at every attraction. If you plan on doing some extended hiking or explore every attraction, then you should make arrangements to stay overnight along the route.
• You can choose to turn around at Hana, continue on 10 miles to the Seven Sacred Pools and turn around or continue around the island through Kula and back to Kahului. We enjoyed the drive all the way around the island. As you probably heard, the road gets bad. It is real bad (gravel and broken pavement) for about 10 miles from about Kukui’Ula Gulch to about the Nu’u Refuge. Any vehicle (including rentals) will make it fine but the road is rough. I would not recommend this journey for any large road bike or scooter. I would highly recommend it for an adventure bike.
• Starting at Manuwainui Gulch, you will encounter some great motorcycle riding road. Good pavement and endless sweeping turns with little traffic. Great stuff.
• Hope this helps!

I did this drive by myself years ago with my daughters and were able to swim and jump into the 7 sacred pools-it took all day and was a great adventure but things have changed. This time my husband and I did a private tour but the national park is not open to small operators since they now have to have expensive licenses so unless you go by yourself in car and pay fee or go with one of the tour operators that have access you can’t even go down to see the pools. Too many injuries and lawsuits is why they’ve closed it to swimming because tourists didn’t abide by the warning signs then sue the state-typical litigious people have ruined it. Lots of quaint places to stop along the way and local foody places . On the way back towards mamas fish house there is a great beach that the turtles come up onto by the dozens and sometimes the hundreds-can’t remember name of it but it starts with an H and means hospitality in Hawaiian so look it up.

Everybody talked about this awesome drive. So will tell something which I felt was important for me. Number one, I purchased GypsyGuide Maui and that was the best 10$ I spent there. With this app I was able to visit every major and minor points, parking spots, best restaurant etc etc. Another thing I noticed that anyone driving Minivan or Full Size SUVs were blocking the road and slowing everybody down as it is not easy to drive big cars in that small road. So my suggestion is to get midsize suv. I didn’t rent 4 wheel drive SUV and I never felt for 4 wheel drive except once. And 4 wheel drive may be helpful. But I will never rent a Jeep either because of small road.

Road is not very wide but 2 lane with many sharp curves and almost all the bridges are one lane. Probably more than 50 bridges.

Not related but I will never drive again on highway 380 past Nakale Blowhole to Airport. One of the most terrible road.

The Road to Hana have 620 curves and 59 bridges, and a lot of beautiful scenery. Every turn is something new, something truly amazing, when you are on this road, don’t rush, enjoy the scenic drive, it’s absolutely amazing. Hana Drive is a MUST while visiting Maui. If you are not experience driver, you can use some of the local agencies and get a tour and not stress yourself. The road is pretty difficult.

We did a day trip to Hana from Lahaina - approximately 80 miles. It was quite an adventure. The drive time is approximately 8 hours, round trip. Although the distance isn't far, there are many 1-lane bridges, narrow paths in the road, twists and turns and most important, beautiful views. There are numerous hidden beaches and waterfalls as well as gorgeous views right from the road. I suggest that you share the driving so that everyone can enjoy the beauty. This is not a drive for the novice. The actual time needed for the drive is up to you. If you stop to enjoy all the views, it will take longer than 8 hours round trip. I suggest that if you do this as a day trip that you start early so that your return trip is done before it gets dark and make sure to have a full tank of gas! Also, have a map showing all of the waterfalls, beaches and other interesting sites to see. There are restrooms and restaurants along the way. If you don't want to drive it yourself, you can take an organized tour. Either way, it's a must see for Maui.
