Drove out th Hana on a showery day. Lucky to have sun most of the way out. Took 2 1/2 hours each way, even with waiting 15 minutes going out while they finished clearing a landslide. Expected curves, waterfalls, one lane bridges. Also expected much more traffic. Went about 9:30 on a Friday, returned about 2:30, and rarely had to... More

We drove the road to Hana in a rental van. It was a long and winding road with beautiful scenery everywhere. Take a tour if you don't enjoy a full day of driving. We left Wailea at 7am and returned at 8pm. There are 617 turns and many one lane stretches. We had to wait at one bend in the... More

We (a couple) visited the road to Hana on a Tuesday. We started early in the morning at around 8:00 am from Kahana. We did the whole round trip and needed about 10h. Positive: + good road conditions on the "official" part + nice scenery, ocean view and nature + good road signs incl. points of interest Negative: - road... More

We just completed the Road to Hana on one of the rainiest and windiest days. Not as much fun as driving in the Summer when the conditions are more ideal. Every waterfall was raging - but it's not the "pretty" type of waterfall that you want in a photo. It's the muddy type. There were still plenty of beautiful ocean... More

From Kahului to Hana is 52 miles, but it takes a LONG time to drive the winding road with its views and all the hairpin turns! We had read that there are 620 curves and 59 bridges on this portion of the road – and we believe it! And most, if not all, of the bridges are one-lane, so meeting... More

Although it's only about 52 miles, the drive takes about three hours ONE WAY because of all the switchbacks, turns and one lane areas. The driver kinda loses out on this scenic drive because they have to concentrate on driving. Stop to view waterfalls, the rainbow eucalyptus trees and the overlooks. Still, lots of fun and then you can say... More

After hearing that the road is not for the faint of heart and all that. I decided to drive it. Have no regrets whatsoever. The two lane road contains many twisting, turning, & one lane bridges which as a result makes it a long drive due to slower speed limits. It took me about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs nonstop... More

Unlike 80% of the visitors we decided to drive the reverse side taking Piilani Highway and continue Rt 31. We had a little over the half tank of gas when we started and when we ended at Costco in Kahului we still had 50 miles of gas in the reserve. We hit the road at 8am since the rain in... More

We drove to Hana via the southern route and loved it. The beginning of the road is spectacularly scenic on a good day and in excellent condition. Only at the end does it get rough for a relatively short while. A good vehicle is recommended. The northern route on the other hand (the one reviewed here) was for me an... More

Paradise is less than this drive. Do it and explore many small and cute attractions throughout the day.
