Debated on taking this drive but decided what the heck. I’m so happy I did, but remember this drive isn’t for edgy or casual drivers. Do not take this road if in a hurry! Relax and enjoy the scenery. If you can’t relax while driving...More

Our GPS took us on this as the supposed "fastest way" to the beach we had in mind. Maybe it was the fastest way to a heart attack. It took us TWO HOURS to drive the 20ish miles. I kept saying it had to get...More

We decided to try the “other way” back from the blow hole. There is no reason to drive this road. If I had a house along this road I’d have to live off the grid and be 100% self sustaining because I’d just never drive...More

Secret: This is the BEST side of the island by far! A lot of it has been repaved since we last drove on it, and an entire new section has been cleared and added in the Kahakuloa side. Don't be afraid by the WIMP DRIVERS...More

Seriously. Don't. Do. It. We were even driven by an experienced native to the area and I was scared for my life. Turning around at the blow hole would have saved 5 years I lost on my life from the stress that day. We had...More

Howdy! So basically we took this route by accident. Long story short, we went to go visit the Nakalele blowhole a little before sunset. We had to go back to Kihei, google maps showed it took an extra 12 mins "turning left" instead of "turning...More

This is the highway of near death experiences. Google provided no warning that we were about to embark on a one-lane, seat of your pants road. I should have turned around at first outside turn, when it was still two-lanes, and a local came flying...More

Terrifying. We had no idea that this stretch of highway had been dubbed "Death Highway." My brother and I, thought it would be a nice way to see the island as we travelled from Haleakalā National Park to Hana. It's incredibly gorgeous but you have...More

I'm glad I didn't read any reviews before I went there, because I might not have gone. But I'm so glad I did. It got me away from the hustle and bustle of Maui, and the road really wasn't that bad. Yes, you do have...More
