We drove to the blowhole and had not researched the road past it to Wailuku, and took it as it was shorter on the map to get back to where we were staying. This is a very narrow, winding and up and down road that...More

A very scenic route as long as you aren't the driver. Over seven miles is less than 2 lanes and the far western end is a very narrow one lane. You would be a fool to drive it in anything larger than a compact car....More

This is truly a don't miss out drive. If you are even a bit squeamish about sketchy roads and heights close your eyes but don't pass this one up. You will definitely want to drive this route "clockwise" from Lahaina to Wailuku as you will...More

Beautiful scenic drive, kind of long, winding and narrow roads. Some areas are one lane so be on the lookout of other vehicles coming towards you.

Instead of the long-winding road to Hana, take the short version around the west part of the island. Where ever you start on the west part of the island I recommend going clockwise around the island. Take time, stop and take some pictures. Take a...More

In mid December 2017 the road was closed for construction between mile marker 15 and 16. The drive from Lahaina (clockwise) to the blow hole area was gorgeous and relatively easy. Think of rural country roads not urban super highways and exercise care - you'll...More

We drove our rental car counter clockwise ending in Lahaina. What a drive it was! The views are absolutely breathtaking. Yes, the road is one lane and steep in places, but there is ample places to pull over and let cars pass. We had the...More

Everything you hear about West Maui Loop is true. It is spectacularly gorgeous and there are some sketchy sections of road. However, it is easy to fully enjoy and appreciate this part of the island without driving the bad part if you don't want to...More
