This is a great use of your rental car. There are various overlooks and wide spots in the road to see sights you just can't find anywhere else. But if you are looking to hike down to the shoe bring real shoes. Steep slopes, slippery...More

We were already planning on driving this route but had no idea what that would entail. There is a portion that is one lane, so be prepared for that and make sure you are respectful of other drivers. There are some great stops along the...More

We planned on driving around west Maui but didn't know it would be one of the trip highlights! I really recommend doing this! We used a tour guide book "Maui revealed" which was extremely helpful. We stopped at slaughterhouse beach, wonderfully located off the side...More

We did the circle drive directly from the airport in our rented SUV since we had to wait for our hotel room in Kihei to be ready. We drove anti clockwise and had a spectacular drive. My husband has been doing all the driving here...More

We drove this road today in a clockwise direction in our rental car and it was great. We did the road to Hana a few days ago and this one was much easier and way less busy. I must say that after reading other worrying...More

Every hair-raising turn is another spectacular view! There are glorious turnouts scattered along the way. When the road turns to one lane, they mean one lane. Be prepared to backup to a turnout to let on coming vehicles pass. If you are a timid driver,...More

It will take at least half a day... depending on how many times you will stop to explore paths on the bluffs and take pictures. And there is something to see behind every bend in the road. No 4X4 required. There are many little beaches...More

There is a lot of controversy over this trip, do it clockwise, or anticlockwise, 300+ ft drops with no guard rails, fantastic views, one lane roads, few places to pull over and let oncoming cars pass, you can't drive this with a rental car, and...More
