Drove it today May 1st. Was in great shape and we both really enjoyed it! Left from Kaanapali around 10 am (which is Hwy30) stopped at the Nakalele Blowhole and the carried on south down ( Hwy 340) to Paie by 2 pm with lots of stops. Some single track and lots of blind corners, but just be careful. Its... More

A more dangerous version of Pacific Coast Highway. I drove with my kids late /afternoon /dusk. Like Hotel Californis . words might not be quite right, "Might sight got blurry and light grew dim". Nice sunset! Recommend middle of the day! Kind of creepy driving thru the boulder /volcanic rocks at the end. My kid were real young and it... More

Hwy 30 is a MUST if you love scenic drives. Unlike the dangerous 340 road, this road is smooth, paved and safe. It is curvy, and there are one-lane bridges to cross, but it is well marked and very safe. There are any pullovers and views overlooking gorgeous bays and beaches. On a clear, sunny day, this road is a... More

I'm glad I took the advice of others that had attempted this trip in a rental car. We went by tour bus (6 people total) and left the hazardous driving to them so that we could enjoy the fabulous scenery, remote little cafe's and shops, and the wonderful pull-offs along the way. Very early start from Lahaina and it's an... More

Amazing drive around the north side of west Maui. Crazy twisty road with lots of one lane bridges and single lane road so leave yourself plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and experience. Plan on stopping often for amazing coastal views and to pick up some banana bread.

Driving on Hwy 30 is completely safe, as long as you are careful and take your time around the turns. While Hwy 30 ends before Nakalele Blowhole (and turns into Hwy 340), the entire road up until the Blowhole is smoothly paved with clear yellow lines. The coastline is beautiful and there are plenty of scenic overlooks. Beware of falling... More

This drive is beautiful. Lots of twists and turns, and very narrow at times but there are turn outs. Just start your trip so you are driving along the mountain side and be cautious. It's a beautiful drive.

The views along this drive are outstanding although drivers need to be cautious for rock falls on the road! We stopped in several locations and saw whales breaching and diving down showing their tails. We weren't sure how far to go knowing the road condition became poor - maybe naïve but we expected a sign warning us the conditions would... More

We just completed this drive and drove it from East to West or counterclockwise. The weather was great . The road is in good condition and paved all the way . However there are some narrow single lane stretches with blind corners and caution must be used. Most folks were very courteous and safety conscious when meeting them on the... More
