  • Cindy Collier 1 month ago

    Thank you friend for all of your AMAZING videos and tips! We are in Maui now.. We did Road to Hana yesterday😎 It was so fun we are doing it again and hitting more waterfalls🌴💦 Banana Bread and Coconut Glen’s icecream. The best way to experience the drive is in a convertible or a Jeep with top off 🤙🏼 #alohastoked

    Wow what an amazing video. Was it me or am I the only one that got a bit emotional and overwhelmed at how beautiful it is there?!? We’ll be there in 3 weeks. I can’t wait.

  • Orchid Heart 2 months ago

    I’ll be there next month! Can’t wait!😊

    One more tip, bring water shoes is you want to swim at Wai'anapanapa Black "sand" beach. It's more like black rock beach. Your feet will thank me.

  • Dennis Farrell 4 months ago

    I suggest the Shaka Maui app for first (and any) timers. It has a ton of useful tips. Some call it the road to hell, others the road to heaven. Me and my wife call it heaven!

    Wow!!! Great vid!

  • Tom Spurlock 6 months ago

    Nice tips, and drone video. I'm looking for mileage markers and descriptions for the things to stop and see. A rating from 1-10 of each attraction would be nice also to help prioritize the time for the day. Does anyone have something like that? Am I asking too much?

  • JB 86 6 months ago

    Nobody said pack cooler !

    That’s tip number #1

  • Barbara Defina 7 months ago

    This sad music doesn`t represent the aloha spirit well.......maybe only that the locals are sad that their land was stolen.......

    Barbara Defina feel free to submit a list of royalty free music you’d like to see on the channel and mahalo for watching!

  • Mgoldenboyz 7 months ago

    And dont fucking park on the road and act like you own the place.

  • Logan Callahan 7 months ago

    Absolutely stunning! Cant wait until our honeymoon to Maui!!!!

  • Alicia Annetta 9 months ago

    Agree even stay in Hana for one night so you have two whole days to do it and really take your time

  • Frank Smith 10 months ago

    Nice video. But man, why do people feel the need to put that AWFUL crappy music on their travel videos? I would seriously rather listen to fingernails on a chalkboard or gears grinding. Silence would work too.

  • M Hightower 10 months ago

    A true environmentalist could never be a tourist. 100,000 rental cars just spewing pollution but hey you can brag about your selfie.

  • Bill M 11 months ago

    HOLY MOLEY! HOLEY COW!
    Such a gorgeous video.
    Unparalleled!

  • Joe Nguyen 11 months ago

  • JakeRoyalTV 1 year ago

    My Maui flight is in less than 7 hours and I should be sleeping

  • Anastasia Rose 1 year ago

  • Norman Miller 1 year ago

    I thank you very much for the information. My wife and I are heading there soon and your video was very helpful and informative.

    Is it real hard to drive it versus taking a tour bus?

  • Juan Fuentes 1 year ago

    This song tho

  • Ty Campbell 1 year ago

    If you are a passenger in a car driving to Hana, you best have a strong stomach or some motion sickness medicine.

  • Kunihi Boeche 1 year ago

    Ok, this video is much better than the Red Sands video, good job bruddah.... except the sunscreen part. Sunscreen will soon be banned and nobody wants that in our streams and oceans. Mahalo👍🏼😎

  • Gordon Reiher 1 year ago

    Hint #1. Rent a Camaro convertible 2. Haul ass.
    But don't forget to stop at Coconut Glens (and give him a tip so he can finally buy an engine for his vw microbus) .

    Very well done video. Thank you so much for sharing this. And for the kind and caring tone that it takes toward the land and the culture of Maui.

  • Paul Cook 1 year ago

    Tip 8: Stay in Hana (or nearby). We stopped in Mack's Shack. Like paradise.

  • BananaJSSI 1 year ago

    Last time I drove that I got car sick. Love the scenery along the way, but I'll stick to less windy roads when I am there. Be back in a couple of days from now . Kihei is my favourite , much drier there

  • doubleAdoubleX 1 year ago

    Great footage in the video, though not all of it is from the drive itself. Check out video on my channel for a more first hand account of the drive.

  • Brenden Talks/Gaming 1 year ago

    I went on this during the summer we got in a wreck

    oh no!

  • Donald Barrett 1 year ago

    I love Maui, it's my second favorite destination in the world (Moorea, Tahiti - French Polynesia is #1. The one drive I will never take again is the Road to Hana. Way too scary even though it's beautiful. I've traveled in every state, never was as frightened as on the Hana Road. My advice to Visitors, stay in the Lahaina / Kaanapali Beach area. Best beach on the island!

  • Diego Arreola 1 year ago

    Love the melody! <3 and the video too of course! :)

  • Sudha Patel 1 year ago

    Nice Video, thanks. I am going to Maui in Oct. 4, 2017. First time going, so excited.

  • bel250 1 year ago

    We did this road to Hana trip today, once we arrived Hana, we ate lunch and continue driving around to the other side instead of turning around back to the same route, there was a part of the road that is a dry river bed for about 10 seconds on a 25 mph speed, then back to a black top road, we also saw a couple of cows right along the highway that seemed got away from the range fence...I can finally say that we made around Mt. Haleakala.

  • Rachel Yoo 1 year ago

    This is so useful! going in february & will def use this tips :)

  • cathy halligan 1 year ago

    is the road scary or just curvy?

    Susan Record 1 year ago

    It's curvy---absolutely beautiful. A "MUST SEE" as far as I am concerned. I have been to Maui 3 times and going again in September and will once again drive the Road to Hana---it is a treasure.

  • Andrew Springer 2 years ago

    What is the name of the song/artist for the video? And thank you for posting this!

  • Jelly Donut 2 years ago

    Tip #8, if it's your first time visiting Maui skip the road to Hana. There are better ways to spend your time if you've never been. Save this for the 3rd or 4th trip

    Austin Lynn 1 year ago

    Jelly Donut for some people a Hawaiian vacation is a once in a lifetime opportunity

  • Liana H. 2 years ago

    This was so beautiful...... have taken this road over 30 times and enjoy it each time. It's truly so special..... thank you for a special video
