West Maui Mountains

One of the few drives that rivals the Road to Hana is around the backside of West Maui. Driving from Lahaina on Highway 30 up and around the island towards Kahului on Highway 340 affords you a chance to see many breath-taking views. The road tends to get very narrow to 1 lane and follows the cliffs around the mountains. This is definitely a drive where the driver should pay full attention to the road. See Map

Highest WaterfallYou'll pass through farmland, along side rugged mountains, near lush rainforest, along valleys, and next to pristine coastline. You'll pass many scenic spots including the Olivine Pools, Nakalele Point and Blowhole, and the impressive, picturesque Kahakuloa Head. Once you've driven all the way around and past Kahului, you'll come to the Iao Valley, something not to be missed.

The best way to see the West Maui Mountains is by helicopter tour. Some of the most incredible sights in all of Hawaii can only be seen by helicopter like the "Wall of Tears", a lush cliff face with dozens of waterfalls draped over it. The West Maui Mountains are older than Haleakala therefore they're more worn, weathered and lush. They resemble the same kind of landscape you'd find at the Napali Coast in Kauai.
