Road to Hana - matter what day of the week?

Is it more crowded on weekends? We are trying to plan out our upcoming honeymoon itinerary.

Thanks!

I don't think the day matters as much as the time of day you go. The hotel reccomended leaving early in the morning (8AM in Kapalua) to beat most of the tourists. When the hana highway gets crowded, you move soooo slow!

For the next four months I'd plan on travelling on weekends. There is some roadwork going on, starting at mile marker 1 just after Puohokamoa Bridge just before Ke`anae. They are scaling loose rocks, resurfacing the slope and adding a protective netting to prevent future rock falls. This mean that one lane will be closed during the day, 8:30 -3:30 on weekdays.

Between June 21 to July 1the road will be completely clsoed between 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Construction is suppoed to finished in August.

Sorry, that should be MM11, not MM1.

Another, better option might be to leave at the crack of dawn. Everyone will be going on the weekend, and summer is the busiest time.

If you hit the road at 6 you will be well past the construction by 8:30.
