Hawaii’s Windiest Road Has Over 600 Curves And It’s Not For The Faint Of Heart
The Hawaiian Islands may be small in terms of land mass but are home to unsurpassed natural beauty, and while there are some wonders that can only be seen via strenuous hiking trails, or even helicopter tour, there are others that simply require a vehicle — as well as a camera and killer driving playlist.

You see, this incredible highway is home to a whopping 620 curves, making it the windiest road in the Aloha State, and one road that is certainly not for the faint of heart. But if you happen to have a strong stomach, let the adventure begin.
