Taken this nice drive numerous times and its always worth the occasional traffic. Choosing to go early in the am on a weekend or in the late evening changes the perspectives entirely.

We hit this part of our loop trip from Honolulu after sunset. Surprisingly, the island and this road (Rte 83 and Rte 72) are notably enjoyable by moonlight. We returned to visit Hanauma Bay, so we got to see the road from there to Honolulu three times. It was nice in the daylight, but the first view under moonlight was the best. I really enjoyed Hanauma, despite a bad sunburn. It is very crowded, but i can'r resist an opportunity to play with animals - including fish who love handouts (Bring a loaf of bread).
