  • This is a cool park, but when we were there it was full of transients. A fight broke out among a group of them, so it wasn't so much fun for us. The tree and park itself though is very cool. There are...  more »
  • Park is set by Marina on front street lots of shops and food choices close by. Also if you are looking for some weed a couple vendors offer that in the shade of the tree. 
  • Have been here many times. Banyan tree takes up whole block. Tables and benches and periodic craft sales are enjoyable.

  • If you like to play tourist and shop at high end stores with high end prices this is the place. The Banyan tree is very unique. It is a fun way to spend an afternoon.
  • When friends from off-island come to visit Maui, and we have plans to run around in Lahaina, I'll usually pick up lunch somewhere close by and we'll come here and eat it at the Banyan tree. It's a very nice, friendly place to sit down and relax in the shade. I still remember the days before all the shops, when children could run around and climb the tree. Much has changed, but the banyan tree itself is still the same awesome tree. It's also fun to take 5 or 10 minutes to check out the historical sites that surround the tree courtyard.
  • The banyan tree is amazing! I didn't know trees could be that expansive.
  • Love the big tree. :) Just so crowded walking around, but that is not their fault. shops are pricey..as expected. Nice views all around
  • Cool tree and on weekends they have little vendors show up. We found amazing items for long term memories here. The people are amazing.
