Lahaina Banyan Court, Lahaina

4.5
Occupying the site of an old fort, spans just under 1 hectare (2 acres) and contains several heritage sites on the  self-guided trail through the town's historical district. The star attraction of the park is a banyan tree, planted here in 1873 to mark the 50th anniversary of the first American Protestant mission in Lahaina. Now the largest banyan tree in all of Hawaii, the giant trunk and its aerial root system cover nearly 2,700 sq m (29,000 sq ft) of the park. Native to India, this banyan is one of 60 types of fig trees currently found on the islands of Hawaii.  Put Lahaina Banyan Court at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lahaina route planning app .

  • The trees are cool and line the streets in one area, but the real interest is that all kinds of folks donated theses trees, our tour guide pointed out who donated which tree and that was interesting. ...  more »
  • Small park full of banyan trees to seek shelter from the heat and enjoy a lunch picnic or shaved ice.  more »
  • The Banyan Tree Park is a good place to get some shade and sit for a few to relax or eat some shave ice from a nearby establishment. The tree is huge and fascinating.  more »

  • Have driven by here so many times but never realized how cool it was until now. The giant banyan tree should not be missed when you are walking up and down Front street shopping or after you eat. Very cool place.
  • Amazing Banyan tree! 17 major trunks all part of the same tree. The largest one in the USA. Around .66 acres of canopy. We were the on a Sunday and there was a big open market. They had lots of hand crafted jewelry and artwork. A great place to look for souvenirs while in the shade of the banyan tree.
  • Amazing place with great atmosphere. The market itself was nothing special when I was there. Mostly the same touristy items found elsewhere with the addition of a few local(?) artists, but worth a visit to see the tree if you are in the area.
  • This tree is amazing. It covers almost an acre of land. The more you look around, the more you see, like how it is all connected to the central trunk. Totally mesmerising.
  • Awesome tree! If you like plantations then this will be a really interesting little park for you to go. Though it does have the sense of People's Park at Berkeley during the night (if you know what i mean). The tree itself is still a marvel to look at. It's at the end of Front St. You'll see it when you get there.
