  • Hard to believe one tree can grow to this size, needs many holders to hold the branches. With Christmas lights, it's better to do in the evening. There is an arts market on weekends under the tree. A ...  more »
  • This park is wonderful to walk around and see the roots attach themselves all around the park. Sitting on a bench and perusing the scenery is calming. 
  • Everyone says this is a "must see" location and I am glad we saw it I guess to say we'd been, but it really is just a giant tree. Worth the stop if you are out and about in the area, but wouldn't sugg...  more »

  • 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.
