Lahaina Banyan Court, Lahaina
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.

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.
This is a massive banyan tree, larger than all the ones scattered throughout Downtown Honolulu. They don't let you swing on the roots the way we would do as keiki, but my son and I did manage to play hide and seek. The tree provides much-needed shade from the beating Lahaina sun.
The most amazing Banyan tree you will ever see. I lived in Florida for years with banyan trees all over the place. They don't even compare.
I didn't realize the Bantan tree is one tree first time I have been here. It is a mesmerizing view.
A lot to do here! Great photo opportunities! There's public restrooms, a museum and plenty of shops surrounding the area.
