Landmark Tourist Spot
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.  Arrange your visit to Lahaina Banyan Court and discover more family-friendly attractions in Lahaina using our Lahaina holiday planner.

  • The Banyan tree takes up the entire park and is one of the largest in the U.S. It's such a unique tree to look at and take photos of. The park also includes the ruins of the old Lahaina Fort and the C...  more »

  • We have this site walking and it has been a pleasant surprise. The tree is spectacular, I would have never imagined a tree as well. The site is very cool and is this very cool, is worthwhile if you spend here stand up to make something in one of the loa many banks that are in the shadow of this magnificent tree.

  • Cool tree, it will take a couple of minutes to look at it. The town very crowded and hard to find parking beach it is by the beach. The town is your typical beach front town. Very nice.
  • This place is always amazing with the Banyan tree! Watch out for homeless people wanting to take your photo, only downside. Close to shops and our favorite Bad-Ass Coffee company. Love this place!
  • It's a nice court to relax. No swinging or climbing up the trees. Only if the parents keep their kids under control, you won't find children up on the trees. And selfie has empowered so much that you see big selfie sticks everywhere here. Nice shades under these big trees.
  • Huge Banyan tree, so big that it covers the whole block. Small shops under the tree and live music. There is a lot of shade form the tree with nice breeze. Had an awesome time.
  • It's okay. Nice place but its all about spending money. Unfortunately it's a lot of china made stuff repeatedly in a lot of the stores. But they do have some fine art and fine jewery stores.

Where to stay in Lahaina

Despite its popularity with tourists, Lahaina offers relatively few accommodations, which boil down to rental properties and several hostel-like establishments with rooms available on a nightly, weekly, or monthly basis. If you don't have to stay in Lahaina itself, consider lodgings in Kaanapali, less than 15 minutes away by car. Other good options are the resort hotels just to the north of Lahaina, and oceanside campgrounds to the south.
