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.

  • This fig tree of Bengal is the largest in the American territory. Originally from India, has interesting feature of aerial roots that sustain horizontal branches. And by nightfall, the thousands of birds that sleep in their branches, linda. In addition to pleasant location, is the reference point for the port of Lahaina or camingadas by Front St.

  • 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.
