This is a great place to catch shade and people watch while enjoying a Shave Ice (Local Boys). There are plenty of places to sit and many people carve messages into this beautiful old tree, which seems unnecessarily cruel if you ask me.

The tree is amazing with it being the largest of its type anywhere. On multiple occasions during our stay they held the artist sales or musicians played for the visitors.

it is an amazing experience to wander through the various branches and trunks of this tree. If your wife wears you out shopping, its a great place to find a bench.

Loved this restaurant and was very surprised that they closed it down. What a waste of a great space, they really need to reconsider their decision to close.

When in Lahaina, you must stop by the Banyan tree in central town. So big you cannot even take a photo of the whole thing. Nice atmosphere to sit and relax.

What a marvelous tree, shading almost an acre. Lovingly cared for. A beautiful reminder of the respect we should pay to Mother Nature.

Located on the water front in Lahaina, the Banyan Tree takes up an entire city block and is worth taking time to visit. Be sure and put this on your list of things to do while visiting Lahaina.
