“The busride to the Banyan tree - spectacular and cheap!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

I discovered the $2 day pass with which you can take any bus on any of the routes for the day. Beats wasting gass and getting lost (yes, I am one of those). The #20 route on the Lahaina Islander bus from the Queen Ka'ahumanu Center in Kahului, with a stop at the Ma'alaea Harbor Village (maybe get a meal here on your way back - check the bus timetable to make sure there is still one coming back -) opposite the aquarium (visit the aquarium on another day), was breathtaking and very curvy. Miles of ocean with paddle surfers and kayaks to add to the thrill on the one side and steep mountains on the other side, with parts of the old road visible - how did the guys managed to reach Lahaina without falling over the edge? - made this a trip I will try to take many times more. The bus left us at the Wharf Cinema Center in Lahaina. The quaint shops start here and continue both ways down Front Street.
The sight of the majestic Banyan tree with the art displayed beneath the outreaching branches and the tourists enjoying the beauty surrounding it, is something no photograph can duplicate. You have to go and see for yourself. With only $2 for the trip, you will have plenty left to spend. And yes, there is good Maui coffee to give you that extra energy for all the walking you are sure to do. Enjoy!

“In the Middle of it all...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

This is one, or several trees all together like we never seen before. Nice spot for a shade break while walking through Lahaina. You will even get a sermon while you sit. There are also bathrooms in the courthouse that were surprisingly very clean.

“the Banyan tree is free!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

The biggest Banyan tree in the United States. I have never seen branches that grow roots until I visited Hawaii. What a weird and neat part of nature. Free and right on main street.

“Beautiful park with added attraction of a seasonal art fair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

Really a lovely spot. Excellent place to take pictures. Very serene and peaceful. We also had the added benefit of an art fair and it was wonderful to look at all the works. Definitely worth a stop.
