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.  Put Lahaina Banyan Court at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lahaina route planning app .

  • Have driven by here so many times but never realized how cool it was until now. The giant banyan tree should not be missed when you are walking up and down Front street shopping or after you eat. Very cool place.
  • Amazing Banyan tree! 17 major trunks all part of the same tree. The largest one in the USA. Around .66 acres of canopy. We were the on a Sunday and there was a big open market. They had lots of hand crafted jewelry and artwork. A great place to look for souvenirs while in the shade of the banyan tree.
