NileGuide Expert tip:
It's the largest banyan tree in the world people! After dinner on Front Street be sure to grab and ice cream cone and find a bench under the banyan tree. At Christmas it is glowing with festive lights.
- If you visit downtown Lahaina, you are sure to happen across this tree. If you did not plan on visiting downtown Lahaina, you should change your plans so that you can see this major landmark. The tree is well over 100 years old, and will probably endure for several hundred more years. It is 60 feet high and covers 200 feet of space. With 12 trunks and several hundred drooping branches, it looks more like a miniature jungle than anything else. Locals make crafts under its shade, boys swing from the branches and tourists stare in amazement.
