Planted in 1873, this massive tree is the largest of its kind in the state and provides a welcome retreat and playground for locals and visitors, who rest, play music, and climb under (and atop) its awesome branches. The Banyan Tree is a popular and hard-to-miss meeting place if your party splits up for independent exploring. It's also a terrific place to be when the sun sets—mynah birds settle in here for a screeching symphony, which is an event in itself. Many Lahaina
festivals center on the Banyan Tree as well.
