Lahaina is a town located on the western coast of the island and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Maui. The town has a rich history, dating back to ancient times when it was a center for Hawaiian royalty. Today, Lahaina is known for its beaches, shopping, and dining.

Welcome to Lahaina!

One of the main attractions in Lahaina is Front Street, a historic street lined with shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Visitors can find a wide range of souvenirs, such as Hawaiian shirts, jewelry, and crafts. The street is also home to several historic buildings, including the Baldwin House, which was built in 1834 and is now a museum.

Another popular attraction in Lahaina is the Lahaina Banyan Court, a large banyan tree that was planted in 1873 and has grown to cover an entire city block. The tree has multiple trunks and canopies, and visitors can walk under it and take pictures.

You must sit under this tree!

Lahaina is also a great place to enjoy the beach. Kaanapali Beach is a popular spot for swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling. The beach is surrounded by luxury resorts and is one of the best places to watch the sunset. Other popular beaches in Lahaina include Baby Beach and Black Rock Beach.
