About
-Temporary Closed Hit Lahaina’s scenic seafront main street for endless shopping, eating, nightlife and people-watching amid historic buildings and scenic views of the neighboring islands. You can grab some shaved ice before snagging some artisanal local handicrafts, sweet deals at the Outlets of Maui or checking out the fine art galleries that line Front Street. Along the way, don’t miss the Banyan Court Park and Hawaii's largest banyan tree which spans 1.94 acres and is over 150 years old. During the winter season, you can consider a whale-watching tour that departs from Front Street too. – Tripadvisor

When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Watch out for cosmetic sales, ruining the shopping experience on Front Street. Very aggressive sales people are young and will not let go of you. Do not talk to them, if you do not only will they sell overpriced products it will feel like you are trapped unless you also purchase their expensive led light and even more expensive stem cell cream. They are not allowed to accost people on sidewalks though they do anyway.

The press reports these are foreign bad actors who make so much $ they don’t care what it takes.

On the positive side, I was able to get items at my favorite locally owned stores.

I was on Maui for a week . I recommend an around the island land tour AND a helicopter tour . Air tours are so much fun . Book a mid morning air tour.

There is a small informative museum/ gift shop in the former courthouse, the buildings along Front street have been, for the most part preserved from the late 19th century, but for the most part, the crowds extinguish any charm this town could muster. It reminds me of most historic towns that have more or less been overwhelmed by their success.

It’s a very touristy street with a mixture of shops. These mainly sell the same things. The buildings are pretty to look at. When we were there it was very busy. Not many places to sit down.

We had a great time shopping up and down Lahaina’s Front Street, even though it was raining! We had been told that the best shopping on Maui was on Front Street and they were right. There were a lot of great stores. While some were selling the same t’shirts and touristy things, there were also a lot of specialty stores. We ended up doing most of our souvenir shopping on Front Street. We also stopped by the park to see the giant banyan tree, which was very cool. It’s a great place to spend a few hours!

We enjoyed walking to the little shops just browsing. We stopped initially for Shaved Ice which was refreshing and tasty. There are many small art galleries with amazing artisan displays .
We had a drink at Kimos Bar delicious carrot bread lettuce wraps with pork and coconut shrimp. The service and food were great and nice outside seating with Ocean View . Quaint and relaxing.

A definite “touristry” street, but also one which brings back a hint of old Hawaii. One of the few places on Maui that can give a glimpse of Hawaii 50 years ago.

A real joy to walk around the area looking at the shops and grabbing snacks on the way. Can be quite busy on certain days or if a cruise ship is off port.

Beautiful historic Lahaina. Check out the oldest Banyan Tree (incredible large and branches expand along the whole park), museum, art gallery with local work that is affordable) and fun shops and restaurants up and down front street. It’s a great place to just explore and walk. Pay to park. Sunsets at harborare gorgeous!

This is good if you're interested in browsing a lot of touristy shops or looking for a restaurant to eat at, because there are plenty of both here. Views of the water are nice, too. You can park for free at the outlets and then walk up and down the street.
