About
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 that 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.

Too touristy for me. Too many people, too hard to find parking and same stuff in most stores (and overpriced). I felt like I was at a overpriced flea market. My husband went here 23 years ago and was excited to go. He was quite disappointed in it with all the changes. Banyan tree was an interesting stop but everything else was eh .. uneventful.

Very disappointed. Typical of any small town near the beach, streets are narrow, lots of one ways, constant traffic. Now that can be overlooked if there is some great shopping or some other draw. The banyon tree was interesting, some good tours go out from there, but the shopping was nothing to brag about. Jewelery stores sold the same thing you could get anywhere, the shops sold gelato, snacks and stuff I could get anywhere. We drove the area multiple times, most of the streets, looking for a nice shop to get something memorable as we had dedicated the day to it and had we not had a great tour from there it would have been a waste of a day. The city needs to step up and tend to some seriously needed repairs. My husband walks with a cane and it was like walking thru a mine field of uneven sidewalks that had chunks missing. We went, we saw, id not return except for the tours.

A lot of the stores have the same things but with different prices so don't buy the first thing you see. Shop around then go back if you have to where you saw the item you want cheaper.

We followed a walking tour that we downloaded. We went at 9 am. Parking was easy, free 3 hours most everywhere on the street. It was interesting but awfully hot and crowded.

Brought my 88 year old handicapped mother to Maui for a much anticipated visit. Front St is NOT safe for handicapped people. Sidewalks are in pitiful shape. Totally understand them being narrow but uneven, large chunks of cement missing is ridiculous. It wasn’t just a small area but rather all of Front St. It was easier to push her on the street. City or County needs to step up.

In 2019 there were several jewelry stores we could choose from to purchase items that were unique. 2022, those places are now ice cream/gelato shops or those annoying beauty places that try to sell you their expensive cosmetics. Or, the places are closed. We came during the day and there were people walking the street. We came there at night and not so many people, in fact, walking to our car past closed businesses and dark alleys was downright unnerving. We were sorry to see this but had no desire to go back to Front Street. Instead we went to Whalers village and their wares.

Got coffee from the new Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf coffeeshop in the Old Lahaina Center.
New, clean and free parking.
Got a cappuccino to go and it was good and came in a sturdy cup.
Will go again

Have loved visiting Front Street in the past, but this visit, we shopped elsewhere earlier in the week. Here, we saw more of the same things for sale but for more money. It was also very busy and parking was a little nuts. We'll give it a miss next visit, but if you've never gone, it's fun to come and walk around. The Banyan Tree is a fave spot to visit.

Stores and restaurants of every type plus a beautiful town square with an amazing banyan tree. Wander far enough and you will find BeYoutiful Soul Shop - fun choices in women's wear plus books, crystals, and more. Jessalyn is friendly and helpful.

Great way to end the day. We always go to one of the restaurants in the vicinity for dinner and then get a Dole Whip, ice cream or gelato and spend the rest of the evening browsing the shops. Always the perfect end to the day.
