Old Lahaina Fort Ruins


Latitude & Longitude:






Sadly, this attraction was damaged but not destroyed in the August '23 Maui wildfires. The good news is it will be back, but it's currently closed to the public until further notice as emergency responders work to clean up debris and hazardous materials left in the aftermath of the wildfires. Kindly refrain from stopping on the bypass or streets to take pictures or get a closer look. #LahainaStrong

Once known as a whaling port, Lahaina is now a charming town that attracts tourists who want to shop, eat, or sightsee. The downtown area is picturesque flanked by water and docked boats. In its whaling days, the fort was where the less industrious, inebriated sailors were imprisoned if they didn't make it back to their ship in time. The eroded wall, which used to be the prison, is in the center of what is now Banyan Tree Park near one of the largest banyan trees in the world.
