I would really appreciate some advice on where to stay in Maui. My wife and I are planning on making a trip to Maui this July for our 1 year anniversary. I am currently considering Wailea vs. Kaanapali vs Kapalua.
My only concerns are that I hear Kapalua & Kaanapali can be very windy. Is this true even during July? Also, I hear that Wailea does not really have much of a night scene or local culture (local restaurants, bars, etc).
I'm basically looking for a nice area with more activities / local flare / restaurants and nice weather. Ideally, I would like to be able to go out to a local restaurant, have a nice dinner and be able to stroll along the street at night and walk into some open shops (similar to Waikiki).
Do any of the areas I am considering have this characteristic and should I be concerned with the weather in July in any of these areas?
