We've all dreamt of travelling to Hawaii at some stage in our lives - and while originally your dream may not have included a couple of teens in tow, you'll soon find there are so many options for families in the sunny state. And hey, if the kids start to play up, there are plenty of individual pursuits to enjoy too!

Say "Aloha" to hundreds of beaches spread across the six main islands, and enjoy beautiful weather year-round. From Honolulu to Oahu, Waikiki to Maui, there are a huge range of activities to keep your younger family members satisfied.


If it's pristine beaches, crystal clear oceans, swaying palm treats and superb scenery you're after, look no further. Hawaii is known as paradise for good reason - it's simply stunning. Surfy teens will love Oahu's North Shore for watching world-famous big wave surfers take on the biggest breaks you'll ever see. Sneak away for a sunbathe and perhaps a cheeky drink as they take in the sight of their new heroes.

Make sure you include a trip to Pearl Harbour on your family's to-do list. You'll learn about a vital part of America's history, plus get the chance to explore the memorials and museums found in the area. Your teens may not thank you for it now but in time they'll realise what an important visit it is to make.


Active teens (or those with active parents!) will love a trip to Hawaii's Big Island for treks through vast rainforests, botanical gardens and waterfalls. From here you can snorkel, fish or scuba dive off the Kona Coast, plus take in the world's most active volcano of Kilauea.

Teenagers with a passion for fashion will have a world of shopping at their fingertips in Hawaii, especially in the capital Honolulu. From the Ala Moana centre to to the Waikele Premium Outlets, you'd be hard pressed to return from your holiday without having purchased a new item or two!


Finally, when you're exhausted from shopping and seeing the sights, sprawl out on one of Hawaii's world-famous beaches to top up your tan and relax in one of the world's most beloved holiday locations.
