If your teens are pestering you for a holiday away or you're looking to expose them to a little bit of culture, the island nation of Vanuatu is a perfect destination for the whole family. It's known for its easy-breezy combination of relaxing beaches, stunning nature and adventure activities to keep even the fussiest offspring occupied all day long.
Vanuatu has 113 distinct languages and many different dialects, so if you want to soak up some culture while you travel, this is the perfect place for your family. It's one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, so be sure to take your teens along to some of the many events that happen here every year.
Water sports enthusiasts will also be spoilt for choice in Vanuatu. Whether it's an exhilarating jet ride or a more serene ocean kayak experience, there's plenty here for all age groups and abilities. For a truly unique experience bound to impress everyone from fishing-lover Dad to your stroppy sprogs, try helmet diving with Oceanwalker Vanuatu. This allows you to get up close and personal with the nation's beautiful coral and tropical fish without even getting your hair wet - perfect for your image-conscious little ladies.
Challenge the kids to a blokart race and experience the thrill of land sailing. You'll get a full safety demonstration before you set off, then it's no holds barred to find out who the fastest person in your family really is.
Teens who love to be pampered can take time out at one of the many relaxing day spas in Vanuatu. Indulge in some mother-daughter bonding time while you get a massage or facial, or treat yourself to a full body scrub to reveal healthy, glowing skin you haven't seen since 1987. The locals won't know who's mother and who's daughter - or at least that's what they'll tell you!
