USVI hi school grad trip for our daughter-Where do we go?

My husband and I are trying to plan a beach trip for our daughter who will graduate high school in May. We want to go early June and stay about 10 days. I've never been to USVI and need some suggestions. We love snorkeling and all water sports, laying on the beach and exploring where ever we are. We want to be in an area where there might be other teens for her to mingle with, yet safe and not too loud and crazy for us old folks (the parents)!

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

Maho or Cinnamon Bay campgrounds in STJ might fit the bill - both beachfront and great snorkeling.

Take a look at Secret Harbour on St. Thomas.

Have you thought about inviting one of your daughter’s friends? The friend would pay for her own airfare and perhaps her own food when you eat out. Her lodging, of course, would be free. Your daughter would have a “built-in” companion on St. John. I personally think it’s a little easier to meet other teenagers if one has a “wingman” or “wingwoman,” as the case may be!

We have done this for many years with our children and it has always been a wonderful experience. The friends are thrilled to be invited along and everyone has a great time. We choose to treat our children’s friends as extended family because our children already consider their friends to be family.

It’s truly is a win-win.
