Hawaii with a 16 year old daughter

Any suggestions on which resort and island to stay so our daughter can get to know other kids of her age (15-18 years old)? A beautiful beach is also a must!

thanks!!!

What is your budget for hotel? This makes a huge difference as to recommendations.

What other activities do you plan to do? Islands with the best beaches would be Oahu, Maui and Kauai. Most teen girls like shopping & fun restaurants - I would pick Oahu or Maui. :)

I think your first decision is to figure out what island you want to visit. Pick up a copy of Hawaii for Dummies or another travel guide that really focuses on the islands. Also get a good map.

1) How many night will you be in Hawaii?

2) What is your nightly accomodations budget?

3) Three of you? Who is traveling?

Lots of info including sites with free brochures for all islands:

On the Hawaii forum, on the left of the page click on Before You Go, Things to Do, Restaurants.

Do the same on the Oahu forum, the Maui forum, the Kauai forum & the Island of Hawaii forum.

Unless your daughter is unusual I think she'd be happiest on O`ahu or Maui. Much more going on than Kaua`i. Kaua`i is very rural, quiet and laid-back.

I'll repeat..when are you going...what is your budget. It makes a difference in our help if you are talking $200 a night or $800. I would choose Maui, Kaanapali area with a teen, but then I don't know your daughter!

More info please! :-P
