Here’s a closer look at some free and cheap things for your teenager to do while visiting one of Hawaii’s islands.

Head to the Beach

Hawaii has countless gorgeous beaches to choose from, no matter what island you’re on.

Go Surfing

One of the best activities that you will find on the beach is surfing. You can also find fairly reasonable prices on surfboard rentals. 


You can find some incredible places to go snorkeling in Hawaii. Some spots are so clear that they’re among the best places to snorkel in the world.

Go Sightseeing

Diamond Head, Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, and Haleakala National Park are among some of the best places to see on the islands.

Visit Pearl Harbor

Even teenagers can appreciate the sacrifice of the men and women that fought in Pearl Harbor. Teens will see and learn about the USS Arizona Memorial while taking a small boat ride.

Turtle Spotting

Laniakea Beach is also called “Turtle Beach,” and for good reason. This won’t be your typical beach visit. If you visit at the right time, you will see hundreds of sea turtles beached along the seashore.
