Traveling with Teens – A parent’s survival guide

Family vacations can be a time for parents and kids to catch up and spend some quality time together. However, traveling with teens has a unique set of challenges that many parents may not consider until they are put into the uncomfortable position of being away from home with an uncooperative teen. There are ways to travel with your teens to ensure that everyone has a good time with minimal conflict. The main things to remember are to provide opportunities for everyone to have their own space, do things they enjoy, and take advantage of downtime.

Teenagers are seeking independence, and it can be helpful for the entire family if you provide an age-appropriate amount of activities for them to pursue on their own. In this blog post, we’ll go over some of the fun things to do your teens can enjoy while staying at our villas.

Grace Bay Beach // Turtle Cove

Impulse offers a cinema room, a games room, tons of beach games, and an ideal location with fun things to do.

Snorkel right outside the villa: Smith’s Reef sits within a few steps to our private villas on Turtle Cove. Explore and discover a beautiful underwater world teeming with life!

Love the private pool: All our villas come equipped with private pools. Cannonball competitions, water gun fights, and other pool games are fun, simple ways to keep entertained. Put their favorite tunes on the outdoor speakers and let the day take its course.

Kayak/Paddleboard across Grace Bay: The beach here is typically calm & shallow -great to take your paddleboards for a ride!
