There are heaps of things to see, do and experience that will keep every member of the family entertained, ensuring that your holiday is filled with ever-lasting memories.
What makes Fiji holidays so unforgettable is the people and the culture. Fijians have a way of making you feel like you’ve just arrived home when stepping off the plane and they are world-renown for being one of the most welcoming cultures you will ever come across. Enjoy a family holiday to this beautiful South Pacific destination and relax and unwind while Fiji’s famous MeiMei nannies keep the kids occupied and entertained!
Best Fiji Holiday Spots for Families
The Coral Coast
The Coral Coast has everything for the ultimate family holiday including plenty of 5-star resorts that encompass every facility you could ever want. Besides being home to world-class accommodation, the Coral Coast is conveniently located, allowing your family access to the birthplace of Fiji adventure tourism. To see your kid’s smiles reflect those of the beaming locals, make a trip to Kula Wild Adventure Park. Hidden in the lush, green Fijian rainforest, walk amongst tree tops and take the plunge on Splash Mountain water slide – an experience you’ll remember for years to come. Afterwards, venture to the Sigatoka Sand dunes. Standing abruptly along the coast line, climb to the top and take in views of colourful corals hidden beneath the calm ocean surface.
If it’s your first time abroad with the family, you may wish to base yourself in Denarau. A 30-minute drive from the main airport, Denarau is the perfect way to settle into the Fijian way of life. With a western influence to keep the fussiest of eaters happy, indulge in their world-class facilities. What sets Denarau apart is its family-friendly resorts which offer fantastic kids clubs and nannies that will take care of your kids as if they were their own (leaving you to take a break and enjoy a cocktail by the pool).
Close enough to many of Fiji’s main attractions like the stunning Mamanuca Islands, you’ll also be able to take day trips and tours to explore all of Fiji.
The Mamanuca Islands are an ideal Fiji holiday location for families with both younger children needing entertainment or for older children who are no longer interested in kid’s club activities. Either way they’ll have heaps of action-packed entertainment - snorkeling, kayaking, paddle-boarding, fish feeding, cultural shows and lessons, jet skiing and more – all located in a stunning area of Fiji. The kids can spend the day exploring the different islands, both above and below the water, while you lay on a secluded beach with a book in one hand and a cold beer in the other.
