With plenty of great things to do and experiences to be had across the islands, Fiji is a place where you
have time to relax and enjoy being with your family. Life feels slower in Fiji and everything is done on
‘Fiji time’ – so stop, breathe, and have fun.
Fun things to do with the kids
Fiji has plenty of family-friendly activities and fun things for your kids to do. Here are some ideas to
help you plan your trip:
• Snorkelling: What better place to teach the kids how to snorkel than in the clear waters of Fiji.
With some of the best coral reefs in the world and more tropical fish than you have ever seen,
this is an activity for the whole family to enjoy. The kids will be over the moon to spot their
friends Nemo (a Clown Fish) and Dory (a Blue/Regal Tang) in person.
• Go island hopping: Why spend all of your time on the one island? Take a day trip and see what
some of the other stunning islands have to offer. Swim, dive, snorkel, walk along tropical jungle
paths and explore.
• Have fun on the water: Take the family sailing, travel in a glass bottom boat, go fishing, hire a
jet ski, try parasailing or ride the banana boats.
• Kids Club: Fijians love children and their warmth relaxes even the shyest child. The Kids
Clubs offered by many of the resorts organise such fun activities it can be hard to convince your
children to come back home! From Fijian storytelling, coconut painting, water activities and
more, there is plenty to keep the kids happy.
