#FamGoals = A Family Postcard From Fiji! Tourism Fiji

Times have changed and so has the cliché ‘family holiday’. Say bye to typical vacations and say hello to inspiring family escapes that are long overdue to the islands of Fiji. Comprising of 333 islands there’s something for everyone, from adventure sports surrounded by lush natural vegetation to scrumptious seafood and cultural activities – you are your family’s ticket to happiness.

Did you know that Fiji Airways flies directly via Singapore and Hong Kong to Fiji and that Fiji is just 3 hours away from New Zealand and 4 hours away from Australia by flight? It’s actually closer than you think!

Travelling from India is no longer complicated thanks to free visa-on-arrival for Indians. So, this gives room for spontaneous trips and one less thing to worry about when you’re planning your family escape.


Happiness thrives here, read on to see why your next family vacation should be in Fiji. Pack your bags because Fiji is calling!


Sleep. Eat. Island. Repeat

Start your island-hopping escapades on the sun-kissed Mamanuca Islands, Fiji. Where you could partake in a range of water sports like diving in the beautiful coral gardens, cruising and fishing in the sapphire sea or learning how to surf and paddleboard.

Bollywood actress, Ileana D'cruz says “World Class Surfing with some epic swells where else but in Fiji! If you love Surfing you will love Fiji! Come experience some awesome waves in the magnificent waters of Fiji!"

You could even arrange for a family picnic on uninhabited Monuriki Island! Sail there with South Sea Cruises and be sure to go on a guided snorkel tour and kayaking. Your kids will title this as their ‘best picnic’ till date!

For one of the best diving experiences, pay a visit to Barefoot Manta Island in Yasawa Islands, the home to iconic inhabitants, the manta ray. As you see these huge, curious and harmless creatures, it’s definite, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind meet and greet with them underwater.

                                                                                                                           PC-Tourism Fiji 

Fijians are known to prepare delicious food in unique ways. So, try tasting all of their mouthwatering delicacies for a fantastic Fijian culinary experience.

You must try the Lovo, the traditional Fijian dish where chicken or fish meat is cooked in an underground oven wrapped in banana leaves and various roots, all layered up. It takes several hours to cook, but is definitely worth the wait! And do try the Kokoda; a raw fish dish. It’s a Fijian take on ceviche (trust us, you’ll love this version more).


You can live out ‘Finding Nemo’

                                                                                                                      PC-Tourism Fiji 

Split Rock is considered one of the most enticing spots for snorkelling in Savusavu Bay on the island of Vanua Levu in Fiji. Your children will be thrilled to witness a real-life ‘Nemo’ environment while snorkelling during the underwater ‘rush hour’.

HolidayIQ traveller Aishwarya says “I went here with my family. The sugar white beaches, friendly people and visa-on-arrival for Indians made this my best beach vacay till date”

                                                                                                                    PC-Tourism Fiji 

Split Rock is also home to colourful coral and several reef species, such as sergeant fish, clownfish, and damsels. Grouper, Giant Clams, and Parrotfish are also commonly spotted in and around this spot.


Nothing like nature, visit an eco-park!

                                                                                                                                            PC-Tourism Fiji 

Swim, raft, dive or aqua-trek amidst nature and all its glory at Pacific Harbour in Viti Levu.

For an action-packed time on your family vacation at Pacific Harbour be amid the beauty of the Fijian waters and go snorkelling, white water rafting, fishing, surfing and jet skiing. These ultimate water activities will make you a family of storytellers!

                                                                                                                                    PC-Tourism Fiji 

Ileana D’Cruz says “Hailing a cab is so passé…Come try some new transportation in Fiji!”


Culture 101 only: Spend the day in a local village

                                                                                                                     PC-Tourism Fiji 

Take a lovely trip to the Navala Village Tour situated on the banks of the Ba River. Seeing the villagers still live in traditional thatched roof houses of ‘bures’ and relying mostly on nature for their daily needs, will make you go back in time.

Ileana D’ Cruz says “The Fijian kava ceremony is a beautiful blend of tradition, culture, and happiness. It’s definitely something you don’t want to miss!”

The village tour will give you a great insight into Fijian culture and history. Support and buy crafts made by the villagers and take part in a ‘Kava Ceremony’. Converse with the locals and let your kids play with theirs. This tour will truly be an enriching experience for your whole family.

                                                                                                                     PC-Tourism Fiji 

Ileana D’Cruz saysFiji truly is a place where happiness finds you! And these gorgeous Fijian kids were just pure sunshine.”


Your kids will revel in the love and affection from the Fijians

                                                                                                                          PC-Tourism Fiji 

Fijian holidays for families are so popular because of the ‘kids clubs’, which most resorts have and are generally free. They provide an array of activities for the kids to do throughout the day and night like bushwalking, fish feeding, coconut boat racing and crab racing, to name a few.

HolidayIQ traveller Harsh says “The kids’ club in the resort let my wife and I get some alone time. My kids enjoyed the Fijian activities at the club. It was basically a win-win for everyone!”

While on a family holiday it’s important to relax and enjoy some ‘alone couple-time’. Thanks to the kids' clubs, you and your partner can do that peacefully knowing your kids are safe and nearby. The kids also have a good time engaging in the activities, playing with caretakers (everyone knows Fijians adore kids) and interacting with other children.

A few places that have kids clubs: Shangri La Fijian Resort, InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa, Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort and Plantation Island.

Expect to have a special vacation at Fiji. Where your entire family can experience the best of everything and more. Since happiness lives here, it’s sure to follow you back home, owing to the amazing memories that you will make here with each other.
