In the heart of the South Pacific, Fiji’s enchanting islands offer a variety of experiences… from unwinding on the idyllic beaches of the Yasawas and the Mamanucas and snorkelling in clear blue sea to exploring the verdant rainforest of the main island, Viti Levu. Combine a couple of islands in different areas to really get a feel for Fiji or set sail around the islands in your own private family yacht… and before you know it you’ll be saying ‘Bula’ like a local! Fiji has a warm, tropical climate all year, with May to October experiencing less rain than the summer months of November to April.
Turquoise Top Pick for families – Vomo Island Fiji, Mamanucas
Your island adventure begins as soon as you board your helicopter or seaplane in Nadi and fly 15 minutes north to the top of Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands. As you approach Vomo Island, surrounded by powdery soft beaches with Mt Vomo rising from sea so blue you’ll think it’s been dyed, you’ll know you’re in paradise. All Vomo’s villas are family friendly, and younger guests have their very own ‘Baby Butler’. Villas on the Hill nestle on the slopes of Mt Vomo with views across the ocean and island whilst Beachfront Villas are just steps away from the soft white sand and coral-filled lagoon.
The snorkelling around Vomo Island is wonderful, and you can plunge into this glorious underwater world straight from the beach. The interactive Kids Village – accessed via a fun suspension bridge – has bright play areas plus fish feeding, treasure hunts, traditional song and dance and a hands-on Hawksbill turtle protection programme
