Things to do in Fiji with Kids

The South Pacific Island of Fiji is known as an oasis made up of over 300 islands, coral reefs, calm lagoons, and white sand beaches. The availability of cheap flights from Australia, friendly locals, laid back atmosphere, and large selection of affordable resorts makes it a number one pick for families looking for an easy school holiday break.

While Fiji is known as a family-friendly mecca, the overwhelming choice of fun experiences for the little ones may make picking the best options difficult. We’ve selected our top choices of things to do in Fiji with kids these school holidays!

See Iguanas at Kula Eco Park

There’s nothing quite like getting the kids up close and personal with nature, and at the Kula Wild Adventure Park, you can do just that. Conveniently located on the Coral Coast, the park is Fiji’s biggest outdoor adventure park and ecological reserve. You can easily spend a whole day enjoying activities like ziprail, the kiddies’ splash pool, and the Splash Mountain Jungle water slide.

For the budding animal-enthusiasts, the park lets visitors hold the likes of snakes and iguanas, as well as hand-feed sea turtles - all included within the park’s entry fee.

Go Snorkelling on the Coral Coast

The Coral Coast is home to some of the best beaches on the island, and also some of the most family-friendly! For a chilled-out day snorkelling, head to Beqa Island Lagoon. Located a short boat trip off the coast of Viti Levu, the lagoon is famous for its coral reefs and marine biodiversity. A number of tour operators offer day trips out to the island which include all equipment and refreshments.

If you prefer to stick to the main island, Natadola Beach offers a safe environment for children to snorkel. With coral and sea life located not far from the beach itself, children won’t have to swim out into deep waters to spot some cool marine life!

Resorts are almost as common as coconuts in Fiji, and most of them have excellent Kids Clubs and facilities available. If you’re in need of a break, leave the kids to be entertained in capable hands while you relax with a cocktail by the pool or on the beach.

The Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort is perfect for those with babies or young children, offering a Meimei (nanny) service for children aged 6 months to 12 years. There’s also a kid’s club for children aged 3 to 12 years old which offers a range of activities, including traditional Fijian cultural activities.

Ride the Sigatoka River Safari

For a fun day trip for the whole family that’s a little out of the ordinary, check out the Sigatoka River Safari. This activity combines action with culture, as Fiji’s first jet boat safari and eco village tour.

Passengers spend the day cruising on custom-built jet boats up the Sigatoka River, the longest river on Viti Levu. After learning about the history of the river and admiring its natural beauty, it’s time to hit an authentic Fijian village. At the village, guests get a village tour and traditional Fijian lunch. There’s even a singing and dancing performance to join in with, which will keep the kids entertained and give them an insight into the traditional culture of the island.

While beaches and coral reefs are a must when holidaying in the Pacific, giving the kids an insight into traditional Fijian culture can also make for an entertaining, and informative family activity.

Kids can enjoy carving, fishing, pottery, and dance demonstrations, while Mum and Dad can sample local Kava in a drinking ceremony. Finish the night with a freshly cooked “Lovo” (food cooked underground) dinner.
