I've recently returned from a holiday to one of the happiest places on earth - Fiji.
Fiji certainly has good reason to have been given this title as it has beautiful beaches, amazing sunsets and a year round tropical climate. It certainly is a beautiful place however it is the Fijian people themselves who make it such a special place to visit. Fijians have such a warmth about them and are so hospitable. Almost anywhere you go you are welcomed with a greeting of Bula and a very genuine smile.
Fiji is a perfect destination for a family holiday. Most of the resorts that allow children also have kids clubs. The Fijian people absolutely love children and go out of their way to make sure that the children have a fun and memorable holiday. While the kids are enjoying themselves in kids club Mum and Dad also get to spend some time alone which I know from personal experience can be quite a rare opportunity in modern life!
As well as being the perfect place to go to for relaxing on the beach or sitting by the pool sipping a cocktail, Fiji is also a wonderful place to visit for the more adventurous type; activities to choose from include diving, fishing, snorkelling, golf, white water rafting, jungle treks, zip lining and if you're really brave then you could even try diving with the sharks!
For a very memorable cultural experience a number of resorts offer tours to visit villages which quite often include school visits. This is a great way to experience Fijian life and the school children absolutely love having visitors!
The best time to visit Fiji is May - October so perfect for a winter escape.
