Friendly Fiji is the perfect place for a relaxing trip away with your terrific (or terrible) teens. This South Pacific oasis is bound to impress even the most discerning holidaymaker with is lush surrounds - plus it's got plenty of activities for all the family to enjoy!
Whether you choose to explore Nadi, the Coral Coast, Denarau or all of the above, you'll find many unique experiences to enjoy together or apart - depending on how family-orientated you're feeling at the time. Many of the resorts on the islands cater to teens and kids and offer everything from huge pools, arcades and golf to swim-up bars and Fijian dancing.
Teens are usually at an age where they can be allowed a little bit of freedom, so send them off to the other end of the pool while you sip away at a fresh cocktail. Alternatively, relax beachside while they try their hand at a range of popular water activities such as snorkelling or paddle boarding. All you'll need to do is raise your head from your book occasionally to give them an encouraging thumbs up and they'll be away laughing.
The Fijian locals are incredibly friendly and inviting, so with any luck you may even find your older kids buddying up with others on the island. They can explore the stunning reefs while you laze by the pool with a magazine, or if you're feeling energetic you may want to treat your whole family to the thrill of jet skiing or white water rafting. You could even get the chance to swim with manta rays in Fiji's crystal clear waters, so make sure you've got your camera at the ready!
If your teens are determined to shop away their holiday, take them to the Fiji Markets to collect souvenirs and presents for friends back home. Here you'll find everything from carved bowls to replica war clubs, plus plenty of fresh produce and clothing items to make use of while you're on holiday.
You'll find the warm weather and relaxed style of island living encourages a slightly different dress code than what you may be used to, so stock up on beautiful Sulus! These are one-size-fits-all wraps for both men and women, and once you put one on you'll never want to take it off. Your teen might even come home with a whole collection!
