I have been writing about Fiji as a vacation destination for a few months now as a result of our partnership with Fiji Vacations and putting together these dreamy posts have become almost torturous because it makes me want to go to Fiji SO BADLY!!!
Some might think Fiji is just a place for honeymooners or romantic getaways. It is. But did you know many resorts in Fiji also cater to families?
Best Family-Friendly Fiji Resorts
I asked Melissa, the owner of Fiji Vacations who has personally visited ever single resort in Fiji to share her opinion of her top 5 best family-friendly Fiji resorts. She knows what to look for because she has a young son and has traveled to Fiji with him numerous times. Here are her picks!
