Dreaming of a Polynesian escape for your next vacation getaway? Beautiful Fiji Islands in the South Pacific total more than 300 islands in a tropical, white sand paradise. Coral reef diving and snorkeling are exceptional. Over 1,000 species of fish swim the grottoes and lagoons, and colorful birds and tropical flowers are everywhere.
Typical itineraries are for 2 islands for a 7 to 9 day visit, or 3 islands for a 10-14 day vacation. Or, for a shorter stay maybe 1 island and 5-7 nights at destination. Allow two additional nights for travel. Properties offered by Expert Family Travel range from 3 star moderate to 5 star luxury, and include family-friendly or adults only, from small boutique properties on remote islands to mid-sized resorts in Nadi on the main island.
From the US, you ‘ll fly through Los Angeles. There are also flights from Honolulu to Nadi three times a week. This makes for a fun Hawaii-Fiji combo, but is not as cost effective as flights through LA. Flights to Fiji are about 10 hours from LAX airport. If you have plenty of time (say, 3 or 4 weeks), consider combining a Fiji stay with a tour of New Zealand or Australia (being 3 and 4 hours away, respectively).
