Fiji was named the Best Family Holiday Destination during the 2012 Travel Bug Awards.

Beating other family holiday hot-spots like Hawaii and Vanuatu, Fiji walked away with the award based on accessibility, safety and security for children and the activities on offer, with appeal to all ages.

With its incredibly friendly people, value-packed, family-tailored travel packages and a huge number of resort options, attractions and activities available, Fiji prides itself on offering a safe haven for families to relax and have fun, just a few hours flight from Australia.

Fiji took the top spot with its combination of easily accessible attractions, modern facilities and food options to suit the fussiest of children. A range of kids’ clubs and day care centres, that allow parents to have their own holiday and head off on their own adventures, are another compelling reason why Fiji is the best family holiday destination in the world.

“Fiji continues to be the destination of choice for Australian family holidays and it is wonderful to receive this validation,” Australian Regional Director, Paresh Pant said in a Tourism Fiji statement.

“Families who holiday with us always leave with a smile”.

With over 330 tropical islands to choose from, Fiji received approximately 345,000 Australian visitors in the last year alone and according to Tourism Fiji, over 21% of that figure was travelling with families.
