French Polynesia, the Cook Islands and Fiji in particular have plenty to keep both children and adults happy. Many of the islands we feature are surrounded by protective reefs and encircling pristine tranquil lagoons, which are ideal for even the less confident swimmer and snorkeller.
The bungalow-style accommodation is ideal for family groups. Some of our preferred resorts have kids clubs, meaning you can relax in the sun whilst the children are looked after.
Traditional dance shows and feasts are a real family affair, and the warm Pacific Island welcome and extremely laid-back atmosphere means everyone can kick back and relax into 'island time' from the moment you step off the plane.
