Castaway Island, Fiji
There's a long list of reasons why any island traveler will love Fiji. Thankfully, there's also a long list for why any parent will love Castaway Island, including fashion shows with make-your-own Fijian costumes, legends of Fiji told around the bonfire and crab hunting by torch light. In fact, the staff can keep kids and teens entertained for most of the waking hours from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. And of the 66 bures on the western tip of this otherwise naturally green private island, many sleep up to five people. Bigger families will want to reserve the one 10-person bure on the beach. After the activities and amenities, the sunset over the South Pacific is at the top of any list about why to come to Fiji. Rates from $325.
