The coolest holidays for over-60s

From the moment you arrive in Fiji, you’ll be greeted with a big smile and a boisterous “Bula!”.

The genuine kind-heartedness of the Fijian people will make you feel right at home, if home was a tropical paradise.

Fiji is one of the most accessible island destinations of the South Pacific, with the pride of the nation being marine activities, including snorkelling, diving, swimming with manta rays and reef sharks, and fishing (most likely with some new friends).

Fijian life is centred around the water, village, family, church and rugby, as well as the odd kava circle. If you're invited to participate in this ceremony, strap yourself in and plunge head-first into a cultural experience to remember.

The tourist hub of Fiji is Port Denarau in Nadi on Fiji’s largest island Viti Levu. Full of five-star resorts, it’s the place to go for a luxury escape or a jumping off point for adventures in the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands, or the Coral Coast.

With a holiday in Fiji, you’ll truly discover what it means to be on ‘island time’ and you won’t want it to end.
