Coming to Castaway Island was a process of elimination that began twelve months ago with us vowing to take an island holiday doing 'nothing'. That meant staying in the one location and relaxing as much as possible. Given that we wanted to take Zac we decided on Fiji as it has a great reputation for its love of children.
A few weeks back and forward with the travel agent - and a peak at Geocaching.com - convinced us that the Mamanuca Islands and in particular Castaway Island was the place to go.
We're glad we made the choice. We had a wonderful time relaxing and partaking in a number of fun activities. Zac (20 months old) had a great time with us and the babysitters, who are fantastic.
It wasn't until our last full day that we actually got our webcam picture. A big thanks to our brother (Team Xesist) in Melbourne for taking the screen grab for us.
Castaway Island is such a fantastic place to stay, particularly for families with children of all ages. I recommend it highly, along with this fun webcam cache - pity there isn't a cache on the top of the hill nearby, which I climbed.
We look to visiting again in the near future.
