Outrigger’s kids’ club is sure to keep young children entertained, with fun activities such as traditional Fijian games; while an impressive range of teen-activity programmes, such as the Sigatoka Sand Dunes tour, promises to take older children on an adventure of a lifetime. Best of all, children 12 and younger get complimentary meals daily with a Kids Eat Free special.
