The healing powers of hitting the beach with your family

In 2016, 10 million Australians arrived back into the country after short-term trips away, according to Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). 

Fiji consistently makes the top 10 list for most frequented vacation destinations for Australians, reports the ABS. Discover how family holidays in Fiji are more than just a time for fun in the sun – a trip to the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort could also be good for your health!

Get your daily dose of vitamin D

With average temperatures of around 25 degrees Celsius, it's no lie that the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort on the island of Vanua Levu welcomes a lot of sun. Whether relaxing or playing games on the beach – even for as little as 15 minutes – you can gain a significant amount of your daily vitamin D intake from the sun. Vitamin D helps to regulate immune systems, as well as lowering blood pressure and the risk of heart attacks.

Remember, any time spent in the sun should be spent wearing sunscreen and protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses.

Salt water: Did you know that the salt water from the clean and clear sea next to the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort has many health benefits? It can work to remove impurities and close pores, balance the skin's oil production and heal scrapes and cuts.

Unplug and unwind

Spending a 5 star family holiday in Fiji comes with many wonderful benefits such as fantastic food, action-packed adventure and breathtaking beaches, with happiness being at the top of the list. A recent Roy Morgan study found that 79.4 per cent of Australians planning a holiday in the next 12 months had a more positive outlook on life than the 67 per cent of those who don't.
