Fiji 

Nightly Parties 

If you're going to be 17 at schoolies, Fiji is the perfect destination. All 7 nights of schoolies in Fiji has parties that are open to everyone under and over 18. Schoolies who are over 18 simply get wristbands that signal to the bar that they are over 18. Epic!

Cloud 9

The stunning party pontoon, Cloud 9, is an optional extra you can book when travelling to Fiji schoolies, but you would be mad to not go! The pontoon has to be seen to be believed, floating in the stunning blue waters of Fiji, the pontoon has tunes, a pizzeria and a bar. Schoolies of all ages can go to the pontoon, with once again 18+ schoolies given wristbands. You can see pics and read a review of Fiji schoolies here in our blog, I Went to Fiji Schoolies, This is What I Thought.
