Samoa: Islands of Natural Beauty

Samoa is defined by its beautiful long beaches and cascading waterfalls against backdrop of rugged volcanic mountains.

Located in the South Pacific, Samoa has two main islands within its ten islands, Upolu and Savai’i, which both boast a coastline of white sandy beaches and walls of cliffs outlining the Pacific.

Upolu is home to Apia, the most populated city in Samoa, and also renowned for Lalomanu Beach located on the south eastern tip of the island, a stretch of white beach that showcases the country’s amazing natural beauty.

Those that visit Lalomanu Beach can go further along the coast to Lotofaga, a protected marine reserve rich with diverse amounts of tropical fish, and take a closer look at the different species with a snorkel or scuba tank.

Savai’i comprises of tumbling waterfalls such as the Sopoaga Falls in Le Mafa Pass Road and the popular Afu Aau waterfall that reaches deep into the ground enabling people to dive, swim and splash amongst it.

Another prime attraction of Savai’i is the Pulemelei Pyramid which, constructed by natural basalt stones, reaches 12 metres high and is the largest ancient structure in Polynesia.

There is also an abundance of Fa’a Samoa cultural heritage within the jungle covered mountains and valleys, with villages comprising of churches, meeting houses and open homes.

With palm frond-roofed open beach fales to bungalows above the azure lagoons, Samoa’s accommodation facilities remain as traditional as before to offer travellers a more authentic experience, it’s no wonder that in the past few years more and more visitors have chosen Samoa as their holiday destination.
