'Easy-going, merry and leisure-loving’: Robert Louis Stevenson’s assessment of his adopted homeland still rings true today. Our specialists have explored both the coastline and the green, fertile interior of this South Pacific island nation. They’re brimming with ideas for how to make the most of your own vacation to Samoa — whether you choose to retreat there at the end of a busy Australasia itinerary, or include a visit into a more wide-ranging trip to the South Pacific.
You might visit sleepy villages to hear traditional church singing, before touring farther inland to see lava tubes and volcanic terrain. You can bathe in open-to-the-skies natural swimming holes, visit Louis Stevenson’s former home and grave, and while away hours on Samoa’s beaches before cooling off in sheltered ocean lagoons. Our specialists will also tell you to witness for yourself the Samoans’ blend of devout Catholicism with deep-seated Polynesian spirituality. You can encounter it through experiences like attending a church service, or hearing the villages’ call to prayer.
