Samoa travel guides

A largely undeveloped archipelago, Samoa has just a handful of beachside hotels, but this unstructured feel is a big part of the island’s appeal. You might find yourself driving along unpaved roads, pausing for livestock to cross as you go. You can stroll along beaches that are often entirely deserted. And, you’ll have the freedom to set your own pace each day rather than having fixed guided tours. Our travel guide offers a glimpse into the islands’ relaxed atmosphere and compares their laid-back nature to those of the other islands in the South Pacific. Read on to learn more about their white sands, cyan waters, pristine jungle, and islanders who are so welcoming, they may well invite you into their homes for lunch.
