Places to visit in Samoa

Find out where to go in Samoa, from languid, tropical Upolu to the even more secluded sands of Savai’i

Time seems to lose all meaning in Samoa: sometimes, entire villages come to a standstill for evening prayers (heralded by the blowing of a conch). Our specialists encourage you to visit this classic South Pacific location to experience not only Samoa’s aesthetic attractions — its stark-white sand, long-cooled lava flows and a lustrously green interior — but its hybrid culture. Many Samoans are devout Christians, but you’d also notice they sport elaborate, traditional pe’a tattoos.

The best places to go in Samoa include the island of Upolu, where you can dive into gaping, jungle-rimmed saltwater swimming holes, or bathe in the calm, reef-protected shallows of the south coast’s beaches. Visit the home of author Robert Louis Stevenson, or ‘Tusitala’ (‘Writer of Tales’) as he was known locally, before exploring the wilder, volcanic-scarred Savai’i.
