Visit Samoa

Samoa has one of the South Pacific’s most beautiful and varied coast-lines, complemented by a lush mountainous interior. An ideal island getaway, visitors here can pick and choose between paddling round kiddie pool lagoons of vast breadth but knee-high depth, to catching the spray off gargantuan waves crashing into craggy sea cliffs. Or both, because more often than not such lazy lagoons and hard-pounded precipices are just a few minutes’ drive apart, and surrounded on all sided by waterfalls, swimming holes, cave pools, white sand beaches and rainforest trails.
