The Samoan capital of Apia serves as the first port of call for most visitors, and it plays home to a number of historic sites, a laid-back seaside promenade, and a range of hotels and restaurants keeping tourists entertained.
Kids will enjoy Lalomanu Beach and Tafa Tafa Beach. Change things up with a short trip to To Sua Ocean Trench in Lotofaga (about 1h 05 min away). The adventure continues: take in the dramatic scenery at Papaseea Sliding Rock, tour the pleasant surroundings at Lefaga Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, and pause for some serene contemplation at Immaculate Conception of Mary Cathedral.
