Samoa holidays

Introduction

Samoa lies at the heart of the South Pacific in an archipelago of ten islands, half of which are uninhabited.

It's a country dominated by volcanic land formations, lush rainforests and magnificent coral reefs. Thanks to its size and terrain it's also physically imposing in a way that most Pacific islands are not.

The island of Savai'i, one of Polynesia's biggest, is home to the region's largest shield volcano, Mount Silisili.

Where to go in Samoa

Upolu

Upolu, the smaller of Samoa's two largest islands, is where three-quarters of the country's 200,000 population live. It's here that most visitors get their first taste of Samoan life, fa'a Samoa, which remains firmly rooted in the country's ancestral customs.

Savai'i

Savai'i is one of the largest islands in Polynesia, but home to a very small number of people. Cape Mulinu'u, the island's westernmost point, is the last place in the world to watch the sunset.

South Pacific Guide

The mesmerising beauty of the South Pacific is the stuff of travel clichés: crystal-clear lagoons, immaculate strips of beach, palm-fringed atolls surrounded by coral reefs, hillsides dripping with tropical foliage and volcanoes that rumble against cloudless skies.

Just back from: Samoa

Well, I'm just back from Samoa and I have to say, what a fantastic place with great people. Samoa is not your usual luxury Pacific destination.
