Savai'i is one of the largest islands in Polynesia, but home to a very small number of people.
The island's communities fringe the coastline, with collections of fela (traditional thatch roof huts) strung along the white beaches and warm lagoons.
The dramatic interior is what attracts most visitors, however, and there are plenty of geological oddities and archaeological gems to discover.
Cape Mulinu'u, the island's westernmost point, is the last place in the world to watch the sunset.
