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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Plantation House Samoa and Museum of Samoa. Do some cultural sightseeing at Tiapapata Art Centre and Robert Louis Stevenson Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Apia: Giant Clam Sanctuary (in Savaia), Lalomanu Beach (in Lalomanu) and To Sua Ocean Trench (in Lotofaga). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Lefaga Beach, admire the sheer force of Papapapaitai Falls, contemplate the waterfront views at Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, and identify plant and animal life at Malua Turtle Feeding Pool.
