In the capital city of Apia you can visit the former home and grave of famous writer Robert Louis Stevenson. The Museum of Samoa contains a large number of exhibits and displays and is a great place to learn more about the island’s history and culture. Elsewhere on the island, you can climb the highest mountain in Samoa, Mount Fito, for amazing views, explore Lake Lanoto’o National Park, visit small traditional villages, and enjoy very pretty waterfalls. A particular favourite is the fun Papase’ea Sliding Rocks where, as the name suggests, you can whoop with joy as you slide your way into the deliciously cool pool at the bottom of the waterfall.
You will also want to spend some time relaxing on the famous Samoan beaches. Let the tropical sun gently caress you and when it’s time to cool down head into the ocean for a swim. Great surfing, snorkelling, fishing, and diving are also available, and there are a number of smaller islands within easy reach that are perfect for day-tripping. A visit to the unspoiled island of a href="https://www.wotif.com/Savaii-Hotels.d6320271.Travel-Guide-Hotels">Savai’i is highly recommended!
