Talofa Lava !

Samoa is a postcard of natural beauty consisting of ten islands, each offering very distinct and different environments to explore - from the rainforest covered rugged volcanic mountain peaks of the two main islands to the vast valleys leading down to a coastline ringed with a necklace of white sandy beaches.

Within these lush green fertile valleys grow banyan trees towering above the rainforest canopy, full of tropical blooms and numerous varieties of vegetation.

Cascading waterfalls drop into rivers that cut jagged lines through the valley floor as they make their way to the ocean.

The coastline is a wonder in itself, with sparkling white sand beaches - in some places stretching for miles - and here and there are walls of sheer cliffs that drop straight into the Pacific.

Beyond the beaches and out into the blue lagoons scatter the rest of the islands that make up the Samoa archipelago, some inhabited, others with only nature’s wildlife, protected by the fringing coral reef that keep the powerful force of the Pacific Ocean at bay.

Amongst all this natural beauty are nu’u or villages with their churches, meeting houses and open fale or homes encircling the malae or village green.

Samoa is home to a people proud of their Fa’a Samoa (The Samoan way) - a culture 3000 years in the making – a heritage as rich and colourful as Samoa’s natural wonders. 

This is Samoa – where the people, culture and nature give life to the islands.
