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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Giant Clam Sanctuary and Waterfall Sauniatu. Explore Apia's surroundings by going to To Sua Ocean Trench (in Lotofaga) and Lalomanu Beach (in Lalomanu). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Baha'i House of Worship, Tiapapata, Samoa, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Immaculate Conception of Mary Cathedral, and take an in-depth tour of Robert Louis Stevenson Museum.
