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.
Kids will enjoy Lalomanu Beach and Lefaga Beach. Step out of Apia to go to Lotofaga and see To Sua Ocean Trench, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, get interesting insight from Tours, make a trip to Samoa Cultural Village, and admire the sheer force of Sopoaga Falls.

To find ratings, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read our Apia tour planner.

Traveling by combination of ferry and car from Savai'i to Apia takes 2.5 hours. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
