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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Apia: Lalomanu Beach (in Lalomanu) and To Sua Ocean Trench (in Lotofaga). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, cast your line with a fishing tour, take in the dramatic scenery at Papaseea Sliding Rock, and don't miss a visit to Samoa Cultural Village.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Apia trip itinerary planner .

Do a combination of ferry and car from Savai'i to Apia in 2.5 hours. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
