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.
Visit Immaculate Conception of Mary Cathedral and Baha'i House of Worship, Tiapapata, Samoa for their historical value. Take a break from the city and head to Lalomanu Beach and To Sua Ocean Trench. Change things up with a short trip to Giant Clam Sanctuary in Savaia (about 54 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, take in the dramatic scenery at Papaseea Sliding Rock, get engrossed in the history at Robert Louis Stevenson Museum, and don't miss a visit to Apia Town Clock Tower.
