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.
Get out of town with these interesting Apia side-trips: To Sua Ocean Trench (in Lotofaga) and Lalomanu Beach (in Lalomanu). The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, admire the sheer force of Sopoaga Falls, and don't miss a visit to Samoa Cultural Village.

For reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Apia trip planning site .
