This article covers things to do and places to visit in Samoa.  This guide will help you plan your Samoa vacation.

Places to Visit in Samoa

Piula Cave Pool (Uplou, Samoa)

This is a picturesque place to go for a swim.  It is recommended not to take any valuables here since there aren’t any safe places to put them.

Papase’ea Sliding Rocks (Uplou, Samoa)

Another place to swim but with more action since it features a natural rock slide.  Unlike other water slides around the world there are no lifeguards so your safety is your responsibility!

Alofaaga Blowholes (Savaii, Samoa)

If you visit the blowholes at the right time you will get to see the power of the ocean in nature.  However come here at the wrong time and you are likely to be very disappointed!  Another one of the great places to visit in Samoa.

Robert Louis Stevenson Museum & Mount Vaea (Vailima, Upolu, Samoa)

Brilliant author, Robert Louis Stevenson, nicknamed Tusitala upon his arrival in Samoa, this museum was his former residence in Samoa.  Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, he was heavily involved in the early development of Samoa.  He was an adventurer with a great love for the sea.  One of his quests was a quest for better health, which conquered when he settled in the islands of Samoa and built his residence in the valley with a picturesque view of Mt. Vaea.  Now a natural reserve, a walk to Mt. Vaea will fulfill your cardio requirements for the day and satisfy your sense of adventure.

Swimming with Turtles (Sato’Alepia)

Do you long to swim with turtles?  If so, then this is place for you!  This is a family run business with affordable accommodation options.  A shallow pond is the venue for the swim.  This will be a wonderful experience that you will never forget!
