Travel to Samoa

Samoa is an independent state, but is also a group of islands that includes lands under multinational control. American Samoa, for example, is part of the island group, but under the administration of the United States. Until 1962, the islands were governed by New Zealand, but are now fully independent. The islands have inhabited for at least 3,000 years, with Lapita and Polynesia influences dominating the local culture.

The strongest force in life on Samona is called “fa’a.” It’s the traditional island way of life, maintained despite long-term foreign influences. You’ll find cultural customs are part of the regular routine and a fascinating experience to enjoy as you explore what the islands can offer.

Many of the activities you’ll find available to you on Samoa involve the beach and watersports. It is a volcanic region, so walking, trekking, and climbing opportunities are widely available as well, especially around Mount Vaea and Upolu.

The islands of Samoa tend to have beaches that are bordered by reefs, which creates calm waters that are perfect for snorkeling. You’ll find the island interiors are rich in waterfalls and gorgeous gorges. For those who love watching wildlife, you’ll find close access is available on many of the smaller islands. Some have been turned into wildlife sanctuaries.

There are unique experiences to enjoy on Samoa as well, such as the Alofaaga Blowholes, which offer geysers and a network of caves to explore.

Samoa can offer you refined resorts and rugged adventures in any combination you desire. Discover more of what this island nation can offer today and you will see just how tempting a holiday here can be.
