Break From the Crowd and Fly to Samoa

  • People Canoeing in Samoa

Far from the flocks of honeymooners that descend on other islands in the South Pacific, small, beautiful Samoa is a great place to escape from the worries of daily life. It has the white sand beaches and warm South Pacific waters that you’d expect of an island getaway, but to date, it’s also largely off the tourist route, lending it a solitude and authenticity that is impossible to replicate. If you’re looking for an ideal getaway to the South Pacific, head to Samoa. 


FEATURED TRIP


While you won’t find resorts every which way you turn, Samoa is still the perfect spot to indulge in a resort stay, where you can relax on the beach, splash around in the water, and enjoy all the comforts of the sunny island climate. At Goway, we have a few recommendations for where to stay. Le Vasa is a secluded resort located conveniently close to the airport. If you have a taste for luxury, Le Vasa will satisfy your palate. Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa is another relaxing safe haven on the island, offering rooms amidst tropical gardens and alongside the sandy beaches leading to the Pacific. Coconuts Beach Club Resort & Spa similarity offers suites in gorgeous surroundings. 

Sua Ocean Trench in Samoa

Samoa’s tropical environment makes it a hugely appealing spot for all manner of water and jungle-based activities. While the infrastructure for diving is less robust than in other parts of Polynesia, this also means that the sites are less developed and you have a good chance of seeing huge numbers of tropical fish if you head on a scuba dive or snorkelling adventure. You’ll also find plenty of gorgeous landscapes to traverse on foot. The Alofaaga Blowholes or Taga Blowholes on the island of Savai’i are incredible natural blowholes formed in the rock of the coastline. The water spurts up at regular intervals as the tide comes in. Locals sometimes even throw coconuts into the holes, which become projectiles when the blowholes erupt. Samoa is one of the South Pacific’s best kept secrets. You won’t find many fellow tourists jockeying for space and accommodations, but you’ll still enjoy the gorgeous climate and laidback lifestyle that makes Polynesia so famous.
