Samoa Bucket List Travel Ideas

  • Fuipisia Waterfalls in Upolu

Why is Samoa considered a top bucket list destination?

Samoa is more remote and not perhaps the easiest destination to travel to from North America.  However, your efforts to get there will certainly be rewarded. Samoa offers quiet beaches, world-class surf with no competition for the perfect wave, amazing hiking, breathtaking waterfalls and is not overrun by tourists. Samoa is a true paradise island and offers the most authentic Polynesian culture. If a tropical paradise in the South Pacific is on your bucket list, make it Samoa.

What are the top bucket list activities on a Samoa vacation?

Samoa is a bucket-list-worthy spot to jump into amongst lush vegetation with hiking trails and waterfalls. Who doesn't have swimming under a waterfall in a tropical jungle on their bucket list? For literature and movie buffs, you can visit the museum dedicated to author Robert Louis Stevenson or the filming location of the 1953 movie Return to Paradise. If you're a surfer, then Samoa needs to be on your bucket list as the country receives amazing surf all year round. Other bucket list Samoan activities include a traditional Polynesian wedding, snorkelling or diving in the coral reefs, having a picnic on a tropical island all to yourself, visiting villages that were buried in lava from a volcanic eruption and taking a day trip to American Samoa.
