Upolu

ABOVE THE WATER

Upolu is Samoa’s smaller but busier island. It is known as a fun, tropical paradise on which you can choose to spend your days relaxing by the pool or participating in a myriad of activities that are available on the island. Some of the main attractions on the island include;

The Fugalei Fresh Produce Market
This buzzing market will have you walking around in awe as the locals exchange their brightly colours goods with anything from fresh fish to the local delicacy taro to tops and wood carvings.

Piula Cave Pool
Located on the west coast of Upolu is a cave pool right next to the ocean. The pool is filled with cool, crystal clear water and is great fun – particularly if there are not too many other tourists there. Swim inside the cave right to the back and duck your head underwater. Here you will find a small gap in the wall. If you’re feeling brave, swim through the hole into a cove on the other side – an incredible feeling. Be surrounded by hundreds of friendly fish while doing so.

To Sua Ocean Trench

To Sua Ocean Trench
To Sua is an incredible trench located on the east coast of Lotofaga. Climb down a steep ladder (not for the faint hearted) and find yourself in the most amazing natural pool with the water flowing in and out from the ocean and swaying you around. At the end of your swim, rinse off in the natural fresh water pool inside the trench, then head back up to the top and relax in the fales overlooking the ocean.

Papase’ea Sliding Rocks
Climb down the stairs to multiple rock pools and waterfalls located in the middle of the rainforest! You will find yourself exploring the numerous waterfalls, and sliding down some natural rock slides if you dare face the rather large drop!

Blow Holes
The blowholes are located in the village of Taga on the South West of Samoa and are an amazing sight. Watch as the waves roll underneath the volcanic rocks, building enough pressure to force the water to blow out from any gaps in the rocks creating a picturesque sight.

Apia Markets
There are a number of clothing and souvenir markets in Apia that are bustling with locals and tourists! Find trinkets, Samoan carved axes, tapa cloth artwork, cowry shell necklaces, hand carved kava, fresh bunches of the most brightly colour flowers you’ve ever seen and more!

Togitogiga Waterfall
Located about 20 minutes from Saletoga Sands, these waterfalls are perfect for exploring and quick dip on a hot day.

BELOW THE WATER

Diving in Upolu is great with sites for beginners on the inner reefs, and the advanced diver on the outer reef where you will find some fantastic deeper walls and drift dives amongst pelagics! Upolu’s famous diving is in the Palolo Deep National Marine Reserve at Vaiala Beach. The most popular dive here is a blue hole bordered by steep coral walls that are home to a countless of tropical reef fish. As well as this, expect colourful coral gerdens, and interesting dive sites, with visitors including spinner dolphins, stingrays and even the off whale!
