Seeking Tranquility on a Samoa Tour

by Jan 31, 2022

A trip to Samoa is the perfect antidote to any stress or crisis. Holidaying in this remote South Pacific country allows you to slow down and re-establish your internal rhythms. Its exotic natural beauty and warm culture transport you away from the rest of the world.

In this world, the sun is always shining, and warm Samoan smiles add to the joy. Getting to this Polynesian country is simple when you have Vibes Group UK on your side. We’ll make sure you’re in a peaceful beachfront oasis where you’ll understand why famous author Robert Louis Stevenson chose to live in this idyllic Eden.

Water is everywhere in Samoa, and not just because you’re in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Water-based activities on Upolu, the main island, aren’t limited to swimming or snorkelling in tranquil lagoons or visiting sublime Lalomanu Beach. Take a trip to the interior, where lush tropical forests and abundant birdlife lead to spectacular waterfalls such as the three-level Togitogiga Waterfall and the Papapapaitai Falls, which plunge into an ancient volcanic crater. Visit the freshwater Piula Cave Pool and the fascinating To-Sua Ocean Trench on the west coast, a 30-meter-deep natural volcanic swimming hole filled with turquoise seawater.

Experience the incredible culture of these islands at Samoa Cultural Village, the small Museum of Cultural Heritage, local churches, and a fiafia dance performance in Apia, Samoa’s charming waterfront capital. A short boat ride across a lagoon will take you to car-free Manono Island, where you can experience everyday island life. Another excellent day trip is to the beautiful island of Namua, which is only ten minutes from Upolu’s east coast.

Savaii is Samoa’s largest island, with untouched wilderness and rugged volcanic hills, cones, and caves. The sugar-white sands of Manase and Satuiatua are appealing, but there’s much more to do. Swiftlets can be seen at Pe’ape’a Cave, you can catch ocean spray at Alofaaga Blowholes, and you can relax in the cool pools below Afu Aau Waterfall. Swim with rescued sea turtles at the Sato’alepai turtle sanctuary, go on a Canopy Walk in the Falealupo Rainforest Reserve, or explore the fascinating Sale’aula Lava Fields were formed when Mt. Matavanu erupted over 100 years ago.

When nature and culture are necessary, let us design a custom Samoa itinerary for you. We suspect you’ll call us and ask to extend your stay as you drive along the Samoan coast, past quaint villages and waters reflecting infinite shades of blue.
