Samoa

Ah Beautiful Samoa – one of the Pacific’s most underrated tourist destinations. It has warm inviting locals, pristine white sand beaches, jungles and rivers, clean clear lagoons and pristine offshore reefs with plenty of fish. Samoa has a strong Christian community with hundreds of welcoming churches along the two main island’s coastal roads. Upolu offers tourists and fishermen dozens of resorts, restaurants and activities, while the more traditional island of Savai’i has a more laid back atmosphere. Savai’i is accessible by car ferry daily from Upolu and definitely worth visiting.

Culture

Samoans enjoy a deeply traditional way of life according to Fa’a Samoa – the Samoan way. Fa’a Samoa places great emphasis on providing warm hospitality and it is a way of life that stretches back more than 3,000 years. Fa’a Samoa celebrates traditional values, culture and environment. The three main pillars of Fa’a Samoa are the matai (chiefs), aiga (extended family), and the Christian church.

Fishing

The waters around Samoa bring pelagics from all over the Pacific to within just a few miles of the coasts. Blue Marlin, huge Yellowfin, Mahimahi, Sailfish and Spanish Mackerel are common. On the reefs there are plenty Giant Trevally as well as other trevally, Dogtooth Tuna, Coral Trout and more. Diving too is excellent especially on the more exposed southern shores.
