Beautiful Samoa Holidays & Beach Resorts
Lush and intensely tropical, Samoa holidays are are amongst the most affordable in the South Pacific. These beautiful mountainous islands are a popular destination for adventure holidays with virgin rain forest, breath-taking waterfalls, blowholes and lava fields to experience, but also have excellent golf courses, and attract anglers and surfers. The islands are a hot spot for backpackers too, with simple beach huts scattered around the islands and making the country both cheap and easy to explore.
Traditional Samoan culture is an integral part of the country and one of the best reasons for heading to Samoa for a holiday; visit a village to experience its genuine island hospitality and perhaps see a game of Kilikiti, the Samoan answer to cricket. Samoan food is another reason to visit: unique and delicious – the national dish, palusami, consists of coconut cream and other ingredients wrapped in taro leaves and baked in a traditional umu.
With forest trails and waterfalls in abundance, and a rich village culture, travellers will enjoy the authentic laid back Samoa Islands. There's plenty to see and do and it's a nice 'n cheap destination to visit.
Not only are the exquisite beaches empty but you'll find even the largest resort in Samoa has a very intimate ambience. An intriguing place that will surely make you the envy of your friends.
