Pictures of Salelologa Town & East Coast Savaii in Samoa

The main town on Savaii is Saleologa, a quiet backwater with a small market, a few restaurants and shops but no accommodation. Although Savaii is the largest Samoan Island and the third largest Polynesian island after New Zealand and Hawaii, life here remains traditional. The east coast of Savai'i has some of the most beautiful villages in Samoa. The beaches are nice although lacking privacy and are great places to watch the locals fishing and playing at sunset.

The gorgeous white sand beaches of Manase are a popular travel destination with a handful of beach fales from budget to luxury. Swimming in the lagoon is excellent with some good snorkelling and offshore scuba diving.

Pictures of Asau Town & West Coast Savaii in Samoa

Much of the western coastline of Savaii is rugged with steep cliffs. On the very western tip is Falealupo Rainforest Preserve where rope ladders and walkways lead you right above the forest canopy for spectacular views of Savaii.

Pictures of South Coast Savaii in Samoa

The famed blowholes at Alofaaga on the south coast of Savaii are at their most spectacular at high tide. In places gushing to over 80 feet, this string of blowholes makes an eerie deafening noise and is a place to sit back and admire nature. Set inland from the southern coastal highway, Afu Aau waterfall is set in virgin rain forest and has a great swimming pool. Further inland along a walking trail is the ancient mound of Tia Seu, reputed the largest ancient structure in Polynesia. There are some excellent surfing reefs off the south coast and several lovely beach fale accommodation.
