Savaii Holidays

Samoa is an archipelago made up of 10 individual islands. Often referred to as the ‘real Samoa’, Savaii is a less developed island with small villages and traditional huts. It’s also the third-largest Polynesian island behind Tahiti and New Zealand.

Savaii Culture 

The key here is to be able to relax and get away from it all; the fun-loving locals and their traditional way of life will help you here. Savaii is arguably most famous for its remarkable scenery and well-preserved archaeological sites.

Being an island, Savaii as you might expect has opportunities to see colourful marine life on a snorkelling or diving trip. But as well as the tropical holiday classics — white sand, swaying palms and warm lagoons — Savaii is a cultural and scenic destination.

Stunning scenery

Home to the Alofaaga blowholes and one of Polynesia’s highest peaks Mount Silisili, Savaii has a diverse landscape with a coastline varying from dramatic cliffs and volcanic ash to pristine beaches and palm trees. One of the most dramatic geological features on the island is the Saleaula lava fields, created between 1905 and 1911 during the massive eruption of Mount Matavanu.

It is also the westernmost point in the world, so make sure you sit back with an ice cold drink and be the last to enjoy a spectacular sunset.

Samoa’s traditional way of life is fully evident in Savaii. The church-going residents will make you feel at home, so look out for the likes of dinner cooked over a volcanic rock oven called umu, a spot of kirikiti — Samoa’s version of cricket — or explore the markets of Salelologa in the southeast.

For excellent swimming for all the family, we suggest the beaches between Siufaga and Puapua. Relax, explore and recharge on a holiday to Savaii.
