The Samoan capital of Apia serves as the first port of call for most visitors, and it plays home to a number of historic sites, a laid-back seaside promenade, and a range of hotels and restaurants keeping tourists entertained.
Change things up with these side-trips from Apia: Lalomanu Beach (in Lalomanu) and To Sua Ocean Trench (in Lotofaga). Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, take in the dramatic scenery at Papapapaitai Falls, hunt for treasures at Old Apia Market, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
