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.
Visit Lefaga Beach and Tafa Tafa Beach for some beach relaxation. Immaculate Conception of Mary Cathedral and Baha'i House of Worship, Tiapapata, Samoa will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from Apia with a short trip to Giant Clam Sanctuary in Savaia, about 54 minutes away. There's still lots to do: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, admire the sheer force of Papaseea Sliding Rock, explore the activities along Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, and kick back and relax at Salamumu Beach.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, read our Apia driving holiday planning app.

Getting from Lotofaga to Apia by car takes about 1.5 hours. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
