Enjoy a romantic getaway in Samoa
As soon as you touch down on these pristine shores you’re bound to feel instantly at ease, with the laid-back pace of life a true treasure of the Samoan spirit. Leave all your worries at home because all there is to do in this island paradise is savour the moment.
Touch down in the capital Apia, located on the magical island of Upolu. Wander past open air ‘fales’ to the Maketi Fou (food market) on Fugalei Street and grab a bunch of bananas before heading to the flea market where you can grab a number of art and crafts items. By night, Apia lights up with plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants offering great food and entertainment, not to mention cultural displays of song and dance. You and your sweetheart can dance the night away or maybe just enjoy a secluded dinner, just for two… it’s all possible on a Samoan honeymoon or romantic getaway for two.
Once you’ve had your fill of city life head to the stunning white-sand beaches and tranquil lagoons that offer fantastic swimming and snorkelling. Lalomanu Beach is one of many scenic spots where you and your loved one can enjoy uninterrupted ocean vistas. Be sure to take a dip into the warm blue water and splash around with the colourful and friendly fish for a while.
Samoa is also famous for its waterfalls – and what could get more romantic than a honeymoon full of plunging into these idyllic pools and picnicking alongside them? On Upolu you can visit the Papapapai-Tai Falls, which are an impressive 100 metres high. The Togitogiga Waterfalls have gorgeous swimming holes perfect for a playful splash about, while the Sopoaga Falls are great for a dreamy picnic.
Don’t be afraid to venture off this main island, though! The island of Savaii, for instance, is home to a whole host of natural wonders. Check out the aptly named Lovers Leap, which is a breathtaking clifftop lookout with beautiful views – perfect to experience side-by-side with your loved one.
Or how about swimming with turtles? At Savaii you can visit a turtle conservation project that allows you to get up close with these gentle creatures.
For an ultra-romantic experience, head to the Mataolealelo Spring, a pool with a stunning sea view that’s also steeped in local legend.
For couples’ retreats with an active twist, don’t be afraid to head inland to explore the rainforest or the peaks and troughs of the volcanic landscape. There are some great mountains to hike and plenty of guided tours – you can even jump aboard 4WD tour and explore the rugged landscape with a great adventure!
Accommodation of all kinds is also abundant in Samoa. Splurge on your honeymoon or getaway with a luxury resort, or nestle away in a private villa and fall in love all over again.
