If you are looking for adventure in Samoa, there are plenty of activities to keep you engaged. Check out the following list of activities to keep you busy while at Samoa:
Cycling – Savaii is a perfect place for cycling as it stretches along more than 200 km down the coastline. Although compared to Upolu it’s much underdeveloped, it’s a nice place to hover through in a bicycle and mingle in the local colour. If you get tired of travelling, you might as well make a pit stop and go for a dip into fresh water pools or stop by the small local shops for refreshments.
Kayaking – Samoa has extensive marine lagoons that make it an excellent spot for kayaking. Notable mentioning is off shores of Aleipata, Manono and Nuusafee which depict the finest of reef systems and is uninhabited and remotely placed from the main islands. You can also find small fale resorts that offer excellent relaxation areas for one and all. You will be in great delight to swim along with the turtles and snorkel right over the corals, where you can also catch a nice view of several species of birds, whales and dolphins too.
Swimming – There is nothing more refreshing than swimming through pristine and clear waters and landing up in fales as the sun shines bright right up in the sky. Also, the waters of Samoa are seemingly the best place to learn the art of snorkelling. If you are willing to pay a little extra, you can also sign up for personalised classes.
Food and drinks– Being an island nation, Samoa is rich in its traditional culture and the centre of all activities lay around its capital city called Apia. A large number of families living in the villages in Samoa still cook their food on Umu which is a traditional pit oven fired by charcoal heated to red. Among the local food, you have Palusami that is one of the fascinating and other delicacies that emerges as a delight. You can also go around for a tour and pay the visit to the nearby cocoa plantation. You will be amazed at the sight of how they grow the cocoa if you haven’t seen one before. You can also spot the local women who meet once in a week to weave mats together. You can also try your hand at making mats and Tapa Cloth and learn the art from them. It’s a nice way to mingle with the local mass as well.
Apart from major activities like cycling and snorkelling, you can also book yourself a ticket for the famous waterfall tour that stretches for more than four hours as Samoa is full of gorgeous cascading waterfalls. There is also the Coasters Challenge that promises a day-long exercise of climbing, bush bashing, swimming and scrambling. Other fun activities include Diving, Surfing, kite surfing sliding rocks and big game fishing which can be ranged according to your choice in exchange of a small fee.
