Spread over six pinpoint isles in the depths of the South Pacific, Western Samoa is a veritable wonderland for the budding adventurer. It's one of the more off-piste places in the region, touting cave pools, waterfalls, orchid-brimming jungles, and underwater canyons filled with coral blooms. Topping that off is a unique Polynesian heritage, which comes through in the rustic villages of Savai'i and Upolu. If you're raring to pull on the boots or the scuba gear, be sure to get hunting for cheap flights to Western Samoa from New Zealand. Departures go regularly from Auckland to Apia, with the fastest connections doing the trip direct in just four hours.
Visit the Piula Cave Pool to see one of the natural wonders of Upolu island. It's got green-blue waters and gurgling springs that merge with the Pacific Ocean.
Upolu is one of Samoa's largest islands. From its water-logged sinkholes to the naturally formed Papaseea Sliding Rocks, it's a haven for those who love to get stuck into nature.
Just four rustic villages and empty bays filled with gleaming Pacific water – that's what awaits on Manono Island!
