Our extended family recently held our family reunion in Samoa, and one of our days was spent at the Moega A Manaia Beach fales in Tafatafa Beach, Upolu. What an awesome choice! The hosts - Aunty Mago and Mafa - are very friendly and were a pleasure to deal with. As soon as we arrived, they welcomed us all and... More

We were greeted by our beautiful hostess who allocated 4 beach fales with mats and pillows to relax in. She was very hospitable, keeping tabs on most things we did. We rang ahead and had a beautiful umu prepared for lunch. It was so easy, we just turned up with our drinks. There was also hot water for any of... More

Stunning beach. Lined with Fales you can rent for the day, which includes toilets and showers. Snorkeling from the beach is not wonderful, great for kids as the water is not to deep.

The beach here is deserted- which is part of the charm. If you walk far enough East, you come across a beautiful patch of rainforest complete with mosses and epiphytes.

Beautiful beach to swim at - still find it difficult that it was devastated by the tsunami. Crystal clear blue water, very much like paradise! Worth a drive out from Apia, if you were staying not staying locally.

Beaches -- I'm not their biggest fan. But lagoons and water -- I love those. Tafa Tafa has sand, shade, beach platforms (I think they're called 'tefla") to sit in, toilets, grass and lots of palm trees. The real attraction for me was the water. It's a foot to fix feet deep for the 250 yards out to the reef... More
