It was a lovely beach to view but very rocky and tricky to get into. there was one area where there was a rock free path to get into deeper water for swimming. The fale's were perfectly place for shade.

This beach is purely amazing. We stayed 4 nights in the beautiful Moatama'a beach Fales. It was clearly the right choice. We had a nice and welcoming host, who even drove us to Togitogiga Recreation center, the To Sua Ocean Trench and to Salepaga. He even invited us to a family dinner, which was really amazing. We had an awesome... More

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.
