I don't really want to share this as it was so good Id hate there to be millions of people there to spoil it! But Vaiula beach fales was the place to be. Ideally located on the nicest beaches, with lava tube caves on the property. We had the best time ever. Local kids to play with and local villagers... More

Great beach to swim at. Water is pristine clear and is great to snorkel at. There is a bar that you can sit outside a check out the sights

We stayed 5 nights on our trip in samoa at the Maota-o-Ma'a Beach Fales by Alaimoana and his family. The beach is beautiful and the fales are clean, spacious and well maintained. The family cooked us traditional food and took us to church. Our favourite place to stay in samoa. Recommend!

Very close to Apia...about 50 minutes by car...not too crowded and lovely Aunty Mago (recently pictured on John Key's last visit) a real character to make you feel at home...down the Mormon Church turn off and left at the coast....

This was a tour stop during our cruise ship's day in Apia, Western Samoa. TafaTafa Beach is soooo beautiful. The water was cooler than expected. Very refreshing. The water's bottom, near shore, was quite rocky and it took me a while to find a soft spot to wade and stand. It was heaven... being in the South Pacific, was exciting... More

Lovely white sand beach. It is down an unsealed road, but we had a 4WD so it was pretty easy to get to. It was 20WST to use the beach, and another 20 to use the fales. We went snorkelling there, and while there wasn't heaps of variety we still had a great time seeing all the bright tropical fish.

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

The sand and fale's are great! The beach was obviously damaged by the tsunami but they have rebuilt great. Go for a walk along the beach to experience some of the local birds.
