We were advised by a Samoan born friend that we had to check out this beach - and we are so glad we did. It is the picture perfect beach on all accounts. It was devastated by the Tsunami but they have worked hard to get it back to its beautiful self. We had a magnificent lunch there with some... More

This side of the island is sinply stunning with beautiful swimming spots. I absolutely fell in love with the beach fale. Simple island living at its best.

With any luck you will arrive on a clear day. Beautiful beach to relax on and swim. Food was expensive and slow, but what's the hurry here? I would certainly return. Rented a fale and swam for 40 tala. (4 people)

The turquoise water was amazing. So clear. There a cost around 30 tala but also includes use of one of the beach fales. There are a couple of restaurants!cafes where food and drinks are available. Snorkelling gear can also be hired. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

We stayed at the Tau Fua Fales for three nights and enjoyed swimming at this beach several times a day. the water is clear and the coral is starting to make a comeback after the Tsunami. There was plentiful sea life with a wide range of fish. The sand on this beach is amazingly soft so a short walk along... More

Lovely beach with quite many fales (Taufua recommended!). Snorkelling not too bad, some corals in regeneration after tsunami. Better snorkelling on Namua island (day trip with lunch for 50 Tala)

The beach is gorgeous, the views from the beach our even better. The waves were so much fun, the snorkeling was great but just laying in the white sand was the best. Just felt so relaxed taking in the scenery. You must visit this beach if your visiting Samoa

So very very disappointed. We hired a car as we were staying in Apia and drove to the other side of the island specifically as my son wanted to see the beach he had seen in all the advertising. I had read on hear some 'cheeky' prices asked by local community to swim here. However, nothing could have prepared me... More

Great beach for swimming. Take a stroll along the beach or throw a ball on the sandy shore with the kids or sun bathe or just simply relax in your beach fale.....taking it all in and just appreciating the simple things in life. Simply irresistible!

The water is amazing. One of the prettiest beaches I have seen. A few bars on the beach. You don't have to pay to use this beach although some "vale" owners will tell you otherwise. As long as you don't use a vale, its for free. Well worth it.
