Apia is the capital of Samoa and its second largest city. Founded in 1850, this charming destination is known for its famous stand-off in 1889 at its harbour. Old meets new in Apia and traditional Samoan structures stand alongside 19th century colonial styled churches, government buildings and 20th century architectural structures. The renowned writer, Robert Louis Stevenson’s final resting place was in Apia and the museum in his name honours his memory with an amazing tour of the property that he called home. The architecture on these grounds is striking and his burial site, on Mount Vaea, is open to visitors. A walk up the summit takes around 45 minutes. The artefacts are intriguing and the tour guide provides excellent information, detailing Stevenson’s life. If you are planning to book flights to Apia, make sure to visit the Samoan Cultural village as it is a must-see show. It highlights the cultural activities of Samoan people, such as tapa cloth making, carving, weaving and traditional Samoan dance. During the show, guests are treated to a delicious Samoan lunch and are invited to offer a donation, upon the show’s completion. Lalumanu Beach is ideal for relaxation and Vaiala Beach is a good place to come to for snorkelling activities. The waterfalls in Apia are stunning and Papaseea Sliding Rock is no exception. The children will have hours of fun sliding down the rocks here. This site consists of 3 small waterfalls, which are all very safe.
