Savaii is the largest island of the Samoan archipelago, the capital
Apia is on
the more populated island of Upolu, which is also the seat of government and
centre of commerce.
Savaii is considerably less developed than Upolu, dotted with secluded beaches and
crowned in the centre by the 609ft Mt Matavanu, whose eruptions in 1905 caused
the people to migrate to neighboring Upolu.
East of (Western) Samoa you find the islands of
American Samoa, with
its capital Pago Pago - located on the island
Tutuila. Pago Pago is a bustling
town, but a lot less "American" as you might expect. On the northside of
Tuituila you find a splendid
National Park -
ideal for nature walks. Perhaps one of the most beautiful islands in the
South Pacific is Ofu, with its
razorsharp cliffs, jungle and untouched coralreefs.
We have also included Tokelau
in the Samoa section, because it is only accessable from Samoa (by
regular cargoshipping service). Tokelau is a very remote independent
Island group, formed by several
atolls.For more general information on Samoa,
