Lalomanu is situated approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) southeast of Apia, the country's capital.
Samoa is wonderfully endowed with fabulous attractions, from firm tourist favorites to lesser known gems. Upolu, is 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast, and Siumu lies 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the east.
Experience a side of Samoa many visitors will never see by accompanying a passionate local guide on one of the guided nature walks.
You'll often find the true spirit of a place is by visiting the restaurants in the region. Try some dishes and strike up a conversation with locals. Some ingredients you'll find in a number of Samoa dishes are crayfish and taro. There are plenty of special meals here. Check out taro root seasoned and baked in oven or oka l’a (marinated raw fish). Try cooked green bananas in coconut cream at the finish of your main dishes. This is a popular choice for locals.
Learn a little Samoan in order to communicate with the locals in Samoa. "Ete ta fia siva?" ("Would you like to dance?") is handy. You'll also realise that knowing how to say "O fea e te sau ai?", which translates to "Where are you from?", can be a good conservation starter.
When it's time to head back to the comforts of home, you'll be bidding this special place a fond Tōfā soifua (farewell).
