How They Dazzle Us

Samoa has so much going for it, but one of the most stand-out features in this wonderful country is the To Sua Ocean Trench in Lotofaga. Described by many as the most incredible swimming pool in the world, To Sua is two giant holes joined via an ancient lava tube cave. The one hole is dry and has no water while the other is around 30 meters deep and filled with aquamarine water. It is accessed via a very long ladder. To Sua also features amazing gardens, waterfalls, blow holes, rock pools and sea arches.

Traditional island food is fantastic. While some of it is completely unique other specialities are island variations of more traditional western staples.
