Samoa has two main islands - Upolu and Savaii and this short getaway will help you explore Savaii. If you'd like to explore both islands - see our Samoa self-drive featuring Upolu and Savaii

A little quieter than Upolu with less traffic and fewer high-rise buildings, Savaii has more of an 'island feel' and is regarded as the epitome of Samoa. This pristine island is home to many important landmarks as well as legends and tales that reflect Samoa's history and this, combined with the relaxed pace of life means many people fall in love with Savaii after only one visit.

The best time to visit Samoa is between May and October during dry season. This is also when many major Samoan festivals are held. During the wet season from November to April the islands can be very wet and are prone to the odd tropical cyclone. December and January is peak time in Samoa with many Australians and New Zealanders visit for the holiday period. The average annual temperature in coastal areas is around 26 degrees.
