About Samoa

Samoa has also received quite a bit of exposure as a surf destination over the last couple of years. A number of breaks are available on Upolu and Savaii. Surf packages can be individually arranged including flights, accommodation and meals.

Aganoa Beach Retreat (formerly Savaii Surfaries) offer accommodation and surf transfer packages on Savaii with beach fale accommodation. Savaii is a truly wonderful island and surf destination with a very good surf guide.

On Upolu, Samoana Resort is of a slightly higher standard and is perfect for families while also being totally focused on maximising the surf adventure. Boat and car access is offered plus an idyllic beach location and facilities.

Also located on the south coast of Upolu is Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa. This 3 1/2 - 4 star resort has its own massage and spa complex and is great for those looking for resort standard accommodation while being close to the surf.

Salani Surf Resort, again located on the southern coast has a perfect surf location on arguably the two finest and most consistent breaks (Salani Left & Salani Right) on Upolu. They can also access several other breaks around the island on both South and North coasts. In our winter months, the main surfing areas are on the south of each island with surf from the north (and south) in the summer months. The winter season sees very consistent swells with east trade winds, Summer still sees consistent south swells and north swells, and the trade winds switch to a very light northerly direction. These trades all year round generally come up mid/late morning and back off late afternoon.

Note- most breaks in Samoa are well offshore, some plagued with strong currents and tides and are therefore difficult to access. Salani Surf Resort and Savaii Surfaris minimize the time and hassle in surfing these waves whilst striving to provide safe, fast, guided access to the best waves.

Samoa, like Tonga, does not have a big tourist industry and everything works on local time. Samoa is a relatively undeveloped destination for surfers and travellers. Virgin Samoa & Air New Zealand fly to Apia on a regular basis.
