Beautiful Samoa: the cradle of Polynesia

Of all the places Robert Louis Stevenson (famed travel writer and author of "Treasure Island") explored, it was Samoa where he chose to stay, and to be buried. These lush volcanic islands are among the most beautiful places on Earth, and the cradle of Polynesian culture.

We spent time on both of Samoa’s two main islands—Upolu and Savai’i—and dove off of Manono Island, which is found in between. Both main islands have incredible swimming holes, including at the base of enormous tropical waterfalls, as well as lagoons, lava fields, blowholes, and pristine beaches...not to mention some world-class surf breaks.

Some of our favorite spots were Lalomanu Beach, Alofaaga Blowholes, and the drive to Falealupo, all of which are featured in the video. But for as much as we loved Samoa’s natural beauty, it was the warmth and the hospitality of the local people which blew us away.
