Fodor's Review

Fancy a touch of paradise for a day, or perhaps even a week? Lalomanu Beach, on the southeastern tip of Samoa's main Upolu island, is just that—a long, white stretch of sand, edged by a grassy verge with low-slung palm trees and lapped by azure waters. The long beach is dotted with fales (open side huts) available for overnight stays, and there are a few restaurants within walking distance. Back in business after being washed away in the 2009 tsunami, Lalomanu is perhaps the most beautiful of the many south coast beaches. Unfortunately, the once colorful coral was destroyed, although snorkelers will see a few fish, and the swimming's great. Other beautiful beaches a little farther to the west along the South Coast Road include Salepaga and Tafatafa, also great for swimming and dotted with fales.
